What is the Edexcel Entry Level Certificate?

Our Edexcel Entry Level Certificate is a one-­ to two­-year course designed as an Entry Level alternative to, or route towards, GCSE study.

Although mainly studied by 14­- to 16-­year­-old students, the Edexcel Entry Level Certificate is open to a wide range of learners, including adults returning to education and people with special educational needs.

Assessment is through coursework, supervised tasks, or both. On completion, each student is awarded a grade of Entry 1 (lowest), Entry 2, or Entry 3 (highest).
