UCAS Information and Tariff Table

UCAS information

Applying for University through UCAS

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is a UK-based organisation whose main role is to operate the application process for British universities.

The UCAS tariff for courses starting in September 2017 has changed so that more qualifications could be included.

The new tariff simply uses a different set of numbers, which some universities use to describe qualifications and grades in their entry requirements.

The new Tariff points are much lower than the original Tariff points. For example, an A' Level grade A* gets 56 points under the new tariff, whereas before it got 140. The value of the A' Level remains the same, but Universities will just use lower Tariff numbers in their entry requirements than in previous years.

It is really important to check the entry requirements with the University/College for the course you're interested in.

You can find out how many points your A' Level qualification will be worth by using the UCAS tariff calculator or alternatively we have the table below.
