1 The new UCAS Tariff – for entry into higher education from September 2017 onwards PowerPoint Toolkit for HEPs September 2014

2 The purpose of this pack
This slide deck provides information about the new UCAS Tariff, which is for the 2017 admissions cycle. It is aimed at admissions teams in higher education providers (HEPs) to use with colleagues in planning, marketing, and communications functions and/or with faculty and academic personnel to explain why, how and when the Tariff is changing and what actions need to be taken to ensure there is a smooth transition to the new Tariff. The pack covers: a high level summary why the Tariff is changing how the new Tariff point system works preparing for transition the high level timeline and switchover date resources and support from UCAS These slides can be adapted, supplemented or revised as appropriate to suit the audience. Some notes are provided in the notes view of the slide pack to provide some additional information. The notes should be deleted before the pack is circulated. We will update this pack periodically based on feedback from HEPs. Feedback should be send to

4 11/04/2017 1. Summary

5 11/04/2017 1. High level summary UCAS is introducing a new Tariff for the 2017 admissions cycle i.e. for courses starting from September 2017 for the academic year. The new Tariff addresses many of the shortcomings of the current model and enables international qualifications to be included. The new Tariff is based on a significantly different number system to the current Tariff. The new Tariff will be used for reporting qualifications held on entry to HE to HESA for the Student Records onwards. This will apply to students starting courses from September 2017 and the HESA data collection which closes in the October of 2018. Where applicable, entry requirements, offer libraries and associated material for entry in will need to be updated. Associated systems, processes and guidance material will also need to be reviewed and revised. This slide highlights the key points to note in relation to the new Tariff. Bullet 3 – you may also want to flag that one key qualification that has been repositioned under the new Tariff is the AS qualification - this is covered later in the pack.

6 2. Why the Tariff is changing
11/04/2017 2. Why the Tariff is changing

7 2. Why the Tariff is changing
11/04/2017 2. Why the Tariff is changing UCAS completed a UK-wide Qualifications Information Review in 2012, consulting with HEPs, teachers and advisers, applicants and other education specialists. A number of concerns were raised with the current Tariff: many qualifications cannot be accommodated on the current Tariff as the Tariff domains are not suited to vocational qualifications the process is awarding organisation led as they pay for qualifications to be added the process is expensive to administer it is complex and unclear exactly how points are allocated qualifications in terms of size and difficulty. There are also concerns with the points allocated to some large qualifications it cannot easily accommodate international qualifications it is not aligned with the UK qualification regulatory process. Outcome: The review found that HEPs wanted more information regarding qualifications and that there were issues with the current Tariff that needed to be resolved. As a result the UCAS Board agreed to develop a new simple Tariff and support the development of qualification information profiles (QIPs) to provide clear and consistent information on different qualifications to support admissions staff.

8 3. How the new Tariff works
11/04/2017 3. How the new Tariff works

9 3.1 How the new Tariff works – design principles
11/04/2017 3.1 How the new Tariff works – design principles The new Tariff has been developed and tested in partnership with HEPs, teachers and teaching representative bodies such as ASCL, SPA, AoC and HELOA. The new Tariff is based on the following design principles: Transparency Clear process for allocating Tariff points Meets the needs of the HE sector Supports HEPs that use the Tariff for management information purposes and admissions purposes Cost effective Lower cost than the current process and no charge to awarding organisations Comprehensive Has the scope to accommodate all UK regulated Level 3 /SCQF Level 6 qualifications Sustainable Robust enough to cope with qualifications reforms across the UK and last for a minimum of ten years Flexible Sufficiently flexible to cope with the widest range of qualifications and accommodate future changes to them Support fairness Fair to the greatest number of applicants across the UK and supports the widening participation agenda

10 3.2 How the new Tariff works – new Tariff method
11/04/2017 3.2 How the new Tariff works – new Tariff method size points x grade points = Tariff points The new total Tariff points will appear in the same type of Tariff Tables as the current Tariff. This means that students, teachers and advisers will focus on the new Total Tariff numbers as detailed in the new UCAS Tariff Tables shown on slide 11, they will not need to understand or see the detailed calculations. Size bands - qualifications will be allocated a size band of 1 to 4 with a points range of 1-4, based on their guided learning hours/notional learning hours Grade bands – qualifications will also be allocated a grade band. The new Tariff has 12 grade bands with a points range of These grade bands spread across the breadth of Level 3/SCQF Level 6 New Tariff points are determined by multiplying size and grade points

11 3.3 How the new Tariff works – size bands
11/04/2017 3.3 How the new Tariff works – size bands Four size bands ensures that existing size relationships between qualifications are maintained whilst not over-emphasising the importance of size. The AS remains half the size of an A level and is size band 2. Scottish Highers are allocated to a size band in between AS and A level. Scottish Advanced Higher, A levels, IBHL, Pre-U Principal Subjects are in the same size band, size band 4. Welsh Baccalaureate is being revised for programmes of study starting in The new qualification is expected to be of equivalent size to an A level and would therefore be allocated to size band 4.

