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.

Please note that the marks for the internal assessments/controlled assessments are to be submitted via the Internal Assessment Mark Input System (IAMIS) on the secure website.
