How do we use the UCAS Tariff?

  • From 2017 we will be making grade-based offers to applicants. So, if a course requires certain grades – for example, BBB from three A-levels – we’ll accept other grade combinations that equal the same number of Tariff points. To provide another example, grades ABC or AAD still equate to 120 UCAS Tariff points.

  • If you are undertaking a combination of A-levels and other level 3 equivalent qualifications, we will use the Tariff points calculator to convert your qualifications and grades into points. We do this in order to make a fair comparison between the different qualifications and to assess your suitability for your chosen course.

  • We welcome students who are undertaking other qualifications not considered to be equivalent to an A-level (for example, the Extended Project and AS Levels). While these will not form part of your offer, they may be considered for borderline cases once your results have been received.
