Leeds is the 18th hardest uni to get into in the UK

18th out of 56 isn’t bad

Figures compiled by HESA for The Times’ Good Uni Guide show the hardest universities to get into. According to UCAS, an A* is worth 140, an A 120, a B 100, a C 80 and a D 60 at A-level. At AS-level, an A is worth 60, a B 50, a C 40 and a D 30.

Leeds expects 436, which averages at about three A’s at A-level. Unsurprisingly, Cambridge and Oxford demand the highest at 600 and 577 respectively, while Nottingham Trent and Aberystwyth ask for the least at 306 and 299.

Surprisingly, York only asks for 431 points, while Manchester requires 439.
