Majority of employers and all higher education courses require a Maths GCSE Grade C/Level 4 or a  GCSE Equivalent Qualification to gain access to them. The Functional Skills Maths Level 2 qualification is accepted since it is a GCSE Equivalent Qualification.


London Tutor Company offers learners sessions for the online functional skills exam individually. We have chosen to work with MME who provides the exam and resources. The exam is online so you won’t have to travel to a testing centre, instead you sit it in your house. You will need a device such as a laptop or computer that lets you access the webcam since the invigilator will need to watch the exam take place. The invigilator that will send the link to you via an email and watch the exam take place, has been approved by Ofqual. The exam takes 2 hours in total but some people finish before the time and you can take the exam on any day but Sunday. If you want to book your exam with MME, within 5 working days you can sit the exam. You will receive your results around 2 to 3 weeks but no later than 16 working days and this will also be sent to you via an email. Once your exam has been passed, it takes 3 weeks from then for your certificate to arrive. Around 50-60 hours of revision for this exam is recommended to have a good understanding of all of the topics.
