UCAS have recently changed their tariff points for university entry from 2017. Please see the new points system below.
UCAS tariff points are awarded to students attaining LCM Advanced Level music qualifications (grades 6, 7 and 8), in both practical and theory subjects.
For Higher Education music courses, practical music grades have always been an important factor in the application process. With the introduction of these qualifications to the UCAS tariff, the values of music education are recognised across all subject areas. Admissions staff often look favourably on students with practical music exam qualifications, as they indicate motivation, self-discipline and organisational skills.