12 3.4 How the new Tariff works - size band examples

13 3.5 How the new Tariff works – grade band examples
11/04/2017 3.5 How the new Tariff works – grade band examples A finite grade scale has been established for Level 3/SCQF Level 6 qualifications providing 12 grade bands that all qualifications can be mapped to. Grade Points A level AS (New Tariff) Scottish Highers Scottish Adv Highers 14 A* A 13 12 B 11 10 C 9 8 D 7 6 5 4 E 3 The new Tariff uses a 3-14 point scale – 12 grade bands Scale starts at 3 points as 1 point does not provide a sufficient multiplier effect for lower grades The scale ensures that key UK benchmark qualifications such as Scottish Highers can be precisely positioned in agreement with UK qualification regulators The scale is finite – for example, qualification grades operating significantly above A* at A level are considered Level 4

14 3.6 How the new Tariff works – in comparison with the current Tariff
11/04/2017 3.6 How the new Tariff works – in comparison with the current Tariff The new Tariff numbers are very different. For example, the illustration below taken from the new Tariff tables shows that the new total Tariff points for an A level A* grade = 56 points; under the current Tariff the A level A* grade is allocated 140 points. The new UCAS Tariff tables show the total Tariff points for all qualifications on the Tariff list. This slide shows the total Tariff points for A level grades. This is how each qualification’s points are set out in the new Tariff tables document. The total Tariff points are based on the size points multiplied by grade points calculation shown on earlier slides. The appropriate size and grade points appear under each table in the new Tariff Tables document for information.

15 3.7 How the new Tariff works – repositioning of AS
11/04/2017 3.7 How the new Tariff works – repositioning of AS Under the new Tariff, the AS qualification has been adjusted to circa 40% of an A level at each grade to reflect the Ofqual statement – ‘the material studied in AS is less demanding than an A level’. The Welsh Government has confirmed the new Welsh AS qualification which will remain coupled with the A level, will be positioned at 40% of the A level. DENI in Northern Ireland has made the same proposal in a recent ministerial submission. You may want to highlight to colleagues the new Tariff development work involves regular meetings with UK qualifcation regulators and education government departments across the UK. All parties have confirmed support for this change on the basis that the AS is not as demanding as an A level. Many HEPs fed back during the QIR that the AS point allocation is over generous under the current Tariff. Ofqual consultation exercises referenced in the Technical Briefing document, showed that the majority of stakeholders that fed back on the AS commented that 40% of an A level was appropriate.

16 3.8 How the new Tariff works - example student profiles
11/04/2017 3.8 How the new Tariff works - example student profiles UCAS completed significant modelling of the new Tariff points on different types of learners using UCAS candidate data to ensure no learner was disadvantaged. The next slide provides examples of how different learner qualification profiles are affected by the new Tariff. It is based on a comparison against A grade at A level. For example Ben is compared to Dipak to show that Scottish Highers differed to an A level programme under the current Tariff by +11.1% and under the new Tariff that increases to +14.6%. In summary, it shows: the impact of repositioning the AS qualification to 40% of an A level; the positive impact of repositioning Scottish Highers in between the A level and AS qualifications as requested by the Scottish qualification regulator and some impact to the IB Diploma depending on different grade combinations. There is no impact on BTEC learners or A level learners as the Tariff points for these qualifications have not changed. The next two slides are quite technical but could be useful to reassure colleagues that the impact of the new UCAS Tariff was modelled on different types of learners across the UK using UCAS candidate data.

