As the table below shows there is now a big incentive for any student, whether they are studying Drama at school or not, to do a LAMDA exam. A young person can take a Grade 6 (sometimes as young as 13) and earn 12 UCAS points. By the time they do a Grade 8 they can earn nearly the equivalent of an A-Level (30 UCAS points). This table now reflects the new UCAS points tariff which uses a much lower points system than the old UCAS tariff.
