BTEC Results 2020

Following an announcement by Pearson (the awarding body for BTEC), our Level 2 results which were due to be released on 20 August have now been delayed and the Level 3 are undergoing a review.

Following Ofqual’s announcement that A Level and GCSE students are to receive Centre Assessment Grades, Pearson have reviewed the impact on BTEC students and decided to apply the same principles.

We would like to reassure our students that we are doing everything we can to get the grades to you as soon as we receive them from the awarding body and that your grades and university place will not be adversely affected by the delay which is a national issue. It has now been confirmed that all eligible learners will receive their results by Friday 28 August 2020.

We will be in touch with those students directly affected today by email – thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, please use the chat function on our website, or contact our Exams team on: examinations@bcot.ac.uk if you have any specific questions or concerns about your results.

Can I re-sit at BCoT if I’m not studying there in September?

If you received a GCSE grade through BCoT in August 2020, then yes you can take a Maths or English exam in November, but there is a cost of approximately £100.  If you wish to do this, please contact our exams department examinations@bcot.ac.uk to confirm the fees and arrange to take the exam as an external candidate.
