BTEC Nationals (2010)

For the BTEC Nationals (2010) the OSCA window opened on 22 August and will close on 17 October 2016. The results will be released on 7 November 2016.

BTEC Nationals (2016 and 2017)

We are continuing to develop material to support you in the delivery of the new BTEC Nationals. For the new Music specification there will be Authorised Assignment Briefs and Sample Marked Learner Work.

We already have some of these available for the Music Technology suite and are continuing to add to these resources. There are also additional sample assessment materials for the externally assessed units in the Music Technology suite.

If you would like to check any assignments you have written for any BTEC National specification you can submit them through the Assignment Checking Service to receive feedback from a Standards Verifier.

Submit and assignment to the Assignment Checking Service
