Signature Level 3 qualifications qualify as points on the UCAS Tariff Calculator.
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.

Signature’s Level 3 qualifications are the only ones of their kind to be recognised by UCAS. Level 3 qualifications with similar titles from other awarding bodies are not recognised.
Signature’s current Level 3 qualifications can be converted to UCAS Tariff points. See the table on this page to find out how many points each qualification is worth.
You can use the UCAS Tariff Calculator to check the value of non-Signature qualifications. Currently, our Level 3 qualifications in British Sign Language, Irish Sign Language and Communication Support for Deaf Learners are worth 16 points, the same as an AS level at grade B.
