Birmingham Tutor Company helps people to prepare for functional skills English level 2 exams. This functional skills qualification is a GCSE equivalent, which will be very useful when applying for a job in the UK or when applying for a university course. If you do not have a GCSE in English when applying for an apprenticeship in the UK you will be required to get a level 2 qualification before starting.
This functional skills online exam is provided by MME and is preformed remotely, which means that as long as you have access to a computer or laptop with a working webcam and microphone with a stable internet connection you will be able to take the exam. Prior to the exam, you will be sent an invitation via email to an online video call by one of our Ofqual-approved invigilators, where they will go through the various checks they need to conduct in order to allow you onto the exam. After you have been set up, the invigilator will monitor you throughout the exam in order to make sure the exam goes as smoothly as possible.
You will need to complete 3 separate exams to earn the functional skills English qualification: Reading, Writing and the SLC. The Reading and Writing exams are sat back-to-back, each taking 1 hour for a total of 2 hours. The SLC, or Speaking, Listening and Communication exam, will take place separately and you will be giving a presentation to the invigilator and 3 other learners.
At Birmingham Tutor Company, we recommend that you do between 50 and 60 hours of revision before sitting the exams.

These revision materials can be found on the MME website, and include a variety of past papers and revision cards to help you learn the content and pass your exams.
