The BTEC courses includes a range of external assessment methods e.g. exams, controlled assessments & board set assignments.
Internally assessed units will require you to complete an assignment and use ICT to present your evidence using a variety of standard software packages. This may include websites, presentations, reports, brochures/leaflets etc. The IT specification has been revised by the exam board, in collaboration with universities and employers, to ensure that content is up-to-date and gives students the skills and knowledge needed in the field of IT.
