    There are only some subjects at BTEC that will have exams... however they will not have many, if you are looking for which ones have exams look at which subjects have a new specification for 2016 on the Pearson edexcel website

    One of my teachers said that they are adding exams to BTEC courses next year, which means that not everything is going to be just coursework based... What do you think of this?
    Its good, because you get both not just coursework... so your prepared for university.

    The top universities do, I think bringing in exams is brillant, its also modular so not much worries.
