    :confused: I looked up my school on the league table on the telegraph website and the 'Average A level point score per student' was over 600 with some schools over 1000? How does this work. Is this different to UCAS points. Am I missing something?:confused: Isn't 3 A's at A Level on 360 points?

    They use a different point system, i.e.

    270 - A
    240 - B
    210 - C
