FAQ from KanduIT:

Comparing different qualifications isn’t always easy, especially when comparing Vocational qualifications with Academic qualifications, the easiest way of doing this is using RQF/QCF Credits and Guided Learning Hours (GLH) is also useful as the two are linked (the higher GLH = more credits).

The BTEC’s we deliver are fully accredited/regulated qualifications which are part of the BTEC ICT specialist family. It is a very flexible framework and the total credits awarded can vary depending on unit combinations, for example the Level 2 can be between 13 and 20 credits depending on the unit combination. As such the information below relates specifically to the Unit combinations we deliver.

If we start with the BTEC Certificate in ICT Systems & Principles Level 2, the qualification is based over 120 GLH (2 x 60 hour units), which equates to 20 RQF/QCF Credits. This is the same as 1 x GCSE and so we would say that the BTEC Level 2 is broadly equivalent to 1 x GCSE with a ‘Pass’ grade (C, or 4-5 with the new marking).

As is typical with most vocational qualifications the ICT Specialist qualifications are graded as Pass/Fail only, so you will find that the value of a GCSE would then go up and down slightly depending on the grade the person achieves.

The BTEC Diploma in ICT Systems & Principles Level 3 is a qualification based over 240 GLH (4 x 60 hour units) which equates to 40 QCF Credits. This is broadly equivalent to 1 x A-Level with a C grade.

The Level 3 Diploma also carries 32 UCAS points according to the UCAS Tariff Calculator https://www.ucas.com/ucas/tariff-calculator

So although they are accredited, recognised qualifications, they are not the same as those taken in colleges and there’s no real direct comparison with GCSES or A Levels. The extended diploma that they used to offer was similar to the level 3 that you would do in college.

So the level 2 is roughly equivalent to a GCSE grade 4 pass. And the level 3 is roughly an A level grade 4 pass. But individual colleges vary on what they’ll count, unfortunately

For comparison – a level 3 BTEC extended diploma they do in college is equivalent to 3 A levels
