How to use the Functional Skills English L1 Course:

These tutorials will also explain and walk you through everything you need to know.

Practice Questions

Feel free to move onto the practice questions after you decide you have an understanding of all the different language features and put your hard work to the test. The smart system will save and keep track of your answers and progress.

Exam Questions

Once you are comfortable answering the practice questions, move on to the exam style questions! These questions will help you to test yourself in a more exam style setting. As mentioned before, the smart system will mark your answers as well and also give you feedback on any possible mistakes you could have made.


One of the features we also provide with Pass Functional Skills is that you are given the correct answers to each question as well! We also provide you with reasons as to why the answer is correct. Most online English courses don’t actually give you the answers to any exam or practice questions, here at Pass Functional Skills, we do!

Frequently Asked Questions

It will! An increasingly high number of students taking and completing our level 1 English course are passing. As long as the work is put in, you will see immense improvement and join the vast majority that pass their level 1 exam first time!

Most likely, our level 1 course is accepted by all of the major exam boards, including NCFE, City & Guilds, AQA, Open Awards, and more. As all of these exam boards follow the level 1 curriculum that the government sets, their main specifications and our own are very much alike, making our course apt for all.

As this is one of our most asked questions, unfortunately we are unable to give a specific answer as all learners require a different amount of time to prepare themselves to pass the exam. We recommend 50 hours of study time for every learner. Some learners need as little as 5 hours of revision but some may need even more than the recommended 50 hours! Feel free to spend as much time as you’d like studying and preparing for the exam as we also offer the self-study course which allows you to do everything in your own time.

For all learners we give a standard of 12 months of access to our level 1 course, however we can extend this amount of time if you request as you can keep it as long as you need it!

Yes it does! Our course goes over all the criteria for the level 1 English exam and is made to help all learners pass first time.
