When can the learners resit unit 1 or unit 2 for NQF BTEC Firsts in I & CT?

The on-demand on-line tests can be requested at any time convenient for you and your students, there is no limit on the number of resits that are allowed.

How many times can they resit?

At the moment you can resit an external unit as many times as you wish. However, Ofqual are closely monitoring this, and the situation may change in the future.

I want my students to resit units 1 or 2; how do I do this if I have claimed certification?

Where a certification claim has been made for an NQF BTEC qualification, but the learner wants to resit an externally assessed unit to improve their grade, you firstly need to decline their overall qualification grade. You may decline the grade before the certificate is issued; for a learner receiving their results in August, you should decline the grade by emailing the request to before the end of September if the learner intends to resit an external assessment.

After certification, learners who want to reject the grade(s) achieved must make a request to decline the grade(s) through their centre. These requests need to be made within five weeks of the certification issue date. You'll need to return all certification documentation to us, along with a covering letter explaining why the grade(s) should be declined.

We'll process all requests that we receive within five weeks of the certification issue date free of charge. If you make a request after that, we can only accept it while the learner registration and programme approval is still valid and we will charge a duplicate certificate fee.

What support is available to me?

The Lead Examiner report will be available on the qualification page on results day.

There will be training events in the autumn term .

To allow time for EAR services for the externally assessed components of the qualification, certificates will be sent at the same time as GCE/GCSE certificates, to arrive in centres before 31 October.

I hope you have found this update useful. Should you wish to discuss this or anything else further, please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Tim Brady
