Hi, I am a year 10 and I was timetabled down to do GCSE Design and Technology but after realising after a few sessions that I am doing a Pearson BTEC Creative and Media production, which is the same time as any other GCSE(2 years)and I looked through the Pearson website and they don't do BTEC/GCSE Design and Technology so obviously I have been mislead in year 9 when I was picking my GCSE's by the head of KS4. Where is the the wood and metal work in Media production?

You need to go back to your Head of Year and find why the course is not what you opted for.

Pearson do 6 versions of Design and Technology GCSE and well as a BTEC entry level cert in Design and Technology.


Ask the teacher/ course organiser what you are doing and if its not what you want then ask to change.

So ask them and get your parents involved. Is the other course running?

That's probably why but you should have been consulted about alternatives. Is there anything else in that option block that you would prefer?

Have you got friends in your form? What do they do when you are doing this? Were the Option Blocks in your Option Booklet? You need to chase this soon or they will say it's too late to change.

Thanks for the sources but I looked at BTEC awards as that is what we are doing and there is no DT only media production and the source slideshow informed that the course is 2 years, so that is all the way up until I leave Secondary education.

You are missing the point.
Go and ask the course organiser what course it is and if its not the one you want to do then ask to change.
