BTEC Level 2 results day: Wednesday 22 August 

Learners can be informed on this day and don’t have to wait until GCSE results day on Thursday to receive their results.

On-demand testing

On demand testing involves having several live tests available at any one time so that they can be allocated to your learners at random. This means that your learners will not sit the same test. As is the case with all exams, different tests may have different grade boundaries (which can mean that learners with the same score might obtain a different grade).

This system offers great flexibility as learners can be entered at short notice and they can be entered when they are ready. There is however a flexibility-visibility trade-off. As the tests are live until they are retired, the question papers, mark schemes, examiners' reports and grade boundaries can only be known after a test has been retired. This means that we cannot offer an Access To Scripts service for these tests.

Grade boundaries for on-demand tests are only available once a test has been retired. They are published in the Examiner’s Report.

Grade boundaries for the latest set of externally assessed units

The BTEC First in Information and Creative technology do not have any session based external assessments.

Grade Statistics

The grade statistics for the 2017-2018 academic year are published in late October on the Grade Statistics page of the website.

These statistics can be used for benchmarking purposes.

Please note that in line with all qualifications, learner achievement is reported at qualification level and not at unit level.

Access to Scripts (ATS)

Because all externally assessed units for BTEC First I & CT are on-demand we do not offer Access to scripts for these units.
