How Tough Are The Entry Requirements in 2019 at Lancaster University?

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 2019 league table can give you an idea of which institutions need which results. Lancaster University is ranked 8th in the UK at the moment, with entry requirements much lower than competing universities, something to keep in mind!

The entry requirements are measured in UCAS points. While A-levels will make up the majority of an applicant’s UCAS points in most cases, there are other ways to boost your score. BTECs, music exams and diplomas are among 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 - and student home - you'll love.

1) Cambridge - 226

Top of the board for the eighth consecutive year, Cambridge has only ever ranked first or second in the UK University League Tables since their inception. The university was founded in 1209 and is less than an hour away from London by train. If you apply to Cambridge expect to be asked to submit written work or sit a test, and be prepared as the university interviews the majority of its undergraduate applicants.
