We have recently updated the Additional SAM for unit 1 to improve the formatting of the formulae and constants booklet. The question paper and the mark scheme have not been amended. This version of the booklet will be used in January 2019 and Summer 2019 external assessment series.

Products being drawn in LA A and LA B should be different; however, as long as the learners have drawn the components from scratch in a 2D CAD package for LA B then it is acceptable for the product in LA A and LA B to be the same. What the learners must not do is use or adapt output from LA A in LA B, i.e. use the 3D software to generate the 2D projected views within the base view to create orthogonal drawings, automatically.

In March we shared a letter published by Ofqual encouraging Awarding Organisations to “consider changes” to their level 3 Applied General and Tech Level qualifications "to provide a ‘safety net’ for students who narrowly miss a pass on one or more externally-assessed units.” Since we shared the letter with you, Ofqual have published a blog post that provides more detail on the implications of these changes.

This is great news, as more of your learners should successfully achieve their BTEC Nationals. 

Following on from this we are introducing the 'N grade'. Please read the update in the link below.

We’re sharing with you an update the Department for Education (DfE) sent to us in late July 2018 about resit opportunities for learners studying BTEC level 3 qualifications included on the Applied General and Tech Level performance tables in England. We’ll explain what they told us, and clarify what this means for you and your learners.

What this means for you in 2018/19: Two resit opportunities

All learners:

  • currently studying any BTEC Level 3 National (RQF) or one of the four BTEC Level 3 Specialist Hospitality titles (Food and Beverage Supervision, Chef de Partie, Kitchen and Larder, Patisserie and Confectionery), or
  • registering from September 2018

will have a maximum of two opportunities to re-sit external assessments (three attempts in total).

Pearson is not able to specify a list of the resources for the exam until the instructions to teachers for the practical exam have been published.

These instructions will be made available to teachers 4 weeks prior to the start of the Pearson set assessment period and they must be kept secure at all times.

Please note that as far as possible we are selecting activities that involve resources which are commonly found in schools. 

Both BTEC First Award and BTEC Tech Award are on performance measures in 2019. However, only the Tech Award will count towards 2020 performance measures. Therefore, in September 2018 you should switch to the BTEC Tech Award, which will count on performance measures in 2020.
