    Are the CAT points achieved when you get a certificate of higher education worth anything as UCAS points?

    UCAS tariff points only apply to level 3 qualifications (A levels and equivalent).

    University credits will generally be level 4, 5 or 6 (or 7 for postgrad study). They therefore don't attract tariff points but that doesn't mean they aren't suitable for university entry - and they should be listed in any UCAS application as they're formal qualifications.

    A CertHE is a level up from tariff points - like AS and A levels are a level up from GCSE.
