# AS +A2 ucas points total help Watch

1. I am having trouble understanding how I work out my total UCAS points total.I got my AS results today and they are As follows.

Psychology A
Geography B
Spanish. C
maths D
Science in society B

Looks like I will have to take psychology,Geography and Spanish at A2 (because my maths result was disastrous ,don't know what went wrong)

My teachers tell me I should replicate A,B,C for these subjects at A2.How do I calculate total UCAS points for these results at AS And A2 when searching for a degree course?

Any help would be much appreciated.
2. AS grades are worth half the points for a full A-level grade.

For a full A-level, these are the points you'd get;

A* - 140
A - 120
B - 100
C - 80
D - 60
E - 40

There's a grade/UCAS Tariff conversion table here: http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works.../tariff-tables

Are you able to work things out from that?
4. Thanks for replying.I guess my question is do I add the UCAS points for the AS subjects I drop to the A2 results I get or not?

If yes and I replicate AS results on A2 subjects then I calculate the total as follows:

Psychology AS=A grade + A2=A grade= 120 UCAS points
Geography AS=B grade + A2=B grade= 100 UCAS points
Spanish. AS=C grade + A2=C grade= 80 UCAS points
Science in Society AS=B grade =50 UCAS points???
maths AS=D grade=30 UCAS points???

Total UCAS points= 380

surely that can't be right,would any university accept UCAS total of 380 amassed in this way?

That looks correct to me, but bear in mind that any institutions will specify that you achieve a given UMS score from a limited number of A-Levels (often three), rather than racking up points from a large number of different example.
