BTEC Business Enterprise Exam Board: Pearson Edexcel 
Summer 2022 Exam Dates:
Friday 13 May 1:00pm Paper 1: 2 hours

Important Information:

  • Learners are required to complete and achieve all three components of the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Enterprise qualification.
  • Components 1 and 2 are assessed through internal assessment.  Internal assessment for these components has been designed to relate to achievement of application of the conceptual underpinning for the sector through realistic tasks and activities.  This style of assessment promotes deep learning through ensuring the connection between knowledge and practice.
  • There is one external assessment, Component 3, which provides the main synoptic assessment for the qualification. Component 3 builds directly on Components 1 and 2, and enables learning to be brought together and applied to realistic contexts.
