BTEC's have been cancelled!!!

Everything that you've done so far to date will be graded and a predicted grade would be established from that.

But our teachers set us assignments before we left, will they still count? They are due in the next few weeks. I do BTEC Applied Science and our teachers said we should continue to work through them but this was said prior to this info given by the govt. What should be done?

I am also taking applied science, my class was told to continue with assignments and I’m guessing those results could be used to help develop our overall grade by our teachers? They probably will still count to some extent I hope

So how will this actually be done? Will it be SVs that are giving us our grades or is it our tutors using our predicted grades? I don't some stranger I've never met determining my fate

The exams are cancelled, not the assignments. That’s what I take from that.

I’m quite confused if i’m honest, I’m year 12 currently. I think the best thing to do is to continue with assignments till we get a clearer image? (Or at least that’s what I’ll be doing).

Make sure you guys finish all your assigns you have due since it may affect your overall grade.

Yes
I guess we should complete all the assigns that have been set and await for a response from our teachers for the rest.
