    You'll only get a few for Grade 8 singing, I think.

    75 for grade 8 distinction, 70 for merit, 60 for pass

    You only get ucas points for an instrument about grade 6 i think. But they cancel each other out as they go higher, so if you have grade 6,7 and 8 piano, you'd only get the points for 8.

    Most universities that use the UCAS tariff points system will dictate that the bulk of your points come from two or three A levels (often in specific subjects), so don't bank on non-related tariff points being of much use to you. Most of the top universities don't use the system anyway, and make offers in terms of A level grades.
