    Has anybody else read the specification starting in 2016?

    120 hours compulsory module on Maths and Physics is truly daunting!

    Anyone else panicked by this?

    looks truly terrifying. Is it a compulsory change or can we continue to teach the old QCF? My students will not perform well in an exam!!

    Level 3 Engineering has moved from vocational to academic. As hard if not harder then A level now.

    Both BTEC and OCR now require external exams in Maths, Science, Electronics and Mechanics.

    OCR are ahead slightly, No other courses are progress measures recognised yet or funded.

    The AQA course is just as tough.

    Both courses will be difficult for lower ability learners who mamaged to scrape level 2 grades B/C
