Here are the questions that seem to be on the minds of a lot of Tech Award teachers at the moment:
Q: Can a student use the same production/repertoire if they are retaking Component 1 or 2?
A: Yes, a student can use the same production/repertoire if they retake a PSA.
Q: If a student retakes a Component, is it the highest or the newest mark that counts towards their final qualification grade?
A: It will be the highest mark acheived
Q: Is the mark scheme changing for Component 3 or will it be the same as we used in the 2017 specification?
A: The mark scheme will remain the same
Ofqual have released a blog about their role as regulators of vocational and technical qualifications, and what grading might look like this academic year
In September I will be running network events for our level 2 and 3 BTEC Performing Arts and Production Arts qualifications.
In these events, we will:
- Reflect on the Summer exam series for external and internal components and units
- Look at the key events and up to date information for this new academic year
- Share ideas, resources and approaches to teaching the components
- Have the opportunity to ask questions and network
