Functional Skills English Entry Level 1, 2, and 3 Past Papers

Functional Skills English Entry Level 1, 2 and 3 provide a foundation to Functional Skills English Levels 1 and 2. The exams consist of a Reading section and a Writing section, and are intended to prepare you with the communication skills necessary for further study. As part of the curriculum, you will also be required to participate in a Speaking, Listening and Communication exam.

Each exam board follows the same specification, which analyses three key skills:

  • Ability to extract and deduce information from texts
  • Identification of appropriate choices of linguistic features
  • Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (which is primarily assessed in the Writing paper)

 

Each exam board’s specification can vary, however, all reading papers will test your ability to analyse sources, and the writing paper is formed of multiple-choice questions on spelling, and the creation of some longer written responses. Reading papers will allow the use of a dictionary, but writing papers will not – this is common amongst all exam boards.
