    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone knows whether AS levels can count towards your UCAS points?

    I got B,B,C at A2 level which gives me 280 UCAS points.
    I also got a D in another AS level which I didn't continue to A2 level because I really struggled with it, but I wondered if the points for this can be added to my UCAS score as it would give me another 30 points?

    One of the graduate jobs I'm looking at applying for when I've finished uni asks for

    Minimum 300 UCAS points
    • Minimum 2:1 degree or expected result
    • A-C grades at GCSE and A Level
    • Good written and verbal communication skills
    • Willingness to handle responsibility
    • Ambition
    I'm doing two months of paid work experience with the company over the summer and had hoped that this would help me get on to their graduate scheme next year when I finish uni, but I don't know if my UCAS points aren't enough? Obviously I will try to ask them when I do my experience

    I was just wondering if anyone had any experience of this? A lot of accounting firms look for graduates with 300 UCAS points to join their ACA training scheme and I'm worrying that I will not be able to get on to many of the schemes if my AS level doesn't count?

    Thanks

    No they don't.

    UCAS point offers for graduate jobs almost always mean from your best three A levels excluding general studies.

    Edit: if you do some work experience with them first they may overlook the requirement - especially given you're only one grade off
