What is Centigrade?
Our app feeds your interests and academic strengths into the full UCAS database to give instant feedback on the courses that will suit you best. Use on mobile, tablet or desktop.
When should I use it & why do I need it?
If you’re 16-18 and ready to plan your next steps, Centigrade is here to help by working out which courses suit your interests, abilities and qualifications.
Whether at this point you feel highly ambitious or just very confused, take heart. Studies have shown that sixth formers who do the most research into Higher Education are the most likely to complete their courses. And this is the first step to success...
How does it work?
Centigrade asks you:
- 150 questions about what you do and don't like
- What your current academic level is
- Which courses you're taking or planning to take
When you've answered all the questions, you'll receive instant feedback on courses – both single and combined – that are likely to suit you. This may challenge your existing ideas and will also open your eyes to courses you may not have considered.
How long does it take?
Centigrade should only take you around 30 minutes, but will save you a lot of time and effort later on. You can start the questionnaire, pause it and finish it later.
What if I get exam results I didn't expect?
Centigrade is flexible, so once you get your results you can update your grades. This means if you're going through clearing, Centigrade will give you an updated set of courses based on your exam results.
The app also lets you see in advance what your options are if you do better than expected. Similarly you can find out what your options are if you don't do as well as expected.
What if I want to study outside the UK?
We're currently adding courses in Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to Centigrade, along with English-taught courses across Europe. Sign up to our newsletter or check back here for release dates.
What does it cost?
Centigrade costs £15 per user.
How long can I use it for?
Your licence lasts for four years, and while you can't go back and change your answers to the questions, you can update your qualifications during this time and will have access to the latest UCAS database. If you do want to keep your data for longer than four years, you can download a copy of your Centigrade information at any point during this time.
Centigrade costs just £15
An easy-to-use app that simplifies one of the most complex decisions you will make in your school career.
