Which Rockschool Exams carry UCAS Points?
See the table below for the UCAS points awarded for a given Grade Exam grade and mark:
|Grade 6||6 points||10 points||12 points|
|Grade 7||12 points||14 points||16 points|
|Grade 8||18 points||24 points||30 points|
Where a candidate has taken more than one exam in one instrument, they can only put forward the exam which gave them the highest number of points. However, where points are awarded for graded exams in different instruments, these can be accumulated, but it would be the decision of the university or college whether or not they choose to accept both sets of points.
See the table below for the UCAS points awarded for a given Music Theory grade and mark:
|Grade 6||4 points||5 points||6 points|
|Grade 7||6 points||7 points||8 points|
|Grade 8||8 points||9 points||10 points|
