## Is there anyone who knows about BTec Level 2s who can answer a question for me?

I've tried to find the answer on the Pearson website but it seems to need Windows to work properly and I'm an Apple woman.

On ds's results sheet, after his BTec Sport it says Points 58. Does this mean UMS points? Or what?

Hi the Btec points score refers to the points awarded for each unit. It is quite complicated! 58 points means he achieved a Pass overall. Each unit completed is awarded a number of points Distinction 8, Merit 6, Pass 4 level 1 2 and ungraded 0. This number is then multiplied according to the number of guided learning hours for that unit. Eg if 30 GLH then multiply by 3. So to give an example if X got a Merit in unit 2 which was 30 GLH it would be 6 x 3 = 18. If you add up this for all units together you get the total points.

Overall distinction * = 90, distinction = 84, merit = 66, pass = 48, level 1 =24

Hope this makes sense!

Now that makes it even weirder- he got a Distinction* overall......

What am I missing?

Sorry- forgot to say than you very much for replying!

Hello BertandRussell,

The results sheet shows the results in points and not the actual raw score or the UMS. Therefore:

A*=58
A=52
B=46
C=40

or in your sons case the 58 relates to a distinction. Congrats!

You can find out the raw score by contacting the examinations officer at your son's school.
