Always check entry requirements with the university or college in case special conditions apply.

Once you've worked out your UCAS points, you can start searching for different courses (you can also narrow down your search results using our grade filter, to make things a bit easier).


Some advice on the UCAS point / UCAS tariff system

The UCAS tariff system has been set up by UCAS to help universities and colleges set entry requirements and to make conditional offers. A minimum amount of UCAS points will be required for any course, and if your expected grades meet these requirements you may be given a conditional offer.

A conditional offer is not a guaranteed place on a course of study. Your place on your degree programme will only be confirmed once you have achieved the grades stipulated by the University.

However, having a big enough UCAS points total does not necessarily mean that you will get a place on the course. Some programmes may require you to get certain grades for specific subjects, and many universities will require students to get A or B grades in the subject they wish to study at undergrad level.

Some qualifications such as A-levels (split between AS level and A2 level) and Scottish Highers (split between Highers and Advanced Highers) are built up over different levels. You should not count the UCAS tariff points of each of these levels up, but simply count them from the highest level you have achieved.

It is also worth noting that some Universities or colleges don’t even use the UCAS points system to determine entry, but will simply specify which grades they require you to achieve.
