# Biomedical science BTEC level 3 extended diploma watch

1. Hi I just wanted to know how many unit should I get distinction, merit or pass too acheive DDD or D*D*D*

I'm so confused . This is my first year and I don't understand the grading

2. When doing a btec a distinction * (D*) is somewhat equivalent to like an A-A* grade in btec terms x
3. You’ll need all distinction to get D*D*D* and DDD majority of units you’ll need Distinction but few can be merits

Pass = 7,
Merit = 8,
Distinction = 9

DDD= 1500
D*DD =1530
D*D*D=1560
D*D*D*=1590

Out of a total possible 1620.
