Please find the Tech Award November update here, if you have further questions please see the contact details at the bottom of the page.
Remember first externally assessed session is Jan 2024
|BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Award (2022) first external assessment and certification on these programmes will be in the Dec/Jan 2024 session.|
The deadline for registrations closed on 1 November. Registrations must be made for all learners beginning the BTEC Tech Award (2022). The deadline to submit your entries was 18 October. Read more about BTEC tech awards processes using the link below.
We’ve put all the key dates you’ll need for the next academic year of the Tech Awards into one handy reference document, including registration dates for new learners, release dates for PSAs, entry deadlines, external exam timetables and results dates.
Learners can retake internally assessed components once during their course.
If learners are retaking internally assessed components, they must respond to the new PSA released for that series. Learners are permitted to adapt work from their initial sitting where it is appropriate. They can use the full allocated time, including monitored preparation where applicable, and if they choose to adapt work from their initial sitting, they will need to repurpose, build upon and/or amend their work to meet the new PSA. Learners should not be overly guided on how to improve their work, and if assistance is provided, this should be documented and considered during assessment.
For further information, centres should follow the JCQ Guidance with particular attention paid to sections 2 and 17.
If your cohort were not adjusted at moderation then the 'Raw' marks that you submitted will match those used for awarding and the BTEC marks convertor will confirm this.
If your cohort were adjusted then you may want to compare your submitted 'Raw' marks with those used for awarding and to do that please use the Results -> Reports - Bulk Download "Component Results[*.csv]" report which can be downloaded from Edexcel Online (EOL) if you cannot download this report ask your Exams Officer to provide it for you. This report will have the 'RawScore' column which represents the adjusted raw mark that was used for awarding. You can compare this to your submitted 'Raw' marks to understand how much adjustment has been applied.
