Hi, just a quick question
Theoretically, when applying to university (I'm a GCSE student so I have a few more years to go.) would grades A*AAA at A level be equivalent to A*A*A?
This is a very weird question, I know, but I'm just curious.

Thanks

It depends if they ask for points or grades.An A*= 56 points. An A=48.

It really depends on the uni but generally no. As you're only required to take 3 A levels if a uni wants A*AA or similar that is what they want. Generally a 4th A level cannot compensate for a dropped grade so AAAA usually will not count as A*AA. Every uni is different so check their admissions policies if this is the case when you're applying but there is no real point in taking 4 A levels (however I think further maths is one exception to this rule).
Hope I've helped and if you have anymore questions I'll try to answer!
