    Lol I'm so confused.

    I've got 200 UCAS points and an entry requirement for a degree I'd like to do is 180 UCAS Tariff points. Is it the same thing?

    It's pretty much the same thing.

    I'm sure. The system of certain qualifications having a numerical value is the UCAS Tariff. It's just a matter of personal preference whether the points are called UCAS points or UCAS Tariff Points.

    It's all the same.

    BTW does anyone know if you don't get the specific grade the uni asks for but your grades have the same amount of points from the uni grades if they will look at your application?
    Say I got ABC - 300 UCAS points but the uni asks for BBB - 300 UCAS points

    How much a university would consider an application like this can depend on a lot of things; there's not much of an accurate 'yes or no' answer, really.

    In the example that you have given though, you would have exceeded one part of the entry requirements but haven't met another part, so technically the entry requirements in total haven't been met. If three B grades are expected, then an applicant should at least reach all three B grades to get a good chance, so BBB would often be preferred over ABC, but this doesn't dis-count your chances entirely.
