From Cindy Rampersaud, Senior Vice President - BTEC and Apprenticeships
26 June 2020
We understand that this has been an unsettling time for you, with the news of school/college closures and the cancellation of this summer’s exams/external assessments. We wanted to write to you to reassure you about how your BTEC Level 1-3 results will be calculated this year.
How will your BTEC grades be calculated?
We have asked teachers/tutors at your school/college to provide us with:
- actual grades for internal BTEC units that you completed
‘Centre Assessment Grades’ for internal BTEC units that you were not able to complete, based on available evidence and what your tutors felt you most likely would have achieved under normal circumstances
and for graded BTEC qualifications, a rank order of all learners on your BTEC course, based on what your teachers/tutors felt you would most likely achieve at qualification level, under normal circumstances.
Your teachers/tutors will base their decisions on a range of evidence, including any relevant assignments you have completed, any prior exam or mock results, and your performance during the course. The information they submit to us will be checked beforehand by other teachers/tutors in your school/college and signed off by the Head of School/College.
