BTec results delayed by one week after Pearson reviews grade system

All BTec students will receive their results by the end of next week following delays, the awarding organisation Pearson has said.

A spokeswoman for Pearson said: “We have now written to colleges to confirm that all eligible results will be available by 28 August.”

The announcement comes after hundreds of thousands of students were told at the last minute that they would not receive their BTec results this week.

The exam board made the decision to review the grading of their level 1 to 3 BTec qualifications after Ofqual’s announcement that A-level and GCSE students would receive grades based on their teachers’ estimates.
