Higher Education Entrance Qualification assessment
Information on admission to universities and university colleges.
We can also advise you on how to qualify if you do not meet all the entry requirements, and whether you meet specific subject requirements.
NUCAS’ assessment is not required to apply for admission
You are free to apply for admission to higher education through NUCAS, or sign up for upper secondary school classes and/or exams, without NUCAS’ Higher Education Entrance Qualification assessment.
You can ask for an assessment if our website does not provide the information you need in order to find out whether or not you are qualified for admission.
NUCAS’ assessment does not include any calculations of grade point or grade conversions.
