Science Today Entry Pathways
WJEC provides, and will continue to provide, Science Today Entry Pathways qualifications which meet the needs of teachers and the requirements of regulators in both England and Wales.
Science Today Qualifications
Entry Pathways Science Today is available at Entry 2 & 3. There are a wide range of units that candidates can follow, allowing centres to produce a teaching programme to suit their learners needs. The qualification is available in three sizes: Diploma (37 credits), Certificate (13 or more credits) and Award (8 credits or more).

Some Entry 3 units from Entry Pathways can also be used as credit towards the Pathways Applied Science level 1 qualification.
Please find a checklist for Moderation. This checklist provides a list of all the materials you will need before submitting your work to be moderated.
The Department for Education has recently revised the criteria which must be met for qualifications to attract performance points. Unfortunately, for the 2014 performance measure, all Entry Level qualifications and those at Level 1 which have no direct links to a Level 2 qualification will not be included in these tables after 2013.
Most specifications are co-teachable with their GCSE equivalents and fit into the National Qualifications Framework.
Dates for internal assessment standardising Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for the next academic year will be published shortly. Examination review will be provided online; further details will be issued in due course
