    If you want to get to a top uni, they won't care about UCAS points.

    I did the world challenge but didn't do this 'ASDAN' thing which apparantly gives you 70 ucas points. I did world challenge to ehtiopia for 22 days but i'm not sure how much ucas points I can get, their website is useless. Can anyone help?! Im applying to uni in 3 days and it'll make a huge difference for me!
    Google 'UCAS tariff table". The first thing that comes up is a comprehensive list of all qualifications that attract points.

    Be aware that qualifications which attract Ucas points are usually only accepted if they are relevant to the course itself. Universities which make points offers will usually specify where they want the points to come from (full A levels and sometimes AS levels are the norm) and those which make offers in grades will not count them at all.

    Most universities want most/all of your UCAS points to of come from the same 1 qualification. But you can try boosting with other qualifications.

    There are functional skills in English, Maths and IT which you can try for a boost.

    Im applying to do aerospace technology with pilot studies, world challenge can relate to the course surely? - navigational skills, survival skills/emergency response etc. were trained for and included during the expedition

    I'm sure they will regard it favourably when considering whether or not to make you an offer, but it's highly unlikely to feature as part of that offer. The kind of things that do are grade 8 music exams for people applying for music degrees and the like.

    None

    Only qualifications that have been assessed for depth and breadth by UCAS attract tariffs.
