Welcome to Issue 40 of the VQ Bulletin. This is a special bulletin, as it marks the beginning of the first wide-scale exams series results’ week for the BTEC January series since January 2020. Thanks to our amazing learners, schools, colleges and assessment associates who have enabled our return to ‘business as usual’.
We have included some key information to assist you this week with managing results, and to remind you about the embargo – where teachers, tutors and learners cannot be given results information until the learner results day on 24 March. You will also find reminders on the services we provide to help you understand your centre’s results, and what steps you can take if you believe there is an issue with how the Mark Scheme has been applied.
As always, you are welcome to contact us with any queries or concerns, keep informed by following @PearsonBTEC, where we will update you with the latest information, or access our FAQ page, which is updated frequently. Our social media is monitored from 8am-4pm, Monday-Friday and we welcome, and will respond to, any suggestions or feedback you have for us. You can also review past bulletins if you have missed any or sign up to receive future updates if you have not already done so, via the link at the end of this bulletin.
