    Dude, I only have 500... Which subjects did you do at A-Level?
    That's still impressive in the context of the real world, haha. TSR is screwed.

    I did Geography, English lit, Japanese, AS Psychology and EPQ. You?

    TSR members must account for at least 3/4 of all A*/A grades awarded I did A2 History, Art History, English Lit, AS Chemistry and EPQ. (I both hated and sucked at Chemistry) What were your grades, if you don't mind me asking? I don't really get UCAS points.

    Yeeeeeah, I just did it by threes of standard A2 grade combinations based on this chart - so you have to have between 450 and 510

    I was just reading that link and I did a Level 2 Creative and Media diploma which required me to do 3 functional skills exams, apparently worth 10 UCAS points each :O Do I count those or is that cheating?

    Because it's pretty obscure and unis prefer your UCAS points to come from three A-Levels... But you're right, UCAS says they can count toward HE so I'm just gonna count it

    This is a thread about points, not Uni preferences :woo:

    Already have an A at AS - 60, and an A at FSMQ - 20.
    Hoping for 4A*, but I suspect it'll be more like A*A*AA - 520.

    So between 600 and 640.

    It's true... for someone to go on a study/student forum, I guess most of them will be pretty ~studious~.
    Ooh wow, that's a cool mix! What are you doing now?
    I got A*s in Geography, English lit and EPQ and As in Japanese and AS Psychology.
    Nor do I really. I think I've worked mine out right! I'm just going to roll with it.

    Same! For my course the average is 553 and I have 500
    Honestly, it's a ridiculous amount! Than again, I didn't do anything like general studiesnor EPQ so that's extra points... If I had got that A* in French, it would be 440. Damn those three marks :unimpressed:
