Signature qualifications and the UCAS Tariff
The Tariff Calculator is a system used to allocate a set amount of points to different qualifications by UCAS . It uses points as entry requirements to higher education courses across the UK, and therefore gives universities and course providers a simple way to compare applicants.
This means that our current Level 3 qualifications now officially count towards the entry requirements of more than 500,000 university degrees and higher education courses in the UK.
