    Hello all
    Looking through Edexcel website and found that to pre-empt the fallout from the Wolfe Review, Edexcel are looking to introduce 20% external assessment requirement for school based BTECs in this area (amongst others) from September 2012
    Does anyone know what this will look like - will it be an exam, externally set and marked assignment or an extension of the current standards verification process? Any information or thoughts welcomed.

  2. Spoke to my regional quality person last Friday and they dont know yet. Except that it will be JUST level 2 and ONLY in some popular subjects. For example, kiss goodbye to BTEC L2 Hospitality!
     
  3. I noticed this too. Are they joking? I've just re-written 5 level 2 units this year. Is it all going to change again?
