My offer is 300 UCAS points for uni but I don't understand how to work out what I need to obtain at a level to achieve this.

In my AS levels I got C,C,C,D (but hoping to resist the D to make it another C). So, at the moment, according to the UCAS tariff table I have 150 UCAS points, this would presumably mean I need another 150 UCAS in my A Levels to achieve the 300 points to get into uni, meaning if I got 3 C's I would get an additional 240?

Please could ups someone explain or let me know if this is right or wrong?

If you got C,C,C at A2 and had 1 AS of a D, you would have 270 UCAS points. If you got C,C,C at A2 and 1AS of a C, you would have 280 UCAS. In order to get 300, you need BBC and an AS level of C. Good luck!

You get 140 for an A*, 120 for an A, 100 for a B, 80 for a C, 60 for a D and 40 for an E at A2. All AS grades are worth half their A2 equivalent BUT you can only count AS points for the subjects you did not carry on to A2, and only if the offer allows AS points to be included. If you got CCC at A2, you would only have 240 points, plus the 30 you would have for the D at AS, so you would still be short.

I know it's not a-levels but i'm struggling to get my head around UCAS points aswell,

I have an NVQ level 3 extended diploma and a City and Guilds level 3 diploma both in engineering,

Are these worth any UCAS points?

Thank you in advance
