ISTD level 3 graded and vocationally graded exams - UCAS points

ISTD level 3 graded and vocationally graded exams - UCAS points

2 August 2011

From 2012 onwards, the level 3 will have UCAS points.

The ISTD’s Level 3 graded and vocationally graded dance examinations now have UCAS points which come into effect from 2012 entry onwards.

So, if you or one of your students is planning on applying to Higher Education for entry from 2012 onwards, follow this link to see the points you can now list on the UCAS application form.

The aims of graded dance qualifications are to provide students with:

  • an increasing ability to demonstrate practical knowledge of dance disciplines
  • a graduated measure of attainment against specific criteria
  • increasing self-confidence through the learning, memorising and performing of prescribed sequences of movement, studies and dances
  • an awareness and understanding of working with others
  • an appreciation, through practical experience, of three contrasting dance disciplines with their accompanying music. 

Look out for more information coming soon in DANCE magazine!

For more information visit the UCAS website.
