UCAS

Tariff points for entry to Higher Education courses are determined by UCAS who look at the level of demand (difficulty) and the size of qualifications at level 3 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework and decide the points value. Dance examinations that are at level 3 (are deemed equal to A level) qualify for points that may be accepted by universities and colleges. Grades 6/7/8 and Intermediate are the accepted qualifications. The tariff points currently available are listed below. Acceptance of the tariff points varies between higher education institutions.

NATD Examinations in Ballet, Modern, Tap and Contemporary Dance from April 1st 2015 may be referred to in a UCAS application. Graded Dance Qualifications:
