I have a query about UCAS Points equivalence. According to the website (*clicky*
an A* is worth 140 tariff points, an A is 120 and a B 100. So, for a course that requires AAB, you basically need 340 tariff points. Cool.
Now, let's look at the figures for IB. A course I applied to with an average offer of AAB requires between 36 and 38 IB points. This is, according to the table, 523 - 567 tariff points. How exactly does that work?

Very simply, the universities do not necessarily buy in to the way UCAS values IB achievements.
