BTEC Applied Science, Level 3: Unit 26

Discussion in 'Science' started by QueenOfTheLab, Jan 2, 2011.

  1. Yes there are! There are two BTEC specifications. The old spec is from 2008, and is accredited to NQF. Our last NQF BTEC group will gain their qualifications in August 2011.

    The new spec is on QCF, and we started teaching on it in September 2010. The two specs are not compatible, so much like with A-level and GCSE specs you'll have the 2nd years doing the old spec and the 1st years doing the new spec at the moment.

    On the old spec, unit 26 is called "Industrial Applications of Chemical Reactions", and you'll find it has four tasks, each with P M D available. On the new spec, unit 26 is called "Industrial Chemical Reactions", and there are more tasks and the P M and D are dispersed unevenly between them.

    Hope this helps! It's been an absolute bu99er this year getting used to the change.
