B TEST and UCAS

“There are no UCAS points for B test or any other Pony Club tests, and there never has been.

There is mapping between the Pony Club tests and BHS qualifications as shown at http://www.pcuk.org/uploads/tests/The_Pony_Club_Tests__BHS_exams_direct_entry_summary.pdf although this may change following the revamp of the BHS exam system.  Currently the B test  candidates who have achieved the complete B Test and hold the Pony Club Lungeing Certificate or EQL Level 2 lunge a horse under supervision (a unit of the Stage 2 qualification) are eligible to apply for direct entry to BHS Stage 3 and the PTT, so potentially UCAS points are possible this way (EQL Level 3 Certificate in BHS Preliminary Teaching of Horse Riding (QCF) 2017 Tariff score: 16).”
