Are you currently waiting upon your A Level results and refreshing UCAS every hour?
If so, it might be worth reading this article for an insight into the easiest universities to get into in the UK.
Firstly, let’s run through the whole application process.
Universities, as I’m sure you are aware, work using a conditional offer process based off your predicted grades.
Once an offer is made, you are guaranteed your place providing you meet the UCAS points that the university require.
UCAS points are as follows:
- A* grade – 56 UCAS points
- A grade – 48 UCAS points
- B grade – 40 UCAS points
- C grade – 32 UCAS points
- D grade – 24 UCAS points
- E grade – 16 UCAS points
So, based off numbers and data, the ‘easiest’ universities to get into are the institutions that require the lowest UCAS points and you guessed it, the hardest universities to get into are the ones that require the highest.
It’s important to not become too sidetracked by numbers alone however, many universities pride themselves in their interview process, stating that it plays a key role in their final choice, so it is important to not think too heavily on numbers, yet, they are important as they get you your initial offer.
