    This should be in the ucas forum but I'll report it.

    From grade 6-grade 8 I believe they carry about 20 points.

    If you're talking ABRSM, these are the tariffs:

    Practical (instruments and singing)
    Grade 8
    Distinction: 75 points, Merit: 70 points, Pass: 55 points

    Grade 7
    Distinction: 60 points, Merit: 55 points, Pass: 40 points

    Grade 6
    Distinction: 45 points, Merit: 40 points, Pass: 25 points

    Please note that Practical Musicianship exams do not qualify for UCAS Points.

    Grade 8
    Distinction: 30 points, Merit: 25 points, Pass: 20 points

    Grade 7
    Distinction: 20 points, Merit: 15 points, Pass: 10 points

    Grade 6
    Distinction: 15 points, Merit: 10 points, Pass: 5 points

    You can only claim for the highest grade you've got though, not all of them.
