Hi guys,

I'm so stressed out, I got my result for Btec applied science level 3 (first year) and I achieved (PP) Pass.

Basically I did all the merits and passes even one distinction but handed all on the one week before the final deadline before BTEC Closed.

Is there any point to continue this course for second year? if I do continue what is the highest grade that I can achieve as overall grade?

Im thinking to study foundation year for optometry degree or dental Hygienist degree or biomedical science degree at uni.

if anyone can let me also know regards if there is any exam
involved in the new BTEC rule? I have done first year now I'm unsure about second year... PLEASE HELP.

I'm assuming 90-credit Diploma. What was the units you did and level? Not all units are usually level 3. Also the credits.

ex.

Unit 1, level 3, grade pass, credits 10.

Don't worry too much. Make sure to work hard and get distinctions in the rest of your units. I am pretty sure you will have the chance to do the merits and distinctions that you didn't do this year. Speak to your course teacher and tell them that you are keen on getting a distinction

Oh your doing the same course as me, I got D* if you need help on organising you can PM me, from what I read you rushed at the end. You got 620 points this year, on the basis if you get Distinstion on every unit next year you'd get around DMM - PMM, depending on if all the credits are 10 and if they are all Level 3 (I'm sure they are) so it is still possible to get DMM-MMM. You'd then be able to go into a foundation year.

So just try to be more organised next year adapt around the problems, which I'm sure something happened in that year and you'll get DMM-MMM.

I know it may not seem like but the fact you've passed is still a massive achievement and you should be proud of yourself.

I'm an adult with my own house and just finished my first year of btec level 3 extended diploma in animal management.

I was literally so stressed with all the course work in the first year but I continued to work hard even when it got tough and hoping to come out with D*D* when I finally get my results.

It is doable you just have to stay motivated, work hard, do all the criteria and try wherever possible to get work in on time. Some on my course this first year were terrible when it came to deadlines and doing work and will be lucky to pass.

In my second year I'm doing placement one day a week in a vets and attending night classes twice a week to to improve some of my GCSEs. Hopefully I won't have a meltdown 😂

Finally completed two years of BTEC applied science Level 3. Looking forward to get D*D*D*. However, disappointing that the course I wanted to apply to had currently changed its entry requirements and now need an A level Chemistry at B grade. 2 years wasted
