The BTEC Level 2 Certificate is broadly equivalent to one GCSE and offers a specialist qualification that focuses on particular aspects of employment within the appropriate vocational sector and can extend a learner’s programme of study and provide a vocational emphasis.
To achieve a ‘pass’ a learner must have satisfied all the pass criteria. To achieve a ‘merit’ a learner must additionally have satisfied all the merit criteria and
