What qualification is the M1 in? Is it perhaps an OCR Cambridge National? Or a BTEC Tech Award? Or something else?

If it's an OCR Cambridge National, then page 8 of this says it's a grade 2 at GCSE. The same would be true of a BTEC Tech Award, as far as I can tell. If you can confirm the qualification, that'd be useful.

Thanks. This page confirms that an M1 (which they refer to as a L1 M, or a Level 1 Merit), is equivalent to a GCSE grade 2.
