    Hi all
    Got some questions

    I've already applied to Universities this year through UCAS and have used up all my choices but I don't think I'll be getting into a Uni as I don't have enough ucas points. So I am planning to be study a 1 year course at my same college which should boost my points

    2 questions

    1. Can I use UCAS again to apply to Universities next year?

    2. Will my UCAS points add up if i study another course? Or do the points come only from one course?


    Course information:

    I have recently obtained a BTEC diploma in Business Enterprise & Entrepreneurship Level 3 (Only got 120 UCAS points from that)

    I am planning to study AAT Accounting & Finance Level 3 which is a 1 year course and I should be able to acquire around 160 points from this. Will my points add up?

    Hope some can help, thanks in advance!

    Yes you can apply next year but you will have to do everything again.

    Some universities will allow you to use points from both courses and others won't you will have to check on UCAS in the course entry requirements section.

    Both of your courses are related to business, so if you're applying for related subjects at uni then both should count. But if you're applying for an unrelated course unis might not accept them. You will need to check this with the unis.

    You will need to make a completely new application. This means you'll have to enter everything again, and write a new personal statement. You can use bits of your previous PS, but since a whole year has passed you should have new things to write in it.
