UCAS points
As these qualifications are included on performance tables they will gain automatic approval for UCAS points. Tariff points are usually published in May each year.

[1] Applied General qualifications are rigorous advanced (level 3) qualifications that allow 16 to 19-year-old students to develop transferable knowledge and skills. They are for students who want to continue their education through applied learning. Applied General qualifications allow entry to a range of higher education courses, either by meeting the entry requirements in their own right or being accepted alongside and adding value to other qualifications at level 3 such as A levels.
