ELC Science

  • Teaching from: September 2016
  • Exams from: June 2017
  • Specification code: 5960
  • QAN code: 601/7522/9

Our science Entry Level Certificates (ELC) build on the core scientific concepts and skills taught at Key Stage 3. The specifications are fully co-teachable with our GCSE Combined Science courses.

Studying ELC science will build students’ confidence in science, especially lower-ability students. Assessment is on demand, so your students can complete assignments when they are ready, helping to keep them motivated.

Choose from single or double award specifications, so you can tailor your teaching to suit the needs of your students. Both qualifications cover the Key Stage 4 programme of study for science.
