    Okay from my FIRM offer I need

    280 points to include at least 240 points from 6 and/

    or 12 unit awards

    and my INSURANCE I need..

    220 Tarriff Points with 160 points achieved through

    12 unit or 6 unit courses.

    But I dont get the whole way they've written it out!

    In my AS I got BBCE.

    B - 2 marks off an A (238)
    B - Mid B think I got 216 and B grade is between 210 and 240.
    C - 2 marks off a B (208)

    I've dropped the E.. only get 20 Tarriff points for that I think!

    I dont really understand what I need to get to get each..and what I need to get in my A2 courses to join with my AS results to achieve my FIRM target..

    Any help would be great!!

    For your firm, 280 is BBC, 240 is CCC, so guess that means a total of 280 points, but at least 240 (CCC) from your A Levels (or AVCEs if you were doing that) etc- the rest can come from AS levels etc. If you have 20 points at as, you could get away with BCC at A Level. (BCC= 260 points)

    For the second I would guess 220 (CCD) with at least 160 (CC or um DDE?) from your three a levels.

    I hope I got that right. If you have any doubt, check with your Unis.

    What do you mean 'could get away with'..... lol its not a way of cheating to get higher.....they all count dont they?


    If I have the BBC remembering one B is 2 marks off an A and the C is 2 marks off a B...

    and I need BCC......

    What do I need to get in my A2 courses to achieve that?

    When I say BCC I guess its BCC and any other equvalent. i.e. ACD etc.
