You will know your ucas tariff points by knowing your final grade i.e DMM. If you can say that then it is easy to look up the UCAS tariff equivalent. What grade you get will depend on your individual module scores. Lots of the new ones have a total of 180 credits so you do 90 in year 1 and 90 in year 2. Some subjects do not have 18 modules of ten credits but a lower amount of modules worth more credits each. I dont know what it is for Art and Design.

Once you have the final module scores and overall grade then you look up the UCAS points here.

Wait wait wait... So... If I did 2 years of my college course, does that mean I get 2 grades or is it 1? Oml... What is this about credits? Do they count also? Why wasn't I told this in college?! X.x

With extended diploma at the end of year 1 you get a grade consisting of 2 letters. This is based on all the modules you did which are also awarded a letter.
At the end of year 2 you get the final grade based on the marks from all modules during the 2 years and will consist of three letters from M to D*.
If you can tell me what that 3 letter grade is then I can tell you how many UCAS it is worth.

By 3 letter grade do you mean pass, merit and distinction?

Okay thank you very much!
Stages:

1. Look up your course and work out how many modules there are in year 1 and year 2.
2. Also id how many credits each module is worth. Typical would be 18x 10 credits, but other courses have fewer modules, but they are worth more credits i.e 20-30.
3. Once you know the scores from all modules, then you can look up how many points you get.
4. When you add the points you then compare that to a table, which shows you what final grade you get from PPP up to D*D*D*.
5. When you know this grade you then compare that with the table in the link above to show you how many ucas points.

The only thing you have said is you are doing an extended diploma in art and design plus you got some merits.

That doesnt really answer anything as I was working on the basis it was a BTEC Extended Diploma all along, because that is what you said.

No, I never said it was BTEC... It was you who first mentioned BTEC... I only said that I have 2 grades one from year 1 and another from year 2 which are both merits.

You mentioned extended diploma and pass merits and distinctions which are all signs of BTEC. In any event this thread shouldnt have lasted this long and its not wise to spend any more time on it. have fun .
