LAMDA Exams and the UCAS Tariff


The Level 3 LAMDA Exams (Grades, 6, 7 & 8 - the bronze, silver & gold Medal Exams) are further recognized within the UCAS Tariff.

The UCAS Tariff is the system for allocating points to qualifications used for entry to higher education.

It allows students to use a range of different qualifications to help secure a place on an undergraduate course.


Universities and colleges use the UCAS Tariff to make comparisons between applicants with different qualifications.

Tariff points are often used in entry requirements (although other factors are taken into account).
