Hi there,
Can't speak for your college but mine rushed me to hand in as much work as possible before mid June and the rest of the work we couldn't do was predicted by the college. Yours might be the same and I'm pretty sure the deadline for final grades is this week anyway.
Did a QCF BTEC level 3 / extended diploma in electrical / electronic engineering and I've been told unofficially by a lecturer that I was given D*D*D* overall.
Officially results will most likely be on the same day as A-level results day and you will know what uni you get into then. Hope that helps a bit

Your teachers will have sent actual grades for units you had completed and predicted grades for the others. If you regularly met all deadlines and achieved a Distinction first time for the units you finished, they will more than likely have predicted Distinctions for the others. If however, you were just getting passes and ./ or missed deadlines, they will probably predict just passes for the units that were incomplete due to lockdown.
Pearson are currently carrying out quality checks on all centres, and they will either agree the grades, or adjust them up or down if necessary.
You will receive your results on Thursday 13th August and UCAS will update automatically on that date.
