The GNVQ Watch
The intermediate GNVQ was said to be equivalent to 4 GCSEs at grades A*-C. There was lots of criticism about this, but, no matter how much criticism, it still is "officially" equivalent to 4 GCSEs.
So...I myself have a GNVQ in Media: Communication and Production, and got a grade "Merit". So what would this be equivalent to? BBBB? BBCC? Is there any official answer on this?
According to that link, a Merit in a full intermediate GNVQ is worth exactly double of B & B at GCSE equivalence.... so 4B's... (Technically anyway, as I know GNVQs were criticised and looked down upon)
