19/8 update: BTEC grades pulled & to follow same grading principle as GCSE & A-levelWatch
This feels like really important news that everyone should be aware of, so I'm tagging in all posters of the BTEC forum over the last few months. I hope you don't mind!
Oh, that's nice. Hopefully the students will get their grades that they wanted and spread all that good energy when they go to university to help the students that have done A-Levels and mixed in with their practical skill sets.
Why does having concern for a qualification suddenly makes it seem like it's against A-levels to you, especially since you probably finished your 6th form education and this shouldn't concern you unless you have some valuable information that would help these students about their not yet recieved grades? Who hurt you?
Why does having concern for a qualification suddenly makes it seem like it's against A-levels to you [care to explain what this means? Doesnt make sense to me],
especially since you probably finished your 6th form education [ what does that have to do with anything? Am I not allowed to have an opinion?]
and this shouldn't concern you [who made you God about what I can and cannot be interested in?]
unless you have some valuable information that would help these students about their not yet recieved grades? [you make no sense ]
Who hurt you? [Bizarre]
If you want me to understand then you will need to make it intelligible.
Always a chance but I think unlikely. Point is by the times schools were close many btecs were 75%+ complete. I think if anything BTEC students deserve to be upgraded for having done a more testing qualification as well as being given the bonus grades A level students have benefited from.
Well not to be obvious but your first comment seems a little bit off in terms of the subject matter. Saying ''Interesting to see at the moment BTECS are regarded as the superior and more academically challenging qualification'' even though nobody claimed that on this thread, makes it seem like you are misinterpreting their concern as an insult. If you said the same thing about A-levels on a thread concerning A-levels wouldn't that sound rude?
Did I say anyone claimed it on this thread? I was happy enough to make the statement myself.
How can I be misinterpreting anyones concern, when I have done no interpretation at all just made a statement?
''Interesting to see at the moment "A levels" are regarded as the superior and more academically challenging qualification'' No it doesnt sound rude.
Yes but I am literal and accurate sort of chance spaceships and aliens. The grades will go up as it is a bit illogical to think otherwise.
Grades will go up overall but a decent number of individual grades will stay the same as they did with alevels and such.
