Changes to UCAS tariffs announced

There will be a new tariff system for university entrance for the 2017 admissions cycle.  It will therefore affect students starting 'A' level and BTEC Level 3 courses in September 2015. Students who apply 2016 and then defer their places will still be under the old tariff.  A key change is that AS levels with now be worth 40% of an 'A' level ( i.e. the "full" AS + A2 course ) and not 50%.  The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is still worth 50% of an 'A' level.

Click here for a fact-sheet from UCAS on the changes.
