what education level is gcse
If you are looking at Level 2 courses then you might be asked for some grade 4s or 3s at GCSE. Sometimes an interest in the subject is as important as your GCSE grades. Level 2 courses include GCSEs, BTEC Firsts, NVQ2 or OCR Cambridge technicals and nationals.
Level 1 courses have names like Entry, Foundation or Introductory. They may look for some GCSEs or a good report from your school or college. Really wanting to do the course is just as important.
Thanks to this, young people can feel assured that the grades they receive this year will have the same currency as in any other year. Any students who do not feel the process has been followed correctly will have the right to appeal, and any who are not happy with their grades will have the opportunity to take exams in the autumn.
The petition being circulated on social media suggests there will be a blanket downgrading of all students’ grades by up to 33%. This is not true.
