Entry Requirements (UCAS Tariff)

It is a points system used to report achievement for entry requirements to higher education (HE) in a numerical format. The tables establish agreed equivalencies between different types of qualifications.

How does the tariff work?

  • It is a points system used to report achievement for entry requirements to higher education (HE) in a numerical format. The tables establish agreed equivalencies between different types of qualifications. It provides comparisons between applicants with different types and volumes of achievement.
  • Points can be aggregated from the different qualifications included in the Tariff.
  • There is no ceiling to the number of points which can be accumulated.
  • There is no double counting - applicants cannot count the same or similar qualifications twice.
  • Achievement at a lower level will be subsumed into the higher level, i.e. AS points will be subsumed into the A level points for the same subject.
  • The same principle applies to Scottish Highers and Advanced Highers, VCE A levels and Double Awards, Key Skills and Music Awards at different Levels or grades.
  • All certificated Key Skills in Application of Number, Communication and IT will attract points whether achieved through proxy or not.
  • The points shown are for the BTEC National Award, Certificate and Diploma introduced into centres from September 2002.
