Pre U: University entry and tariff points

Do I get more university credit if I do the whole Diploma?

The tariff for the full Cambridge Pre-U Diploma is calculated by adding together the tariff scores of the four components: three Cambridge Pre-U Principal Subjects plus Global Perspectives and Research (GPR). For example, candidates who achieve a Distinction 2 pass for the four components will score a total of 224 points (56 points per Principal subject plus 56 points for GPR (calculated according to the 2017 tariff tables)).

For more information on the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma tariff points please see the UCAS website.
