    I need 128 UCAS points to get into my firm uni choice.

    I did media at AS and got a B (16 points) but I heard that any points received for media don't count if you drop it in the second year. Is this true?

    Cheers

    Which uni is this for and which course? If you've achieved the grade you will get points for it if it is considered by the uni as part of the entry requirements.

    I was told that Media AS doesn't count if you drop it at AS and don't take it up in the second year.

    If it’s modular and you don’t have an actual qualification it won’t count but if you’ve done exams and actually got a qualification it will.