17 3.9 How the new Tariff works - example student profiles
11/04/2017 3.9 How the new Tariff works - example student profiles This slide demonstrates the difference between the new and current Tariff using A level A grade as a benchmark. Standard size programmes (approx 1080 hours) Large programmes ( hours) HIGH RANGE DIPAK A level AAA BEN SQA Highers AAAAA  SUSAN AS AA + A level BA DAVID BTEC Nationals DDD ARMIN Pre-U PS D3D3 +GPR D3 SOPHIE A level+ A*AAA + A at AS +A at EPQ MARIE IB HL766+ SL666 +C2 (39 IB pts) Current 100% +11.1 0.0 +7.2 -2.1 New +14.6 -5.6 +8.3 -1.6 MID-RANGE JAMES BCC JACK BBCCC LEO AS BA+ A level CD MILLY Nationals DMM TRACY PS M3M3 +GPR M3 ROBIN BBCC +C at AS +C at EPQ PAULO HL655+ SL555 +C1 (34 IB pts)  +7.7 +11.5 -0.8 -0.2 +12.5 -11.5 +3.8 -2.3 LOWER RANGE ALEX DEE JOHN CCC JOEL AS CD+ A level EE MAX Nationals PPP JULIA PS P3P3 + GPR P3 NA +7.1 -14.3 -4.3 -3.6 In this example the A level A grade is taken as the consistent benchmark to compare different learner profiles. So Dipak, James and Alex are shown as 100% at each attainment range. The slide shows that Ben who has completed five Scottish Highers had 11.1% more Tariff points than Dipak under the current Tariff which will increase to 14.6% under the new Tariff because the Scottish Highers have been repositioned at grade points between A level and AS. This repositioning was agreed with UK qualification regulators. In contrast, Susan now has 5.6% fewer Tariff points under the new Tariff because the AS has been repositioned. Whilst the Pre U examples on this slide show positive change, the Short Course has not been included. The Pre U Short Course is aligned to the AS (as per the awarding organisation qualification specification), therefore the Short Course has also been repositioned. There are slightly different impacts at different grade points for different qualifications, but overall, the UCAS candidate data and the HESA data analysis showed the impact to be minor. See slide 16 for more information. The Technical Briefing document provides more detail on pages

18 3.10 How the new Tariff works – key points to note
11/04/2017 How the new Tariff works – key points to note The new Tariff is based on a different scale and the approach for calculating points is based purely on the new size by grade band calculation. We have produced a new UCAS Tariff tables document which lists qualifications covered by the Tariff together with their new Tariff point values. The separate Qualifications List explains decisions on size and grade bands and shows all calculations. As a general principle we have sought to maintain established relationships between benchmark qualifications. Both documents are available on the UCAS website https://www.ucas.com/members-providers/qualifications/new-ucas- tariff. The Tariff Tables and Qualifications List will be updated annually, each time the new Tariff is updated with new qualifications. Similarly, if a qualification’s Tariff points change, because for example its size changes, this will be made clear in the annual update. Only qualification changes that go through the qualification regulatory process would result in a change to Tariff points and they would require sufficient lead in time for schools and colleges. UCAS will provide as much notice as possible of change in the annual updates. Appendix A shows the current and new Tariff points for grade combinations for a range of qualifications for illustrative purposes. UCAS also plans to develop a new UCAS Tariff calculator for HEPs, see slide 21. The Qualifications List is a technical document, available in Excel spreadsheet form so that HEP Planning Teams can use the data to run it on HEP management information systems. The new Tariff process has been developed in discussion with the NQIS Project Advisory Group, the Tariff Advisory Group, awarding organisations, government departments and UK qualification regulators. It will be discussed at ARC APG in November and at the UCAS ARM conference with the aim of publishing the new process in December 2014.

19 4. Preparing for transition
11/04/2017 4. Preparing for transition

20 4.1 Preparing for transition – statutory reporting to HESA
11/04/2017 4.1 Preparing for transition – statutory reporting to HESA The new Tariff will be used for reporting qualifications held on entry to HE to HESA for the Student Record onwards. This will apply to students starting courses from September 2017 and the HESA data collection which closes in the autumn of 2018. HESA will support HEPs during the introduction of the new Tariff by publishing Tariff point data using both current and new Tariff points for the 2016/2017, 2017/18 and 2018/19 Student Record collections. HESA will communicate directly with its own HEP contacts about the changes nearer the time. University League Tables: it is not possible model the impact of the new Tariff on university league tables as “qualifications held on entry” are only one component, and typically contribute approximately 10-15% to the most popular league tables. However, HESA modelling suggests that, if league tables were based on solely on average Tariff points held on entry, the majority of HEPs would see their relative ranking altered by no more than two places as a result of the introduction of the new Tariff. Further information is provided in the technical briefing document at: Appendix B (page 24) in the Technical Briefing document published to support the new Tariff Feedback Exercise shows the outcomes of UCAS testing and modelling of the new Tariff. Whilst it is not feasible to model the impact of the new Tariff on national league table rankings table 5 and table 6 on pages 28 and 29 show the impact of the new points. Table 6 shows that once Scottish institutions are removed from the modelling, only one institution moves more than five places. Movement is the result of the repositioning of the AS and Scottish Highers and Scottish Advanced Highers. Note that by the time the new Tariff is introduced, some of the major qualification reforms will have started to come through, ie some new A levels will be first awarded in summer 2017.

