Answered on

T levels are designed primarily to prepare students for skilled employment. T levels will also be open to all students that have the prerequisite knowledge and skills to go to university to do relevant technical degrees. To reflect their size and complexity, T levels will receive UCAS tariff points in line with the points awarded for three A levels. We are working with UCAS to agree the specific points for each T level grade and plan to confirm the allocation of points to grades in 2019.
