    First year I got D*.. I’m now doing my second year to complete a full D*D*D* or D*D*D minimum to get into my uni.

    Today I messed up, I didn’t attend a lesson and had no idea an assignment was due in at 2pm. Which means a late submission: no merit and distinction will be marked. I now have only got a pass for this unit, which is a fairly small one but still.

    Have I now messed up my chances and won’t be able to get a distinction overall? I don’t really understand how BTECs work in terms of that.

    You need to ask your teacher or look it up. Ask Pearson. Its complicated and hard to find info on, even from Pearson.

    I believe its each unit x7 ,8 or 9 and then x by the unit multiplier. External exams count double.

    You then compare that against a table which shows you what the aggregate score equals. D*D*D* might have gone. Ask Pearson if you can do extra modules.. D*D*D might still be possible especially if it was a half unit.
