BTEC Music in a year - is it possble?

    Good afternoon

    Just a quick question for anyone who has experience of teaching GCSE and BTEC music.

    We achieved horrendous GCSE Music results this year, primarily because our students are good at perf and comp but hopeless at the exam paper.

    We are introducing BTEC Music Level 2 Award with the new year 10 cohort, but my Head has also suggested we consider changing the Yr11s to the BTEC to avoid a similar results crisis.

    Am giving this serious consideration, but would appreciate any advice from experience whether it is possible to deliver the BTEC Level2 award (ie 120 guided learning hours) in such a short space of time?

    Many Thanks

    BTEC music also has an exam.
