Functional Skills English Level 2 Online Course

Online Course

As part of the Pass Functional Skills English Level 2 Online Exam and course package, you will also gain access to our online learning tool. This course covers a variety of topics including punctuation, spelling and grammar, and also includes a 1 hour session with one of our expert functional skills tutors. This online course covers the same curriculum as AQA, City & Guilds and Edexcel, so the learning is highly relevant and applicable.

Mock Exams

Included in the online course are 2 mock exams for you to take, which we will then mark. These mock exams will not contribute to your final grade, but will help you gauge your strong and weak areas to help you prepare for your upcoming exam. By completing these mock exams, you will also get a feel for the structure of the exam so you can work on a plan for how you are going to tackle the real thing.

Revision Cards

We also include a pack of Functional Skills English revision cards with every purchase of the course. These will be sent to you via the postal service. These cards have been designed with condensing the curriculum information down into bite sized chunks to help solidify information in your head.

Functional Skills English Level 2 Online Exam FAQs

Once your exam date has arrived, you will be emailed by one of our invigilators inviting you to a video call. The invigilator will help you to set up your exam and explain anything that you may be unclear about. You will then sit the exam while the invigilator monitors your progress. Or if you select one of the other exam boards then you will set up for a video recorded exam with specific instructions to follow.

If your course provider or employer is asking you for a GCSE equivalent or a level 2 in English, then yes, this will certainly fulfil that requirement.

Once you have completed your exam, you should receive your results within a couple of weeks.

If you fail the exam, you can always resit the exam. We also offer a support service for our learners who are wanting to resit. If you have selected the course option then the resit is free.

Yes, a level 2 qualification is equivalent to that of a GCSE grade C or level 4. It is accepted by employers and Universities alike.

There are 3 separate sections you will need to complete, each lasting different amounts of time. The timings for these are:

  • Reading – 1 Hour
  • Writing – 1 Hour
  • Speaking, Listening and Communication –  1 Hour

The pass mark for each paper can vary to compensate for the varying difficulty of each paper. Generally speaking, the pass mark is lower if the paper is harder.

There are Mock Papers included in the Online Course provided in the Functional Skills English Level 2 Exam and Course pack.

  7. I was not looking forward to these exams but had to pass my level 2 for an access course. It def wasn’t what I was expecting but it worked out in the end. I would use the service again, but hopefully won’t need to.

  8. The cheapest online level 2 English exam I could find anywhere and I did my research. The exam is split into 3 bits, reading, writing and the speaking exam. Make sure you revise the reading and writing and do the mock papers they give you, it really helps.

  19. I did my exam with another provider and it was a disaster, no support or help all they wanted was to get more money out of me. This pass functional skills one was totally different. I did the exam on its own but still got help with free mock papers and assessment to help me learn.
