    So I have a Distinction*Distinction* in Double Health and Social Care, a D in A-Level Photography (I got a C in AS-Level) and an E in AS-Level English (I only did English for one year because I obviously didn't do well enough to continue). Does anyone know if I use the English for points? Or does anyone know how many I have altogether? Don't really understand how it works as we didn't get told at sixth form.

    Yes you use all of those qualifications for UCAS points. Qualifications and some extra curricular activities are worth certain amounts of UCAS points, higher grades mean more points. Some universities use the UCAS points system whereas others (usually higher ones) actually ask for specific grades in subjects. You can find on the UCAS website how much a grade is worth for a certain qualification.
