Making sense of UCAS tariff points

UCAS introduced a new tariff points system for courses starting from September 2017. Watch this video to find out how it works. 

Why do some courses have two different UCAS points requirements?

For most of our courses at Sheffield Hallam, how many points you need depends on what type of qualifications you are taking. 

For example, if you are studying A levels or a BTEC, we will ask for a certain number of points. If you want to use other, non-comparable qualifications towards your points (such as AS levels), we will ask for a different number of points.

So for example, you might need to get 96 points through A levels, but 112 points if you are including AS levels. Check your course for details.

How many points do I have?

Use the UCAS tariff calculator to find out how many points your qualifications or predicted grades are worth.
