– Why is it essential? A BTEC is a vocational qualification at level 3, it is equivalent to an A Level in UCAS points as we have a different criteria for marking, which is:

Pass – Grade E

Merit – Grade C

Distinction – Grade A

It is a mixture of chemistry, phsyics and biology. Through this you will learn all of the key skills of science and get plenty of opportunity to take part in lots of independant work both during practicals and research too.

How are you assessed?

In year 12, you will take an exam that will make up 50% of your overall grade for that year. The other 50% is made up from assignments and practicals.
