The UCAS tariff explained

You will see that most of our courses ask for a certain number of UCAS tariff points for entry.

The UCAS tariff allows you to see if your achievements meet the qualification requirements for a particular course.

For example, a C grade at A level is (currently) equal to 80 points on the tariff. So if a course asks for 160 points as a minimum entry requirement, you'll need the equivalent of two C grades at A-level to apply.

The tariff covers A-levels, AS-levels, and BTEC qualifications, and new qualifications are being added all the time. The UCAS tariff tables show how your results translate into tariff points.

Visit UCAS Tariff to compare your qualifications.

If your qualifications aren't listed, or your points score falls a bit short, don't worry. We'll give you plenty of guidance, and offers will be made according to your individual experience.
