This update was originally published on 15 June 2022. Following feedback from centres, we've decided to give you more time to change over to the current end-of-items tests. You must now make sure you are using the latest tests for the June 2025 series onwards (not for the June 2023 series, as originally stated).
Entry Level Science R483 is assessed using a combination of short end-of-item tests, can-do tasks and a practical task.
In recent series, we know there have been multiple versions of end-of-item tests used for assessment. For the June 2025 series onwards, we’ll only be accepting submitted marks from the latest assessments. Therefore, please make sure that for the June 2025 series onwards you use only versions 3 and 4 of the end-of-item tests.
You can download the latest versions of end-of-item tests from the Coursework and Tests > Entry Level tasks section on Interchange.
As a reminder, we no longer accept tests from the previous Entry Level Certificate specification R591 – please destroy any unused copies.
Remember, the deadline for submitting marks in the June 2023 series is 15 May 2023.
