    does anybody know where to put this qualification in ucas? it's definitely not the two key skills choices on the list.

    also, what equivalent is level 2? coz my teacher told us it's worth 0.8 GCSE, but it's under AS and Alevels on the QCDA website (http://www.qcda.gov.uk/10681.aspx)

    Thank you

    Looks like it, I'm afraid

    Best bet is to ring UCAS and ask them for clarification.

    I think a level two qualification is the equivelent to a GCSE at grades A*-C, but whether it is viewed as such in reality is a different matter. Level 1 is a GCSE at grades D-G. Level 3 is A-level, going up to postgraduate study, which is classified as level 7. Each year of undergraduate study takes you up a level. Hope this helps.
