    I know its a bit off the subject of the thread but I have 4A's at A-levels and an A in an AS-level already, however I did not receive 6A*'s at GCSE like Queens want but 5A*'s instead. How likely do you think is an offer for me in 2006 from Queens? I also did not receive my A at AS level on the first sitting. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Las mate, Queens no longer want 6 A*'s. Theyre now asking for about one/two A stars out of 9A/A*'s. I got this off their head admissions person, who said i'd have definitly got an offer this year and would probably this year, and i only have 4A*'s.

    i thought they give u points so 4 points for an A*, 3 for an A etc and they take the top 9 GCSE's. that's what it said in a leaflet they sent me with the 2006 prospectus anyway!

    Yeah they do, but the points they now look for equate to i think one A* and eight A's. Sorry if that confused you.

    Yeah lol you get more points. What i mean is the minimum they want, ie offers to those above it, is one star and eight A's.
