All about UCAS points

Did you know that you can earn UCAS points with your LAMDA Exams?

Claim UCAS points with LAMDA Exams to assist university entry

Our Level Three Solo/Duo qualifications (that’s Grades 6 and up) are included in the UCAS Tariff. This means that if you pass those exams you can claim points to help you with university entry in the UK.

If you’ve taken exams from different syllabi, UCAS points can even be stacked to gain more points. So, as an example, points earned from an Acting exam in our Performance syllabi can be added to the points for a Reading for Performance exam from our Communication syllabi.

If you are taking multiple exams in the same syllabi, you’ll only be able to claim one set of points. So, we recommend you pick the one that gives you the most UCAS points when you make your claim.

Performance is: Acting, Devising Drama and Miming
