so a certain grade = UCAS points. the higher the grade the more points. then you need a certain amounts of points (grade) to do the uni courseName:  CEA2D5F0-C2A4-4151-B16E-2EBAFC5C7A8E.jpg.jpeg

UCAS points are a system used to compare Various level 3 qualifications for University entry as they can have different weights. As they are for University entry, University courses do not carry UCAS Points

Hi Pandagirlx!

The chart the previous user gave gives a breakdown of UCAS points that you attain from A-Levels.

Are you currently in year 12?

UCAS points are a format to allow universities to draw comparisons between various school leaving qualifications (e.g. A-levels, BTECs, IB). Some universities express their entry criteria in UCAS points, which will be derived from these school leaving qualifications (and sometimes others). I would note however many universities do not use UCAS points in making offers, and the ones that do use them as their standard method for entry criteria are often (although not always) somewhat flexible in meeting grade requirements on results day anyway.

Generally I would not recommend aiming to "collect" as many UCAS points as possible, since the universities that do use that system will not expect you to get significantly more UCAS points than e.g. ABB-CCC grades at A-level (or equivalent results in a BTEC extended diploma) would get you, and other universities that don't use that system usually do not recognise non-school leave qualifications that "give" UCAS points (e.g. many vocational/technical qualifications such as ABRSM music exams, City & Guilds vocational qualifications etc) and so they will be of no benefit for those anyway. I would recommend selecting an appropriate school leaving qualification for your interests and aptitudes (e.g. A-levels, the IBD, BTEC level 3 extended diplomas, etc).

It is also unnecessary and not helpful to bump your post twice within 10 minutes of posting it. You should not bump a post more than once every 24 hours, and should only normally do so if it is not on the front page of the forums you posted it on - which it certainly will be for at least 10 minutes, even in very busy forums like Chat.

you need to do your own research for what your entry requirements are.

How do UCAS points and do you get them from a-levels or uni courses?
Its the qualification, on results day the final grade on your certificate dictates how many points you'll get.

Some uni will ask for grades, others will ask for points (UCAS points you can over-perform in 1 subject and then underperform in another as long as you get the right amount of points)

Most unis will ask for points or grades from your top 3 A-levels (or equivalent qualification).
