One of the GCSE Equivalent qualifications that you can take is the Functional Skills Maths Level 2 that is accepted by universities and employers. This qualification is normally taken by people who need an equivalent qualification since they didn’t achieve a C/4 in their GCSE Maths and it is required for a job or course.


An exam that is offered by MME and we at Leicester Tutor Company provide sessions in is the online functional skills exam. Since the exam is online, you need a computer or laptop that has a webcam to be able to sit it. The exam will take 2 hours and someone that is an Ofqual approved in vigilant or will send a link to you by email for the exam. The exam can take place on any day but sundays and you can sit it within 5 days from when you booked it with MME. How you receive your results is via an email and this can take up to 16 working days while the certificate takes longer since it is 3 weeks after you pass. We understand that you need to revise for the exam and you might find it hard but we recommend to spend 50 to 60 hours revising before you sit the exam.

The price that MME has set is the cheapest with the whole course costing £226. What you receive in the whole course is the Functional Skills Level 2 Maths Online Exam which is accredited, resources for the maths functional skills exam and the Functional skills Maths Level 2 practice papers. You can also get different exam boards, such as City and Guilds, Functional Skills Maths Level 2 past papers and mock exams for free on MME’s website. On their website, you will see model solutions for some of the questions.

OpenAwards is an exam board and the government has approved their exams. MME provides their Mock Exam for free on their website. The Functional skills Maths Level 2 practice papers can be accessed for multiple exam boards on their website too which their content team have put together to help your chance of passing.

You are able to resit the exam if you didn’t do well in your first attempt. Resitting exams can be costly so MME has an offer of £175 for the exam and additional support to help learners pass the exam.
