    UCAS points are points you get from the grades in your A-level subjects, all uni courses have a certain amount of points that you need to get to do that course in the UNI of your choice, you can also get ucas points from extra curricular activities, DOE or playing and instrument and getting grades.

    As above, but most 'good' universities do not make offers in terms of Ucas points but in terms of grades. And points obtained from extra-curricular activities are largely irrelevant to universities.
