Functional Skills Exams

Functional Skills exams are a series of qualifications designed to develop practical skills in English, mathematics, and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). These exams aim to equip learners with the necessary skills to succeed personally and professionally. They are widely recognised by employers, colleges and universities across the UK and are an essential part of many vocational qualifications.

Functional Skills qualifications aim to develop learners’ confidence and fluency in maths and English, allowing them to participate and progress in education, training, and employment.

Functional Skills assessments have two outcomes: either a ‘pass’ or a ‘fail’ grade. There are no other grading options available.

What Are Functional Skills Qualifications Equivalent To?

Our Functional Skills qualifications are offered at Level 1 and Level 2. To provide a rough comparison, Level 1 is equivalent to GCSE grades 1-3, while Level 2 is comparable to GCSE grade 4 or a (C grade). Most universities and employers widely accept that Functional Skills Level 2 is an equivalent test to GCSEs.
