I have emailed one of the heads in my school, regarding the BTEC results day, when the date is, as I need to confirm travel plans. I got this response ''There is no result day in BTEC but you will be informed once the school receive your certificate in August or September. Also if you are going to do complete 2 year diploma for both of your courses then you will get the result/ certificate after completing the diploma next year.''. I will be doing the 2 year diploma does this mean I have to wait until next year to find out my subsidiary diploma grades, which I did this year? Is the results system like this as we'll in UK?

As your head stated, there is no actual results day for BTEC. Some centres do issue them alongside A level results, but BTEC send them to the centres as soon as they are processed. As you are doing a second year, the grades you have go towards the overall second year grade. If you don't complete a second year, they will issue you this certificate. You should be able to get your results from your tutor. In fact we tell them their overall grade and give them the students copy of their SRF when they complete. If you have been enrolled straight onto an overall Extended diploma for two years, then there wont be a Sub Dip diploma issued.

Thank you for the response. I have always had a confusion in my mind, ever since I started the BTEC. You know how I have completed a subsidary diploma this year completing my first year's BTEC. Will next year be the extended diploma? I thought the second year is known as the National diploma? Another thing why does the extended diploma have 3 grades? Does it count the 1 grade you got from first year? I would really like this knot to be tied up in my mind ahaha.

Thanks

They extended has 3 grades because it is worth 3 A levels

The grade you get is determined by how many btec points you accumulate (credits*grade) which turns out as pass = 70, merit = 80 and dist = 90 (based on 10 credit units) and to get D*D*D* in an Extended you need 1590 minimum from 180 cedits which in simpler terms is 18 10 credit units with 15 of them as distinctions and 3 of them as merits or equivalent

The subsid is not one of the 3 grades, however the points obtained from it will contribute to your extended diploma grade

Thanks for the response. I dont think il be doing the extended though? Because I am doing 12 Units between both of my BTECS in the 2 years. So 6 Units in BTEC IT year 1 6 Units BTEC science year 1, then its the same for next year. That calulates to 24 Units total betweem both BTECS. So the national diploma is the extended right? or are they two seperate things? What did you do? Did you progress from a subsidary diploma in year 1 to a extended diploma?

The reason I ask this is because I have been using the UCAS search tool, to look for Unis. When I look in the BTEC requirmenets i dont kno which ones i need to be looking at. There are so many btec options which Unis require.Thats why im wondering if there is even National Diploma, or if its known as extended diploma.

A lot of unis will only state thier offer for the extended because thats what most people do

You are doing 2 diplomas equal to 2 A levels each as you said, this will still get you into uni however you will need to query your qualifications with the universities that you are looking to go to, but if they accept the extended they will most likely accept your 2 diplomas as they are worth more.

I think the best thing for me is to just email them and find out.
