What does ds mean in btec?

Hi, I got my results for btec level 3 applied science and in the paper it says that I got DS. Does DS stand for distinction star?
Hi.
I thought this too, and was confused because I thought I got a Distinction. I looked though and it is a Distinction. They probably do it DS so it's not confused with an A-Level D (I would have freaked if I'd seen that, and I imagine many others who also do a-levels would have done too).
Still a great grade though, well done! :smile:

Thank you for your answer :smile:
So it is just a distinction right? I'm happy about it:smile:
Could be Distinction Star

BTEC grades go as follows
Distinction Star
Distinction
Merit
Pass
Fail

It's definitely a Distinction. I imagine it's written as DS to avoid confusion with a-level grade D, as they mean very different things.
