To achieve a ‘pass’ a learner must have successfully passed all the assessment criteria.


Qualification grade

Learners who achieve the minimum eligible credit value specified by the rule of combination will achieve the qualification at pass grade.

In the Edexcel BTEC Level 7 Professional qualifications each unit has a credit value, which specifies the number of credits that will be awarded to a learner who has achieved the learning outcomes of the unit. This has been based on:

  • one credit for those learning outcomes achievable in 10 hours of learning time
  • learning time being defined as the time taken by learners at the level of the unit, on average, to complete the learning outcomes of the unit to the standard determined by the assessment criteria
  • the credit value of the unit remaining constant regardless of the method of assessment used or the qualification to which it contributes.
