coursework would be marked by teachers and be checked by the examiner to see if it is fair what the teacher gave you

Did you finish all your units? Was there any exams that you were yet to do this year?

None of my course is exams.

We finished all units apart from 2 due to the virus. The exam board were contacted and we were told we did not have to complete assignments after a certain deadline. I submitted all required assignments before the deadline though.

Ah right. Then the teacher will assess then someone may moderate it externally

downgrading shouldn't even occur for btecs as the is sufficient evidence such as units completed before corona

Again, A levels seem to be getting priority 😔
This is so annoying. We are as equal as they are so why are we not getting told specifically how we will be affected if any.

Completely agree! Although I’m only a first year, it’s still massively impacting my future. I cannot begin to understand how stressed and anxious second years must feel! It’s such a shame that people still view BTECs as the “easy” option or that if you take one, you just aren’t smart enough for A Levels.

I hope everyone does amazing and proves all these people wrong!

It sure is, i find it so degrading when i tell people and they give the sneer. Good luck guys, lets prove them wrong. We are as if not more deserving than they are. We worked tireless for the whole year/two years. We earned it. Lets hope the grades do us justice!!

Hi, everyone!
This year, i managed to complete my BTEC level 3 extended diploma in IT. At first I thought my results were going to come out tomorrow, but they surprisingly came by post just this morning.

For my results I got: D*D*D. I'm extremely satisfied with my results and I hope every single one of you get amazing results that you'll also be satisfied with.

Good luck to everyone who will receive their results today or tomorrow. You can do this! I'm rooting for you all! :flower2:
