    Pass - C
    Merit - B
    Distinction - A
    Distinction Star - A*

    It depends what level your talking about and which btech you’re taking.. E.g. level 1, 2 or 3...? And is it the new course, 2016 or the old 2010?
    I am currently doing level 3 BTECH 2010 course and the grades as of 2017,the teacher told me were:-

    Pass- E
    Merit- C
    Distinction- A
    Distinction*- A*

    I am wanting to aim for a distinction* as my target is that. I need 4 distinction units and 8 merit tasks to get D*D* in the double award diploma.

    Hope this helps for other users.

    Please can you close this thread? BTECs have been completely revamped with the equivalences changing twice in its lifetime and so it is just plain confusing. (It's also full of some very poor answers but that's another story). Thanks
