    In most cases, no. But it's probably best to check with individual universities.

    I would assume yes given that it's average entry points and not average offer points. However, the majority of universities will not consider them/will have offers specifically excluding them, so in theory they could push up average entry points, as the offer-holder will have an extra a-level that has a value in tariff points but is excluded from offers.

    Yes it does - it includes any tariff bearing qualifications

    While this might be true for university entry requirements - the stats that feed through to league tables do not differentiate between subjects at A/AS level.
