Adaptations for 2020/21

We have been able to confirm adaptations to units and components for this academic year due to the impact of Covid-19. These are generally a reduction in the assessment evidence required to meet the grading criteria. These adaptations are detailed in the Teaching, Learning and Assessment Guidance available on the website. The guidance also gives ideas of approaching units and components using remote delivery and considering social distancing.

External Assessments

The external assessment tasks for BTEC Nationals in Music Performance and Music Technology will be found within the 'Secure Tests' area of the website on their respective release dates. They will be gold padlocked, which means you will need to get your Exams Officer to download the tasks for you as a standard Edexcel Online account won't be able to access the material.
