Applying to a UK university in 2017? You need to know that the UCAS tariff system is changing!
To apply for an undergraduate degree course at a university in the United Kingdom, you apply through a system called UCAS (University College Application System). This is for both local students and international students. You fill out your personal details, nominate up to 5 degree courses to apply to at different universities and write a personal statement to support your application. For more study tips and advice on applying to universities, subscribe to our newsletter.
Once you have submitted your application, the universities will usually make you a conditional offer. This means that you have to score a certain number of points in your A levels. The way the points (tariff) is calculated is changing for 2017 entries. If you are an international student studying A levels, have a look at the picture below from UCAS.
Remember the grades you need to score haven’t changed, what has changed is the number of points you get for each grade. For more information, visit https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/getting-started/ucas-undergraduate-entry-requirements
