About ELC Science 5960 Syllabus

Why choose AQA for ELC Science

We design qualifications to enable students to engage, explore, enjoy and succeed in science. By putting students at the heart of everything we do, our aim is to help teachers shape success in science for every student.

Entry Level Certificates (ELCs) are nationally recognised qualifications which give students the opportunity to achieve a certificated award. The ELC Science specification is co-teachable with our GCSE Combined Sciences to suit students who are studying both qualifications. The assessment is on demand so your students can complete assignments when they are ready, helping to keep them motivated. Like all of our science qualifications, we use straightforward language in our tests to allow students to focus on the science and achieve the results they deserve.


As an approved Entry Level qualification, the ELC Science specification provides excellent progression to GCSE studies particularly in GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy and GCSE Combined Science: Synergy.

The ELC provides flexibility, but on a clear progression pathway. It equips students with skills and knowledge transferable to both educational and career settings, and provides a worthwhile course for students of various ages and from diverse backgrounds in terms of general education and lifelong learning.
