  2. The functional skills maths level 2 exam was 2 hours long and had non calucaltor section with a calculator part after. I found the first bit hardest but managed to get 70% overall so it didn’t matter as its just a pass or fail exam so as long as you get like 60% I think this is fine to get the certificate.
