I'm doing that course right now. I'm about to finish my first year and can tell you it's not that hard. If you can manage a few thousand words for each unit, you'll be fine. I've got a distinction in all my units so far and should finish with D*D*D* by the end of year 2.
The units they cover depends on your college. They pick 18 units from a list of over 40 units to carry out.
Good luck!

I can definitely imagine the course being a bore if you haven't got tutors who want you to try new things and take you out of your comfort zone.

Luckily our tutor used to work for a prestigious company and has a lot of contacts and business experience opposed to just teaching experience. This year we've taken part in £10 challenges, paper clip challenge, hosting our own charity events had multiple talks ranging from comedy club owners to league 1 professional football players as well as trips to the Gadget show.

He/She's right. If you just did the units then it's really easy and boring. You'd do well not to get distinctions. We had to organise a £1500 event and was responsible for the planning of everything.

Well you should write anywhere from 500-1000 words for each P, M or D. There's an average of about 7-9 P's, M's and D's per unit. So you do the math. It all depends on what you want to go for. I wouldn't say it's hard, it's just about putting effort in.

Oh, and a tip: Make sure you ALWAYS do your work when you get it! Never leave it until the last minute or the end of the year. The coursework will pile up and you could find yourself struggling to pass, as my friend found out. But if you do it straight away, you'll do great!

Like I said, not specifically. But dependant on your college, you may get some activities to carry out for some units.

I want to irritate this; please do NOT use her work AT ALL. This is the sort of plagiarism that gives BTEC a bad name. Do it yourself only. You can finish it in a year and they should let you off if you do it correctly.

9 units each year which makes it a total of 18 units in both years as this is a two year course.

Hey I am also doing BTEC level 3 Extended Diploma and I'm nearing the end of first year I am wondering how many passes , merits and distinctions in each unit do I need to get to get Distinctions in my first year only. Like how many passes and merits am I allowed in each unit for an overall grade of 'DD' in first year.

You might need five distinctions and four merits in your first year to be able to get that grade. I suggest you calculate how many you've got currently. To help you with this, do the followingistinction = 90 pointsMerit = 80 pointsPass= 70 pointsThen with those points that I have shown, you will need to calcauate how many units you have got each grade. For instance, you need to five units (at distinction which is 450) and 4 units (at a merit grade which is 320). Overall you would get DD (750 BTEC Points). You will then need to replicate this on your second year to get overall DDD.
