Surely a B=100pts so by having 2 you now have at least 200pts?

It depends, have you finished your course yet or could you bring it upto the required amount? You could always ring the admissions tutor for the uni(s) you want to applying to and ask them.

If you do have 200 points like Jump says, try doing a 'Key Skills' exam - lots of unis accept them as tarrif points (I think they're worth 20) and they're quite easy, especially ICT if you have a basic knowledge of computers.

If you've done English, do Communication Key Skills because you don't even have to do the exam then
