BTEC Results Update
Following the announcement that all A level and GCSE learners are to be awarded Centre Assessment Grades Pearson have reviewed the impact this may have on BTEC learners, and their grades, and will therefore be reviewing BTEC qualifications in the following ways:
- BTEC level 3 qualifications will be reviewed and regraded following the same principles as A levels and GCSEs and results updated for learners who have been affected
- BTEC level 1 and 2 qualifications will be reviewed and regraded to ensure fairness and consistency across all qualifications
What does that mean for me?
- If you were a BTEC level 3 learner in 2019-20, qualification grades will be reviewed and communicated as soon as possible should there be a change. No learners grade will go down as part of this review
- If you were a BTEC level 1 or 2 learner in 2019-20 and expecting to receive your results this week your results will not now be released until the grading review has taken place
We will communicate results with you as soon as they are available. We understand that this has been a difficult and challenging time for all learners undertaking qualifications this academic year. The College will be open for support and guidance related to results, general College queries and course related queries throughout the results period.
Paul Stannard, Vice Principal Quality at Eastleigh College said that "we appreciate that this news will cause uncertainty for our learners but we would like to reassure everyone waiting for BTEC Level 1, 2 or 3 results that no learner will be disadvantaged. We are working as quickly as possible to confirm results recognising the impact that delays are having."
Whether you have applied to university, are continuing at college, or entering employment we wish you the best of luck for the future.
Eastleigh College opens a rapid-turnaround onsite Covid-19 testing centre
Eastleigh College is offering rapid-turnaround lateral flow tests for learners and staff to help in the fight against Covid-19. Lateral flow tests can produce quick results and can be used to identify Covid-19 infection in those without symptoms (asymptomatic). It is hoped that running these tests across the college will result in faster detection of cases for learners and staff without symptoms, and therefore achieve a more effective prevention of infection.

The Prime Minister announced that GCSE and A level exams would not take place this summer, and that vocational examinations would continue as planned. We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
