    With a calculator?

    Everything you can add should be on there.

    GCSE's don't count, but certain NVQs do, A-levels do (AS levels do, but if you have an A-level don't include the AS score), BTECs do, certain music grades (and other high level 'hobby' certificates). If it's not on there, you can't use it.

    Try using this:
    I don't think it has your NVQ qual on there though.

    You passed 2009 so am hoping for a little advise maybe ?? :-D
