The new UCAS Tariff will be used for courses starting from September 2017. The new UCAS Tariff points apply to learners who are currently in Year 11 or younger who are thinking about applying in 2016/17, and start university or college from September 2017.
New UCAS Tariff points should not have any impact on students’ decisions on qualification choices at school or college, or their preparation for Higher Education. The change to new UCAS Tariff points will not in itself change entry requirements for university or college courses. Universities and colleges are autonomous organisations and each year they decide how to set their entry requirements. Those universities and colleges that use UCAS Tariff points to express their entry requirements will simply set their requirements using the new number system.
If you wish to gain further understanding about the new tariff, keep checking UCAS for information and dates of their free in-depth webinar sessions, in which they will:
