Entry Level Certificate | Science


The Entry Level Certificate in Science gives students access to the Key Stage 4 programme of study. Consisting of twelve units, the course is designed to be taught in small steps to meet students’ individual learning styles. As each unit is only assessed when the teacher decides that students are ready for assessment, students are more motivated and have a greater chance of success.

A new Entry Level Certificate qualification in Science has now been accredited by Ofqual for first teaching in September 2013. This will replace the current specification (8938), for which the final assessment window will be June 2014.

Assessments for the new specification are currently being written and will be available in October 2013.
