It says on my pro-monitor "weight", it doesn't say anything about credit. I assume it's the same thing so I'll say 10.

Also, it says "current grade D*" even though I only have one D grade and one M grade lmfao. The system seems messed up, if need be I'll wait for the results though lol.

I am planning to continue into the second year however, that really depends on my graded for this year:

Unit 1: communication=Distinction
Unit 2: Equality, diverisity etc=Pass
Unit 3: health and safey=Distinction
Unit 4: Development of life=Distinction
Unit 5: Anatomy and phisology=Pass
Unit 6 professional dvelopment=Distinction
Unit 7: Sociology=Pass
Unit 8: Psychology=Pass
Unit 9: values and planning=Merit

All of the units are worth 10 credits apart from.......

Unit 7 and 8= 5 credits and unit 6=20 credits

From the above, these are my results.

You have a total of 760 points. If you manage to get 760 points again next year you will then have a total of 1520 points which is a DDD. You've done quite well this year so I think you should be fine to continue with the second year.

Thanks and may i ask how did you calculate the points?

Pass = 7
Merit = 8
Distinction = 9

For example, unit 1 is worth 10 credits. If you got a distinction on it you would multiply 10 and 9 which is 90 points.

If you look at the picture I attached earlier that should help
12. so if I got 87 points what overall grade would that be?

Hey.

I somehow got DM overall for this year so i can continue and do the second year.

I just hope next year i will be able to get DDM minimum as i need that to get into nursing or else.

Yep, don't you?

If your course is solely based on coursework (like most BTEC are) you should know your grades as soon as you finished the course. Mind you, they don't get officially confirmed for a month or two, but they rarely change.

I know I got D*D*D* with not a single mark missed

My teacher didn't tell my class what grade we got for our last unit so I'm not sure what my overall grade is

You should've gotten the results back. Don't you have resubmissions? Most get them so you should've been told if you need one at the very least. They are also always required to tell you what you got so that you can make sure you think it was graded fairly.

No, she just got my class to sign the declaration sheets when handing in our unit so we could go straight home. I know I got distinctions in all my other units though.
