Hi, I’m a first year college student doing Level 3 BTEC National Extended Diploma, and i simply don’t get how the grading system works. I would like to know how many Distinctions do i need on each individual assignment in order to get an overall DDD at the end of the two years. By the way my course has 15 units, and i know that DDD is equivalent to 144 tariff points. I already have a pass for the first assignments for two of my units, and i know i can’t get a merit or a distinction on those units anymore.

You need to get at least 9-10 Distinctions for a DDD and, if you want to push yourself, you need to get at least 10-11 Distinctions. Refrain from getting passes at all cost- they'll look bad on you. And, external exams are worth as two assignments. So, if you get a Distinction in an exam, it would count as you getting 2 distinctions.

Download the relevant Grade calculator from the link below. Complete all of the details and units that you have already achieved. You can then play around with other units to calculate your overall predicted grade; https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...alculator.html
