    I know that OCR FSMQ Add Maths has UCAS points. Does IGCSE add maths have ucas points?

    It's not hugely useful to determine because so few universities use the tariff system, but as they don't have IGCSEs listed separately from GCSEs I would presume they are treated identically (particularly as CIE and OCR are two branches of the same organisation, Cambridge Assessment).

    If it seems to be something that a university offer will likely rely on, then the best advice would be to contact UCAS directly to ask them. However I'm quite confident it is considered equally, provided the syllabus is broadly the same - this being the main falling point, as the OCR version will comply with UK legislation whereas the CIE version need not do, necessarily.

    IGCSEs are Level 2 qualification and so do not have UCAS points.
