How do T Levels work with UCAS points?
To support progression to higher education, UCAS have confirmed the tariff for T Levels. The tariff is based on an alignment of the standards of attainment for T Levels with the standards of attainment for other level 3 qualifications, including A levels.
UCAS points will be allocated to the overall T Level grade and not to separate components of the programme.
T Levels will receive points in line with 3 A levels, such that the highest overall T Level grade (Distinction*) will be awarded the same number of points as 3 A*s at A level (168 UCAS points). An overall T Level Pass grade will be awarded at least 72 UCAS points, in line with 3 Ds at A level.
The Tariff points allocated for each overall grade are as follows:
|UCAS Tariff points||T Level overall grade|
Pass (C or above on the core)
Pass (D or E on the core)
