News: Update on BTEC qual­i­fi­ca­tions grading

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

28/08/2020: Pear­son have released an updat­ed state­ment regard­ing the regrade process. All Not­ting­ham Col­lege stu­dents can now access their BTEC results through their E‑ILP.

Instruc­tions on how to do this can be found on our how to col­lect your exam results page.

Orig­i­nal arti­cle from 20/08/2020:

Fol­low­ing Ofqual’s announce­ment that A Lev­el and GCSE stu­dents are to receive Cen­tre Assess­ment Grades, Pear­son (the award­ing organ­i­sa­tion respon­si­ble for BTECs) is review­ing the impact of this on BTEC students. 

This means they will now be review­ing all the fol­low­ing BTECs:

  • BTEC Lev­el 3 Nation­als (2010 QCF and 2016 RQF)
  • BTEC Lev­el 12 Tech Awards
  • BTEC Lev­el 2 Tech­ni­cals and 
  • BTEC Lev­el 12 Firsts

They are reas­sur­ing stu­dents that no grades will go down as part of this review. 

They have also asked us not to issue any BTEC Lev­el 1 and Lev­el 2 results today (20th August) as these will be reviewed and where appro­pri­ate, regrad­ed. We do not yet know when this will hap­pen but we will tell you more as soon as we know it. 

If you have been invit­ed to an online or face to face enrol­ment appoint­ment in the next few days please attend and we will do our best to help you. 

BTEC qual­i­fi­ca­tion results have been gen­er­al­ly con­sis­tent with teacher and learn­er expec­ta­tions, but they have become con­cerned about unfair­ness in rela­tion to what are now sig­nif­i­cant­ly high­er out­comes for GCSE and A Lev­els. Although BTEC gen­er­al­ly accept­ed Cen­tre Assess­ment Grades for inter­nal (i.e. course­work) units, they sub­se­quent­ly cal­cu­lat­ed the grades for the exam­ined units using his­tor­i­cal per­for­mance data with a view to main­tain­ing over­all out­comes over time. The review will remove these cal­cu­lat­ed grades and apply con­sis­ten­cy across teacher assessed inter­nal grades and exam­ined grades that stu­dents were unable to sit. BTEC are work­ing to reis­sue these grades and we will update you as soon as we pos­si­bly can. 

BTEC recog­nise this will cause you addi­tion­al uncer­tain­ty and are sor­ry for this. Their pri­or­i­ty is to ensure fair out­comes for BTEC stu­dents in rela­tion to A Lev­els and GCSEs and that no BTEC stu­dent is disadvantaged.
