    lol

    was wondering if they even read the applications of their applicants before they give them an offer

    How the hell is someone supposed to get 577 ucas points, for example?

    Using the old system...
    140*4 = 560. 4 A*s is still not enough.

    Am I missing something? Either way, I don't think that's a requirement.

    What we don't know is how many applications and other details related to that. How do I infer likelihoods and other information from these statistics?

    There's extra things which one could do to gain more Ucas points. Like an EPQ, which is equivalent to an AS grade. So obviously they'd have A*A*A*A*a

    I know. Once you know how to get the A*s, I think the rest of it is just time-consumption. Seriously though, 4 A*s (say it's not maths and fm) and also an epq plus other stuff. Hard work. And I hear people saying it's not worth doing 4 A-levels, well don't these stats disprove that claim?

    I think it is worth doing 4 A-levels, if you can handle it, because it gives you more knowledge and opportunities for example I dropped chemistry so now it would be much more difficult to pursue a career in medicine. So 4 A-levels give more pathway opportunities.

    In the grand scheme of things, I'm sure universities don't really care if you do 3 or 4, but going deeper, I'm sure that's not entirely true. Of course, no one will choose a candidate with 4 over 3 just because of the numbers.

    This info is already given at uni/course level in Which? University. And WhatUni.

    Also UCAS points are irrelevant for the universities that make A-level grade offers.
