    I am currently in my second year studying BTEC National Diploma in Business.Do I have to include the first year results on the education section or does my tutor do that? we did 9 modules last year.

    I got this message "Warning: you are currently in education but have not entered any qualifications yet to be completed"

    Which one is it?

    BTEC National Certificate (2003 onwards)
    BTEC National Certificate (last award 2004)

    This one as I presume you started it after 2003 But, your title says it is a National Diploma, not Certificate?

    I included the results from all of my modules for the BTEC National Diploma, but the Certificate is a completely different qualification - so I'm not entirely sure which section you'd have to check. Why not ask your tutor what you should be doing? They'll probably have a better idea of what you should do next. That said, I'd assume the first option is correct (2003 - onwards).

    Certificate is equivalent to 2 A Levels, the Diploma is equivalent to 3!

    You have to put your unit grades in for everything you've done so far - i.e, all nine modules from last year. The other nine you need to set as pending.

    So you'll end up with:

    Unit 1 - Grade here
    Unit 2 - Grade here
    Unit 3 - Grade here
    Unit 4 - Grade here
    Unit 5 - Grade here
    Unit 6 - Grade here
    Unit 7 - Grade here
    Unit 8 - Grade here
    Unit 9 - Grade here
    Unit 10 - Pending
    Unit 11 - Pending
    Unit 12 - Pending
    Unit 13 - Pending
    Unit 14 - Pending
    Unit 15 - Pending
    Unit 16 - Pending
    Unit 17 - Pending
    Unit 18 - Pending

    Or something similar, depending on which order you've done module in. Ask your tutor which course to put down, they should know.

    I'm pretty sure this is accurate - I'm in my second year of the OCR Extended Diploma and this is how we were told to input our information. The BTEC and OCR Diploma are very similar in structure so I would assume you need to do the same thing. If I were you though I'd check with your tutor before clicking send
