What course does it say on your certificate, and what course have you selected on UCAS? It looks as though you have selected a different one.

It says Btec level 2 health and social care (previously first diploma) so ucas told me if u started the course after September 2010 that I should put it as Btec extended diploma because that's when they changed the name.

I'm guessing there was some sort of miscommunication if UCAS told you to do that, as an Extended Diploma would result in three overall grades (as it shows in your original post). So unless you have three grades; you haven't done the Extended Diploma.

Edit: ensure that you've also selected the correct level of qualification.

This website may help outline the types of Level 2 qualification:

Level 2 is equivalent to GCSEs and does not carry any UCAS points.

Still should be declared though.
