Pearson announcement about the regrading of BTEC qualifications

You may have seen in the media the announcement from awarding body Pearson that Level 1 / Level 2 BTEC results will not be released as planned today (Thursday 20 August). This is outside of the control of the college and we know that this will be causing concern amongst our students.

Pearson have stated:

We have reviewed the impact on BTEC students and taken on board feedback from teachers, schools and colleges. Following our review and your feedback we have decided to apply Ofqual’s principles for students receiving BTECs this summer. This means we will now be regrading all the following BTECs - BTEC Level 3 Nationals (2010 QCF and 2016 RQF), BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Awards, BTEC Level 2 Technicals and BTEC Level 1/2 Firsts.

Therefore, we ask schools and colleges not to issue any BTEC Level 1 and Level 2 results (on Thursday 20 August) as these will be reviewed and where appropriate, regraded.”

As soon as results are available, Nescot will post these and will notify our students.
