    Hi guys, I'm currently in my first year of btec level three business. Earlier on in the year my teacher told me that to get D*D* I'll need 2 merits and 7 distinctions.
    I wanted to ask if I'll still get D*D* with these grades. Also is there any chance that the grades boundaries will increase or decrease

    You will have one exam and also at least one controlled assessment.
    Those starting the new BTEC Sep 2016 will have just one exam window. It will depend on the subject as to when that takes place.

    There will of course be coursework units to add to this as well.
