    Wow. I'm quite possibly going to end up with a UCAS tariff score of over 1000.

    It's possible. I know one of my friends got more than 300. I've seen some entrance requirements almost up to 400 points. :eek:

    The UCAS calculator is a bit rubbish unfortunately! According to that calculator, I too have a ridiculously high score, but when universities specify offers based on points they usually specify "from X, Y and Z qualifications" (e.g. assuming you're doing the Scottish qualifications, 300 points from AHs in Maths, Physics and Chemistry or something). Kinda fun though to see how many points you get from the pointless "qualifications" like core skills and stuff though!

    Yeah. The fact that they count our standard grades probably shoves in another 300 or so points.
