With educational institutes closing and the government’s decision to cancel exams, we know that for some of you this might be worrying. Maybe that next step up the career ladder needs a qualification you don’t have? Or maybe you want to go onto further education but didn’t quite reach the grade first time round. For all of you and more, there is a solution: GCSE Equivalent Qualifications.
The most popular of these, and the most widely taken exam, is the Functional Skills qualification. The functional skills exam is the largest of the GCSE equivalent qualifications, allowing nearly 700,000 people a year to advance their careers. We know as well as you that the idea of visiting a centre right now doesn’t sound all to enticing, but we can help you get around that.
The Functional skills maths level 2 exam sat by our friends at MME is great for this. Not only do they provide excellent resources for your revision and a friendly team to help you through the process, but the exam is done from home! Yes, the Functional Skills maths level 2 online exam could be just the ticket that you need to get to where you want to be. The exams are also much nicer, with more of a focus on “real life” than conceptual theories like Algebra!
What’s more, MME also sit a functional skills English level 2 qualification too. The functional skills English level 2 online exam is also nice in that it allows you to sit from home whilst being much more about day to day activities like writing letters, and less about analysing poetry or books.
If you would like some more information on these exams, or how they can help you to move forward with your life, you can visit MME at their website, and use the code mumbler10 for 10% off the exams and revision materials!
