Thank you for your patience as Btec/Pearson have been working hard with OFQUAL to come to a satisfactory resolution.
Following the outcome of the consultation on the awarding of Vocational and Technical Qualifications Summer 2020, centres are being asked to provide unit grades for internally assessed completed units. In addition to this, centres are also being asked to provide Centre Assessment grades, based on the most likely grade that learners would have achieved for internally assessed units that were due to be completed between 20th March and 31st July 2020, and an overall rank order of learners. The Awarding Body will then conduct checks and statistical standardisation of the grades submitted and will calculate the overall grade at qualification level for Year 14 students. Centres are also asked to provide centre assessment grades for internally assessed units for Year 13 students.
Any information provided by your school to the Awarding Body is strictly confidential.
We would like to assure you that your grades will have equal status to any other year and will be treated as such by universities, colleges and employers.
