UCAS Mythbusters & top Tips

  • HOW MANY CHOICES CAN I ADD?

    There’s space for five choices, but you don’t have to use them all up – you can apply for just one if you know exactly where you want to go, or two, three or four if you want. You can add more later (up to max five choices) depending on your status.

  • WRITING A PERSONAL STATEMENT?

    We have plenty of tips on our website which will help you to write your personal statement. Go to the personal statement section of ucas.com for advice on what to include, where to start, and check out the 'How-to' video guide.

  • HOW DO I FIND THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR A COURSE?

    Each university or college has different entry requirements for their courses - you can find details of these in Course Search. Click on the course title to see the profile for a course. Then, click on Entry Requirements to see what the university or college is looking for.

  • HOW DO I ENTER MY QUALIFICATIONS?

    You'll need to add details of all of the schools, colleges and universities that you've attended, then click on the 'add qualification' link. Then, make sure you enter all of the qualifications that you've taken or are currently taking. Watch our video guide on entering qualifications on UCAStv.

  • WHICH UNIVERSITIES OFFER THE COURSE I'M INTERESTED IN?

    Use the new Search tool on our website to look for universities and colleges that offer the course that you’re interested in. You can search for courses by title, provider or location.

  • WHAT IS THE UCAS TARIFF AND HOW DO I WORK OUT MY UCAS POINTS?

    The UCAS Tariff is a points system used to report achievement for entry to higher education. It shows how different types of qualifications compare and provides comparisons between applicants with different types and volumes of achievement. Check out our website for more details.
