Open University Credit Transfer

I have completed two Advanced Highers at an A grade. Does anyone know how many credits this would be on Open Uni?

According to
https://credit-transfer.open.ac.uk/my-previous-study/scottish-college-study
and
https://www.sqa.org.uk/files_ccc/NQIntroducingAdvancedHigherLeaflet.pdf

Advanced Highers are worth 32 credits at level 7, and the OU considers SCQF level 7 to match OU level 1.
Which is confirmed by
https://scqf.org.uk/about-the-framework/interactive-framework/
which lists AH at the same level as an HNC or CertHE.

Have to admit I didn't know that until now. I'd always assumed AHs were basically slightly more impressive A-levels, but looks like they're considered to be a tier above that.

So, rounding down to 30-credit multiples, you /might/ be able to transfer 60 credits. Definitely worth applying!
