Functional skills level 2 exams are a great way to get a qualification that is equivalent to a GCSE. It is now mandatory for learners of all ages to have a GCSE or GCSE equivalent in maths and English in order to go onto further education, including A levels and University. A GCSE or equivalent is also a requirement for all professional roles from police to apprenticeship schemes. Functional skills qualifications are the most popular due to the type of content within them which is based around more real life skills rather than the more abstract concepts such as the higher level algebra that is seen in the GCSE exams.
Whether it is maths or English, the GCSE exams can often seem very hard to some people. However, the functional skills maths level 2 and functional skills English level 2 exams look at the subjects from a real person’s perspective, allowing the person sitting the exams to better understand exactly what the question is asking. This means that people who often struggle with the questions or topics in a normal GCSE paper see benefits in sitting the functional skills exams.
