UCAS Tariff calculator
If the course you’re interested in refers to Tariff points in its entry requirements, you can use our Tariff calculator to find out how many points your qualifications and grades are allocated. Not all qualifications are on the Tariff – don’t worry if you can’t find your qualification, as a university, college, or conservatoire may still accept it. Make sure you read the guidance notes on the calculator to ensure you understand how the Tariff works.
UCAS Tariff tables

Remember, not all qualifications are on the Tariff, so don’t worry if you can’t find your qualification, as a university, college, or conservatoire may still accept it. It’s a good idea to read the guidance notes in the Tariff calculator to understand how the Tariff works.
Three key things to know about the UCAS Tariff
- The Tariff simply uses a different set of numbers, which some course providers use to describe qualifications and grades in their entry requirements. For example, only one third of university courses use the Tariff, and most use qualifications and grades.
- Just because a qualification is on the Tariff, doesn't mean a course provider will accept it. Therefore, it’s really important to check the entry requirements for the course you’re interested in.
- There are only a certain number of qualifications on the Tariff. A uni, college, or conservatoire may accept a qualification even if it isn’t on the Tariff, so it’s best to check with them to see if they will accept your qualification. Remember, lots of course providers do not use Tariff points.
