What are UCAS tariff points?

15 October 2019

UCAS points are awarded depending on the grade(s) you receive for your Level 3/SCQF Level 6 qualifications. The UCAS points system is often used by universities for their entry requirements, although some may display grades instead. You get UCAS points on the successful completion of your qualification.
