These are the 15 easiest universities in the UK to get into
The Complete University Guide has released its 2018 ranking of UK universities, revealing which ones are the most difficult — and the easiest — to get a spot at.
The annual report ranks the 129 UK institutions based on a number of different metrics, taking into account variables such as entry standards (using the average UCAS score of new students), student satisfaction, research quality, and graduate prospects.
In the UK, "UCAS Points" are a way of measuring the relative value of all post-16 qualifications. They are calculated by converting examination results into the following numerical scores: A*=56, A=48, B=40, C=32, D=24, and E=16.
The report's ranking of entry standards therefore offers an accurate picture of how difficult it is to get into each university across the country.
