AVCEs are vocational A levels - basically an A level with "applied" in the title.

They're offering based on you getting BC in your A levels and ignoring your BTEC.

A "B" at A Level is 100 ucas points. If this uni is asking for 280 from 2 A Levels they're expecting A*A* - so it's likely to be a mistake

ack yes - my maths is rubbish. In my defence I was seriously lacking in pizza half an hour ago

In that case 280 from *at least* 2 A levels seems sensible

Basically OP you need to pass your 2 A levels AND get 280 tariff points in total from all your qualifications including those 2 A levels.
