I believe you get 2 grades. The first year is the diploma (which count as 2 A levels) and the 2nd year is the extended part.

The first year of the Extended Diploma is a 90-Credit Diploma (1.5 A levels) which consists of 2 grades e.g. DM where the first grade is equivalent to an A level and the second equiv to an AS level - it is not the standard Diploma (2 A levels) or a Subsidiary Diploma (1 A level) in most cases it is the 90-credit diploma which makes more sense as it covers half the course suirrel YeFool


in your second year you will top this up to an Extended Diploma completing a further 90 credits to meet the required 180 for the Extended diploma, this is usually 9x 10 credit units in each year

but again, to answer your question, for just the first year you get a BTEC Level 3 90 credit diploma which is worth 1.5 A levels and you receive 2 grades for this

Thank you for the clarification! At my college they refer to the first year as just the "diploma" -- I didn't consider that the regular diploma was not 90 credits although it seems so obvious now.
