Need urgent help with btec national grading systemWatch
What is the minmimum critera to pass a BTEC national diploma course? Do you have to pass every single assignment (just for pass not merit or distinction)?
Distinction* = A*
Distinction = A
Merit = B
Pass = C
Anything else is a fail.
I imagine that every assignment carries some weight to the overall grade you'll get so if you didn't do as well in one assignment but did exceptionally well in the other, the grade should balance out. I'd ask your teacher for future clarification and hopefully someone else who knows more than I do replies.
If it was an old BTEC with no exams, technically you need to pass every assignment. If it is an Extended Diploma of an old style BTEC and you messed up your 2nd year, you could still get a certificate from Year 1.
New BTECs with exams - if you achieved a Near Pass in one or more examination units and still got enough overall points in assignments, you can still be awarded a diploma/extended diploma etc
