BTEC Tech Awards in Engineering (2017) - closure

Following our previous communications to you about the above qualification, where we confirmed it would no longer be included on the Performance Tables from 2024, we have now taken the decision to close the qualifications to new registrations with immediate effect.

This decision has been made following contact from ESFA who require us to re-title the qualification in order to retain it, however the numbers of learners are too low to a warrant re-submission to Ofqual.

Getting ready for Results Days in August

You may wish to check your access rights in your Edexcel Online account so that you can access the information you need on results days.

Results files and their contents are confidential to the Head of Centre, examinations office staff and senior members of the teaching staff at the centre. Therefore, the Edexcel Online ‘Results’ profile is only granted to these roles, as it allows access to results files on the Wednesdays before results days.

Other teachers that need access to view results should be given ResultsPlus access by their exams officers, as this is designed to meet the needs of teachers to view and analyse the results for their own students. Results are available through ResultsPlus for teachers on the Thursday results days.

This is a check that our examiners have marked externally assessed components correctly and includes

  • a clerical check (Service 1)
  • a review of marking of units/components by a senior examiner

You can ask us to review the marking of exam papers for individual candidates and the results for each candidate will be reported separately. This service isn't available for internally assessed/externally moderated coursework components.

Candidates’ marks or grades can go up, down or stay the same.

The deadline for completion is within 20 calendar days of receiving the request.

The deadline for us to receive your request for a review of marking is 28 September.

Centres must obtain written candidate consent for clerical re-checks and
reviews of marking, as with these services candidates’ marks and subject grades
may be lowered. Candidate consent must be obtained after the publication of results.

Candidates must be informed that their marks and subject grades could go
down as well as up and must provide their written consent before a request is
submitted. (A suggested form for centres to use is included as Appendix A of the JCQ Post-results Guide).
