ANNEX A: UNIFIED POINTS SCORE SCALE

The Unified Points Score Scale is an extended version of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service ( UCAS) Scottish Tariff points system. A full list of courses, awards and corresponding tariff points is listed below. The tariff score of a pupil is calculated by simply adding together all the tariff points accumulated from all the different course levels and awards he/she attains.

The relativities between types of certification are taken from the principle that the value of an A award at one level is as close as possible to, but lower than, the value of a C award at the next level above.
