Need help understanding BTEC Extended Diploma grading system and ucas pointsWatch
From what i understand for my assignment based units a pass is 6 points, merit is 10 points and a distinction is 16. In the exam based units a pass is 12 points, merit is 20 points and a distinction is 32. On the btec calculatori have been told to use 60glh points for assignments and 120glh for exams.
The thing that confuses me the most is that in most my units in the first year i got merits. In the assignment based units i got 3 merits and 2 passes. In the exams i got 2 merits. If my Calculations are thats 82 ucas points and i could get a DDD which according to google is 142 points if i got merits in all my 8 assignmwnts this year.
It confuses me that even tho i havent got any distinctions my overall grade can be a DDD.
I need help knowingg if i've correctly understood the system.
Sorry this is so long and confusing xD
