Hi guys, sorry if this is something obvious but I'm a little confused... I have supposedly earned 602 'points' from my GCSE results this week but I don't really get what these are/what they mean? I've searched around and seen posts saying that these aren't UCAS points, or at least the GCSE points wouldn't go towards university application... could someone explain for me? Thank you !

I think some colleges and 6th forms use them as entry requirements, but I'm not sure
My school didn't say anything to them about us and I can't find much on the internet so I'm not sure there's much point to them tbh

They're used to calculate your attainment and progress. They're more for schools than students so pretty irrelevant.

At our school, they determine how many a levels you can do you add points from ur 8 best GCSEs ( ur 8 top grades ) and then divide by 8 to find ur APS (average points score) you need a minimum of 46 APS to be considered able to do a fourth a level but 48 or above score will mean it is completely ur choice
