What are UCAS Points?
UCAS points, also referred to as the "UCAS Tariff" are a way of ascribing approximate value to post 16 qualifications in the UK. Each qualification approved by UCAS is given a tariff score and the higher the grade you get, the more UCAS points that are awarded. Many universities base their selection criteria on how many UCAS points an applicant has. Achieving an "A" grade for an AS level typically attracts around 20 points whereas a full A Level graded at "B" scores around 40 points.
Do Anglia Exams Attract a UCAS Tariff?
We are hoping that our highest exam level (Mastery) will soon attract UCAS tariff points. Watch this space for updates!
