    I have a conditional offer for September to obtain a minimum of 260 Ucas points. Points are to be obtained from at least 2 GCE A Levels. If I obtained a D in A level German and a D in AS level psychology, what would be the lowest possible grades I could obtain in my other two subjects in order to get into uni? Thank you

    260 - 90 = 170, so you'd need 170 points worth in 2 remaining A-Levels

    Could you also get 2 Ds at A2, a D at AS and an A at A2. Would that work?

    Thank you! I get the 260 ucas points bit but then 'points are to be obtained from at least 2 A levels' confuses me

    As long as you have two A-Levels that contribute to the 260, then you should be good to go (as far as I understand the points system)
