    I was looking through clearing for international business and I came across Leeds Met and the points required were only 120. At first this made me kind of think that maybe it wouldn't be worth it because the points were so low, and it could possibly reflect on the quality of the course/uni. But then I looked at the website and the points needed for 2014 are 300. :confused:

    I just don't understand this. Could anybody shed some light on this, possibly? I know points can go up or down each year but more than doubling the points is a little drastic.

    I understand confusion at points as well! It may be that the minimum number of points required from a levels is 120 and that normally you would be asked for more from other qualifications eg As, EPQ but due to lack of interest it has been reduced?

    I'm very confused with clearing though! Could be a long day!

    Ahhh, after looking at the website again it said

    Clearing Requirements: Access to HE Diploma, pass overall with 60 credits, a minimum of 45 credits at Level 3.

    Level 6 entry - Applicants should have a HND, Foundation degree or equivalent award in the cognate subject of Business.


    That's probably why it's so low. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it. :facepalm:
