BTECs are awarded by Edexcel. CTECs are awarded by OCR. They are exactly the same, same UCAS points, same *grades etc. BTECs have been around for years and some colleges have just changed awarding bodies from Edexcel to OCR.

The one I'm lined up to start in a couple of weeks time decided to change from OCR to Edexcel/Pearson in June! I'm glad because the BTEC subjects seem more clear cut and it seems easier to find out about the units online.
