Entry Level Certificate in Mathematics

Qualification
This qualification allows Entry Level students to show what they can do, from the carefully selected content and clearly worded questions, to the level-targeted tests which assess small steps of progress. Assessments are designed to be taken when the student is ready.

The content is based on the key underpinning skills and concepts of GCSE Mathematics, with new topics at Entry Level 3 carefully selected from the more accessible topics in GCSE (9–1) Mathematics.

There are no time limits for the assessments and plenty of retake opportunities.

All the assessments in this qualification are 100% externally set and internally marked.
