Medical Science Level 3
WJEC is pleased to offer two new qualifications for use by centres in England and Wales from September 2016:
- Level 3 Diploma in Medical Science
- Level 3 Certificate in Medical Science
The qualifications have been developed in conjunction with Universities and Clinical Pathology laboratories. They provide an engaging and meaningful context led approach to the development of scientific knowledge and skills, and enable learners to develop the tools necessary to understand, assess and suggest solutions to real-world medical problems and challenges. The qualifications place significant stress on the development of good practical skills necessary to monitor health and disease.
The pre-release material for unit 1 Medical science is now available.
WJEC is pleased to confirm that our Level 3 Medical Science vocational qualifications have been approved for inclusion in School Performance Tables in England.
