No, they will look at all your subjects. The XXX/Y is if your Y is a H1 subject. Your GP and PW grade come under a different rating.

To calculate university points, look at this thread.

Do H3s matter at all for local uni entry? Is it included in the 90 point ranking?
The Indicative Grade Profile assumes GP and PW to both have the grade of C.

Local universities take into account all six subjects (3 H2, 3 H1; in a case of a student with 4 H2, the H2 with the worst grade will be directly converted to a H1 - i.e. a B in your 4th H2 will become a H1 B).

The subjects contribute to a University admission score.

Each H2 subject has a maximum of 20 points for an A, with a decrement of 2.5 points for each grade (i.e. A-20; B-17.5; C-15 etc.).
Each H1 subject has a maximum of 10 points for an A, with a decrement of 1.25 points for each grade (i.e. A-10, B-8.75; C-7.5 etc.)
Effectively H1 is "halve" the H2. Hence, with straight A's in all 6 subjects, one can attain the maximum of (20 + 20 + 20 + 10 + 10 + 10) 90 points.

If addition of your Mothertongue grade increases your admission points, it will be taken into consideration. Add the point equivalent of your mothertongue grade (e.g. A: 10) to your score capped at 90, and it should be out of 100 now. Then, simply do a 90% calculation of that to get back a score out of 90 again.

H3's are not taken into computation of the admission points.

I would say the Indicative Grade Profile isn't that good of an indicator for the highly competitive courses like Medicine/Law/Dentistry, but would be adequate for gauging the admission standards of other courses. This is so because the aforementioned courses (based on 2009) has an entry requirement of 87.5 admission points, which definitely isn't well represented by the AAA/A CC as indicated in the Indicative Grade Profile (the latter being 85 admission points).

Hi, just got my A lvl grades ytd.
Math(H2) - A
Econs(H2) - A
Phy(H2) - C
GP(H1) - D
Geog(H1) - A
PW(H1) - B
Chinese(H1) - S

thus, AAC/A. Would I be able to make it into Engineering Science (NUS) (62places) with their cut-off point of UAE 2009 AAB/C?

It stated "good grades" for both Math and Phy. but as you can see, my Phy is a C. Would I still have a chance to enter? thanks to any reply.

yes, you are bbb/a, but with a slight advantage given your A in mother tongue

Hi all, didn't do well in my A levels.

gp b,
pw, c
H1 econs, c
h2 maths, c
h2 physics, c
h2 computing, c

Do you think I stand a chance at Mechanical engineering at NTU which is BCC/C?

Any place else that I can go?

Thanks bros and sis for valuable advice (:

I know it isn't a good grade but please, don't mock at me...

I think you're wrong. His H2 Econs h2 is D so that will be dropped to his h1 contrasting subject NOT MT.