21 4.2 Preparing for transition – supporting the admissions process
11/04/2017 4.2 Preparing for transition – supporting the admissions process HEPs who use the Tariff to support their admissions activities will need to review and update entry requirements, offer libraries and associated material for entry from September The Tariff Tables document which lists qualifications covered by the Tariff together with their new Tariff point values can be used to review entry requirements. The Separate Qualifications List explains why decisions have been taken about size and grade bandings. It is a spreadsheet and therefore it can be used from a technical perspective to model any revisions to entry requirements. Both documents are available on the UCAS website https://www.ucas.com/members-providers/qualifications/new-ucas- tariff. UCAS will provide a simple UCAS Tariff calculator to help HEPs calculate the total points for different combinations of qualifications in the Tariff, at different grades. UCAS will pilot the calculator with HEPs. HEPs that have their own publicly available Tariff calculators can use the Qualifications List to update their calculators and select or delete qualifications they do or do not use in their entry requirements and offer making strategies. UCAS is working with organisations such as AoC, HESA, HESPA, HELOA and SPA to ensure that all opportunities and events to provide support for HEPs are maximised.

22 4.3 Preparing for transition – supporting schools and colleges
11/04/2017 4.3 Preparing for transition – supporting schools and colleges Schools and colleges will update their information and advice for students choosing their Level 3/SCQF Level 6 qualifications, who may go on to apply for HE courses starting from September 2017. UCAS has provided downloadable factsheets for teachers and advisers to use with students, parents/carers and staff to explain the new Tariff. A PowerPoint pack is also available for teachers to use in their institutions. A video for students about the new Tariff will be released on ucas.com in January 2015. UCAS will also provide training on the new Tariff for teachers and advisers through its Professional Development Team. Updates and workshop sessions will also be provided throughout the year at UCAS Teachers and Advisers conferences.

23 5. Implementation and switchover date
11/04/2017 5. Implementation and switchover date

24 5.1 Implementation and switchover date
The feedback exercise on the new Tariff showed that there was strong support amongst teachers and HEPs to introduce the new Tariff for the 2017 admissions cycle. This is because it will be the first year that students who are studying new A levels and other reformed qualifications will be applying to HE. The next slide shows the qualification reforms timeline in detail. Implementation for the 2017 admissions cycle ensures all students have at least one year’s notice of Tariff points changing in advance of any two year qualification study programme commencing in September 2015.

25 11/04/2017

26 5.2 Implementation and switchover date – key milestones
The key milestones in the implementation timetable are: the new Tariff points are published in September 2014 and communicated to all UK secondary schools, colleges and HEPs the new Tariff will be implemented from September 2017 implementation from the September 2017 admissions cycle involves a new Tariff switchover date of September 2016 for Apply – HEP communication materials such as prospectuses will need to be updated before this if references are made to the Tariff UCAS has produced a detailed implementation plan which is available on ucas.com. A screen shot of the plan is provided overleaf. There is also a one page high level plan showing key milestones for the next four years. This is at slide 28.

30 6.1 Resources The new UCAS Tariff Tables are available on ucas.com. The contents have been organised to list UK benchmark qualifications first, then other qualifications in alphabetical order, followed by international qualifications and legacy qualifications. There are other information tools available on ucas.com such as factsheets for teachers to use with parents/carers, applicants and staff, plus the detailed implementation plan. A video for applicants will be available in January 2014.

31 6.2 Resources – the Tariff Tables
The Tariff Tables show the new Tariff points, plus the awarding organisations that offer the qualification. The size and grade bands are also shown. These bands determine the total points. The full calculation for each qualification is shown in the Qualifications List which is a technical document primarily aimed at HEPs.

33 7. Key factors to consider
11/04/2017 7. Key factors to consider

34 7. Key factors to consider – possible questions for your organisation
1. How will you support other teams in your organisation, such as academic, planning, registry, student records, marketing and communications and faculty teams as well as your Senior Leadership Team, understand the changes? 2. If you use the Tariff in your entry requirements and offer making strategies, how will the new Tariff affect your admissions policy? Is your marketing and communications team prepared to update course marketing material in line with your new entry requirements? 3. What questions do you think your outreach teams will get from teachers, advisers and applicants? 4. Is your Planning Team prepared to manage the change to the new Tariff? For example have they thought through implications for the 2017/18 HESA data returns? 5. How are you going to lead the change within your organisation and monitor progress? What are the immediate next steps? 6. What additional support do you need from UCAS?
