Share your views on allocating tariff points to level 3 apprenticeships

The UCAS consultation on allocating tariff points to Level 3 apprenticeships will be closing on Thursday 20 June. Have your say.

13 June 2024

The first UCAS Tariff was introduced in 2001, initially for a narrow range of qualifications such as A Levels and SQA (Scottish Qualification Authority) Highers to enter higher education. Over time, the range of qualifications that attracted UCAS Tariff points expanded. 

In March 2023, UCAS began a project to allocate UCAS Tariff points to UK Level 3 (and SCQF Level 6) apprenticeships. Following stakeholder engagement, UCAS has developed a model for allocating Tariff points to apprenticeships. It is now seeking the views of the wider sector on this model. 

The proposal is that a two year Level 3 apprenticeship will align with a T Level pass grade or three C grades at A Level, equating to 96 UCAS Tariff points.

The UCAS public engagement document provides full detail on how this model will work.
