Functional Skills English Level 2

Glasgow Tutor Company aims to help people prepare for their Functional Skills English Level 2 Exam. As it is equivalent to a GCSE, the qualification is recognised by many colleges and universities. Moreover, a GCSE equivalent is a great way to enhance your applications as organisations and education courses often require a GCSE Grade C/Level 4 in English. 

Glasgow Tutor Company and our partners at MME and Pass Functional Skills offer a range of services to prepare you for your exams, including an abundance of revision materials.

The Exam

At Glasgow Tutor Company, we work with MME and Pass Functional Skills. Both providers offer the Functional Skills English Level 2 Online Exam.

Since the exam is online, you to take the exam from the comfort of your own home, relieving any unnecessary stress from taking it at a physical centre. All you need to sit your exam is a computer with a working webcam and microphone, which will enable you to communicate with your Ofqual-approved invigilator. They will be setting up and monitoring your exam via video call. Due to it being online, you can sit the exam within 5-working days from when you organise your booking. The only day you will not be able to sit your exam is Sunday. On average, it takes 2-weeks to receive your results, but it can take up to 16 working days.

The exam board requires each learner to complete three separate exams to achieve their Functional Skills English Level 2 qualification; The Reading exam, the Writing exam, and the Speaking Listening and Communication exam. The Reading and Writing exams are sat together, each lasting an hour-long for a total of 2 hours. These two exams will test your ability to respond to various scenarios including, analysing text and creative writing. The Speaking, Listening and Communication, also known as the SLC exam, will be sat separately. For this exam, you will need to demonstrate your speaking skills by giving a presentation. The presentation needs to be on a given topic and presented to 3 other learners. The SLC exam is to assess your ability to communicate with others. To obtain your Functional Skills English Level 2 qualification, you will need to pass all three components. Once you have taken all 3 of these exams, you will receive your results within 16 working days.
