Some universities are harder to get into than others. But which ones ask for the highest marks? Sorted by UCAS points, the Complete University Guide's 2016 league table can give you an idea of which institutions need which results.

The entry requirements are measured in UCAS points. While A-levels will make up the majority of an applicants UCAS points in most cases, there are other ways to boost your score. BTECs, music exams and diplomas are amoung the many different qualifications which can contribute to a UCAS score. So if you're a bit short, try thinking outside of traditional exams to boost your score.

If you don't think your scores are quite at this level yet, don't fret - just keep working and you'll get there. And remember, this is just a tiny sample of higher education institutions, so if you don't get in it's really not the end of the world. Chances are you'll find another university you'll love.
