    Alright

    when grad schemes refer to UCAS points, i take it they refer to the points gained from A-Level / Scottish Higher qualifications.

    I saw a few grad schemes wanting a 2:1 degree plus 320 UCAS points!

    considering i got 3 C's in Scottish Highers, (48 points each), i've got no chance in even applying for such schemes as they all want over 200 points!

    do any of my degree modules count towards UCAS points|

    No; what you are seeing is that many companies use a filters to eliminate candidates they consider unsuitable - in your example, those that don't have an unbroken record of success (at the ABB and 2:1 level) since A levels started.

    I dont get what u mean sorry

    Basically, If a job requires a minimum 2:1 degree AND 300 UCAS points, then do I meet the criteria if i did obtain a 2:1 degree and also have 3 Scottish Highers at Grade C = 144 UCAS POINTS?

    Obviously not. If the company only wants to recruit people with those minimum qualifications it won't be interested in you. You don't get UCAS points for a degree.
