We sometimes get asked about International Baccalaureates and how they convert into A levels. We also spend some time every year advising clients and candidates on what BTEC HNCs equate to for A levels. Here is a handy table for converting them all into UCAS points.
As an aside – whatever happened to all the staff at PCAS? I seem to recall filling out two lots of forms many years ago. Did they all join UCAS?
International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma
|IB Diploma points||UCAS Tariff|
A Level UCAS points
|GCE AS & AS VCE|
So 3 As at A level equate to 360 points. 3 A*s at A level equate to 420 points. An international baccalaureate score of 29 or more equates to 3 As at A level.
Is this correct? Who knows. Life was so much easier 20 years ago with just A levels to worry about…..
