    I did an Access to HE Science and want to know what the A level equivalent is, as I have been asked some job interviews.

    My results are;

    Distinctions= 15
    Merits= 43
    Passes= 3

    All are at Level 3.

    Help appreciated.

    You did the old Access to HE Diploma, where all units were graded and there's no UCAS Tariff for it. For the new Access to HE Diploma, we are only graded on 45 units out of 60 at D/M/P, and the other 15 are simply Pass or Fail.

    Maybe you could work out a Tariff under the new system using your 45 best credits? so that would be 15 Distinctions and 30 Merits, which is 112 UCAS Tariff Points under the new tariff system and equivalent to BBC at A Level.
