  1. All 3 parts of the qualification have their different challenges but if you do the work it will pay off. I never tried in school as I didn’t see the point, it is only when you need a qualification does it become relevant.

  2. I was so so so worried about my functional skills maths level 2 exam. The thought of doing it online also freaked me out a bit. In the end I had nothng to worry about.

    Mary Appleby
  3. I am not good with computers and even worse with maths so the thought of me doing an online exam a few months back would have sounded crazy to me but having been let down in college I thought it was worth a go to get it done quickly. The online aspect is straight forward, just follow the instructions. The maths you just need to learn. Good luck everyone.

    Lisa Thompson
  4. It was not as hard as I had feared. Having failed maths at school and not done anything other than basic percentages for about 15 years I thought it was going to be impossible for me to pass in 8 weeks. I did it in 6, only just passed but it doesn’t say that on the certificate. Relived I didn’t have to resit.

    H Powell
  5. Maths is something I have never got on with and I was dreading this exam. It all went well in the end.

    Taira Bashir
  6. I found the service extremely positive and reassuring. I thought I was one of few people that really struggled with maths but to hear that thousands of people take this qualification every month reassured me that I’m not stupid! I didn’t work hard in school and needed to get this for my job. Thankfully I got through it in a matter of weeks and can now move on with my career.

  7. fully endorse using pass functional skills for your maths level 2 exam. Doing it online at home makes the whole process much less stressful.

    A Kritil
  8. I failed and people told me this was going to be an easy test. I wouldn’t do this exam without revising as it isn’t as easy as people make out.

    G Hanson
  9. I find maths quite tricky, especially things like algebra and proportion topics. Functional skills was definitely an easier option than GCSE.

    Kane Herbet
  10. The calculator section was easy than the first section. I got the percentage questions fully correct but struggled with some other topics. Still passed but glad I did my revision. Good luck to everyone else still preparing.
