Music performance diploma - UCAS points?

I have passed my LCM singing diploma with a distinction but I can't find if you get any extra UCAS points for this or if you just get the 30 points from my grade 8. Does anyone know if doing a music performance diploma exam (with exam boards such as ABRSM or LCM) gets you any extra points on UCAS?
Even if you can identify that this attracts UCAS points, just be aware that Unis dont have to 'recognise' the qual regardless of the subject you apply for - and most will only take it into account of you are applying for a performance based course, and only if they actually make offers in UCAS points and not specific grades.
Thank you, I am applying for performance based courses. I actually already have enough UCAS points regardless but I would like to know anyway if there's a difference.

Contact each University and ask - each one may be different.

You only get points for grade 6 to 8. You can check it out for yourself here:
