How are T Levels graded?

Students who successfully complete a T Level will be awarded an overall grade of Pass, Merit, Distinction, or Distinction*, and receive a nationally recognised certificate.

To achieve one of the above grades, students must complete their technical qualification (comprised of a ‘core’ component and one or more ‘occupational specialism’ components) and work placement, and meet the minimum requirements for English and mathematics (if they have not done so already).

Is a T Level worth the same number of UCAS points as an A Level?

One T Level is equivalent to three A Levels and is worth the same number of UCAS Tariff points overall.

For example, if a student achieves a Distinction* in their T Level, it is equivalent to achieving three A*s at A Level. The T Level and the three A Levels are both worth 168 UCAS Tariff points.
