    Hi,

    How are BTEC assignments sent to the examiner and how are they marked? Do they send all assignments or some samples? How likely are grade changes?

    Thanks,

    If you still need this answering..

    I can't say How they're sent off, because I don't know that bit myself,

    The marking is the same as any internal assessment -

    1)Your assessor marks the work, and gets it X-marked if necessary, this is usually on the higher criteria of M/D.
    2) External moderators are sent a sample of the candidates' work (usually the entire work the student has done on the given unit), the moderators mark the sampled work, and if the marks allocated by the internal assessor are consistent and the moderator agrees then all is good, however, if there's a disagreement with marks allocated then all work is usually sent off and scrutinised.

    Grade changes are unlikely unless the tutor is an idiot.

    Would there be any negative bearing if my work is submitted slightly late?

    Your teachers will be mad at you but it shouldn't affect your grade, unless they have rules which means you can't get above a Pass if you submit work late. Depends on your college - you should have been told your colege's rules for late work.
