Functional Skills English Level 2

York Maths Tutors helps people to prepare for Functional Skills English Level 2. By taking this exam, you will have the opportunity to earn a GCSE equivalent qualification in English which is highly desirable to both employers and universities across the UK. Many employers look to employ those who specifically have GCSE equivalents in both Maths and English, so by obtaining this qualification you significantly increase your chances of getting a job in the UK. In addition, many universities and colleges have entry requirements for their courses that require GCSE equivalents, so this qualification will certainly fulfil that role. 

The Functional Skills English Level 2 Online Exam that both our partners at MME and Pass Functional Skills provide offer you the opportunity to sit the online exam. This means that you are able to take the exam from anywhere you wish, as long as you have access to a computer with a working webcam and microphone and a stable internet connection. On the day of the exam, you will be emailed by an Ofqual-approved invigilator who will invite you to a video call to walk you through the setup of the exam.

The exam itself is in 3 parts; Reading, Writing and SLC. You will be required to pass all 3 parts to earn the qualification. Each of the 3 parts of the exam will be testing your knowledge and abilities of the English language in different ways. The first two parts, the Reading and Writing, will be sat back-to-back at 1 hour each for a total of 2 hours. The SLC, or the Speaking Listening and Communication, is the third part and will be sat with up to 3 other learners and will take roughly 1 hour. We recommend that you spend around 50-60 hours revising for your exams before sitting them. If you are struggling as to what to revise, we can recommend the Functional Skills English Level 2 Course provided by our partners, which covers all the content of the curriculum. Additionally, you can also access an abundance of Functional Skills Past Papers that vary in both level and exam board. You can find English past papers on the Functional Skills English Level 2 Past Papers page.
