Btec Results Delay UK
This week we witnessed some students unable to apply for uni places due to BTEC results delay. The BTec exam board has said it is ‘very sorry’ that some students are still waiting for their results two days after they were due. The knock-on effect of this is the fact that they are unable to confirm university places in time for September’s intake.
What does the delay mean for students?
Many students received A-level, BTec, and T-level exam results, but hundreds of thousands are still awaiting grades. Supposedly, there was no systemic issue regarding the delay, and the board says it’s only a ‘tiny percentage’ with no results. They said the team is working all weekend to deliver results as soon as possible and thanked schools and colleges for working “around the clock”.
A spokesperson for exam board Pearson said: “We are very sorry that some students are still waiting for their results. BTecs are a modular qualification and in order for us to award an overall result. We require grades to be provided for each unit and a claim made to receive the qualification.”
Where can students affected go for support?
A spokesperson for Ucas, the admissions service for higher education institutions in the UK, said: “If students have any questions about their application, Ucas is here to support you. Go to ucas.com or speak to a Ucas adviser on the phone or social media.”
“UCAS advises that universities hold offers until September 7, so any student that has yet to receive their qualification results has time to meet this. Students are also free to start their Clearing research should they wish.”
