What are UCAS points?
UCAS points are allocated to level 3/SCQF Level 6 qualifications. This group of qualifications are often called 'A-level equivalent' study. Many universities use UCAS points in their entry requirements for Undergraduate programmes. An enormous range of qualifications are included in the UCAS tariff points tables, such as A-levels, BTEC National Diplomas, Scottish Highers, International Baccalaureate, Access to HE programmes and the new T-levels.
More information about the range of 'A-level equivalent' qualifications, UCAS points and how to calculate them can be found at UCAS.
Of course, the University of Bolton is happy to consider your application if your qualifications are not listed in the UCAS points tariff. If you are not sure if your qualifications are 'A-level equivalent' or would like to speak to someone about your application, please get in touch with the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01204 903 394.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
