One of the GCSE Equivalent Qualifications that has been designed for learners if they didn’t successfully gain a Grade C/Level 4 in GCSE Maths is the Functional Skills Maths Level 2 qualification. This qualification is accepted by universities, most course providers and employers.


MME is a service we work with that can help you with  online functional skills exams. Leeds Maths Tutors provides one to one functional skills sessions to help the learner prepare for the exam. The exam can be sat during the week or on a Saturday and the exam takes 2 hours. The exam will be taken from your home comfort instead of a testing centre and you will need a laptop or computer that has a webcam to sit the exam. An invigilator who has been approved by Ofqual will send you the video link on the day of your exam. If you book your functional skills exam through MME then you are able to sit your exam within 5 working days. The results take around 16 working days from sitting the exam and will be sent to you via an email. The certificate however takes 3 weeks from the day you passed your exam, so this will take longer. Around 50 to 60 hours of revisions is what we recommend before you take the exam.


Most universities and employers accept the Functional Skills Level 2 Maths Online exam due to it being a GCSE Equivalent Qualification. The cheapest provider for this exam is MME who provide the whole course for £225.
