T Level qualifications will be worth the equivalent UCAS points to three A Levels.
T Levels are two-year technical qualifications which include a work placement and will be implemented from September 2020.
The government has confirmed one T Level programme will be equivalent to three A levels and UCAS points will be allocated to the overall grade.
The overall grade for T Levels will be shown as:
- Distinction* which is the equivalent to 3 A*s at A level
- Distinction which is the equivalent to 3 As at A level
- Merit which is the equivalent to 3 Bs at A level
- Pass which is the equivalent to 3 Cs at A level
- Pass which is the equivalent to 3 D or Es at A level
Overall grades will be worked out from the grades students achieve on the core component and the occupational specialism of a T Level programme.
T Levels provide a technical alternative to A levels. They have been designed with employers, to give 16 to 18-year-olds the skills which industries are looking for. They will be taught full time in colleges and include an industry placement for a minimum of 45 days.
Employers at our recent T Level workshops, voiced their support for UCAS points to directly align with points for A levels.
