    Hi! I havent found any info on this on tsr, might be wrong but if it's around direct me!?

    In the next to the subject, grade and number of points you got, it states a level? (eg. level 5)

    What do the levels represent?

    and the points/credits i've gathered, are they ucas points?

    Sorry, really have no idea how to decipher anything but the actual grades!

    Cheers!

    The levels that are next to the subject are only an indication of the difficulty of the award.
    It works on a scale of level 1 to level 12 with level 1 being the easiest award to gain and level 12 being the most difficult ( I think its a doctorates ).

    The credit points are only an indication to how much work would have had to be put in to achieve the award.
    1 credit point is the equivalent of 10 hours work.

    For example I achieved an 'A' at higher computing and one of the components of the course was level - 6 and credit - 6.
    The level 6 basically means higher level and the credit 6 means it would have taken approx 60 hours to complete.

    They have no corrolation to UCAS points.
    If you want to know how much UCAS points you have achieved you can go to this site

    and then enter the levels you sat and your results obtained.
