UCAS points for ISTD qualifications

It’s helpful to know that ISTD students can now receive UCAS points for ISTD Level 3 Graded and Vocational Graded qualifications.

This applies to the following ISTD examinations:

♦ Grade 6 accredited on the National Qualifications Framework between August 2001 and August 2010;

♦ Grade 6 regulated on the Qualifications and Credit Framework from 1st September 2010;

♦ Intermediate regulated on the Qualifications and Credit Framework from 1st September 2010.

If any ISTD student has taken their Grade 6 and/or Intermediate  at the times specified above, they can receive the following UCAS points. The number of points they can get depends on how well they did in their examination (i.e. Distinction, Merit or Pass).

Grade 6         Tariff Points  Intermediate  Tariff Points 
Distinction 40 Distinction 65
Merit 35 Merit 50
Pass 30 Pass 40

When completing the online UCAS online application form, it would appear that there are multiple sections that need to be completed:

♦Selecting the subject (Dance) and then specifying the genre (e.g. Imperial Classical Ballet)

♦Inputting the qualification date as stated on the certificate

♦Selecting the awarding organisation – the ISTD should appear on this list;

♦Selecting the grade (Distinction, Merit or Pass).
