What are UCAS Tariff points?
UCAS Tariff points translate your qualifications and grades into a numerical value. Many qualifications have a UCAS Tariff value, which will vary dependent on the qualification size, and the grade you achieved.
How are UCAS Tariff points used?
Many universities in the UK use a UCAS Tariff points entry system. The number of UCAS points required will be different for different courses and different universities. Remember to look at more than one university when applying.
How do I know how many UCAS points my qualification is worth?
Visit the UCAS website to find your qualifications in their tariff tables. Alternatively, you can use their tariff point calculator.
