An offer I just got from Leeds Met yesterday says;

This offer is subject to you obtaining
A minimum of 260 UCAS Tariff points

160 points must be obtained

from a minimum of 2 GCE A Level qualifications or equivalent (excluding General
Studies)
So does this mean I need 260 points, or that 160 is enough to get me in? I'm confused. Oh and it also says..

Please send non-GCE or VCE results to this institution
What the?

Basically your offer is 260 points but you must get 160 of these points from two full A levels (the other 100 can be from anything else or more A levels).

If you are taking a non A level exam you must send them your certificates as evidence, as they cannot find out your results for these on results day.

Hope that makes sense now

Hey!

I have limited knowledge of UCAS points, but I read it as meaning you need 260 UCAS points to get in - 160 of which need to be from two A-Levels (you can work out the points here http://www.merlinhelpsstudents.com/s...alculator.asp). It looks like you then need to get 100 extra points elsewhere - maybe extra-curricular, like music examinations - or if you're doing more then 2 A-Levels, you can pick them up there.

The non-GCE or VCE bit means that if you have another qualification that's not GCE or VCE (like BTEC, presumably), you need to send evidence of the results to the uni but if you're doing all A-Levels, you don't need to worry about that bit as UCAS will send them through automatically.

Good luck, hope that helps, and sorry if I'm completely wrong!

You need 260, but 100 of them can from AS Level, whereas the other 160 are from A Level. Ucas points for AS are half what they would be at A2. E.g a C at A level is worth 80 points I think, so it 40 at AS.

Ah right, thanks guys. So does that mean the other 100 points after the 160 can be from General Studies?

Depends if Leeds Met accept general studies. Look on their entry requirements for your course it usually says.

I just noticed my Leeds Met course is down as Public Relations (P210).

WHAT THE ****?!

I definately put down P500 Journalism for it, is it possible that they can change it? What's happened?!

On your UCAS choices bit?

Ring Leeds Met and explain and ask for it to be changed.

Rang UCAS, they said Leeds Met have probably done it because they feel I'm more suitable for that course? Can't be right really, on my personal statement/work experience I'm practically shagging Journalism.

Woman told me to ring the uni themselves and explain but nobodys picking up, will have to be tomorrow now.

God I'm worried now
