Functional Skills Level 2 English Past Papers

At Skipton Tutors it is our goal to help every student develop their English skills in preparation for their Functional Skills English exam. One of the most effective ways to revise is through the aid of past paper practice. In this article, we will provide you with an overview of how to access the English Level 2 past papers and how to effectively use them as part of your comprehensive revision plan.


The Functional Skills English Level 2 past papers can be found on a number of different websites. One important thing to note is that when accessing these papers, you should only use the exams from 2019 onwards as the specification has since been reformed. What this means is that any exam papers before then may no longer be as relevant. Regardless of the exam board, they all follow the same curriculum and will cover the same topics. The main difference will only be in the exam format and time allotment for each section. Nonetheless, they are all valuable resources for your revision.


Furthermore, it is also important to remember that students should only consider starting past paper practice once they are confident with the subject matter. Otherwise, this can easily impact their confidence in a negative way. Once you have completed your revision in each topic area of the exam, then you are ready to complete your first Functional Skills English Level 2 past paper. We recommend that you attempt this in timed conditions, which will allow you to mimic the real exam experience. Remember, time management is extremely important especially during exam preparation. After completing each past paper, you can mark them using the Mark Schemes provided or alternatively, you can ask a tutor to do this for you. This is a good way to identify which topics you would need to brush up on in your revision. To begin with, do not focus too much on the pass mark as it can be overwhelming, but instead use the past papers as a way to help you improve. As you complete a number of mocks, you should see an evident improvement in your English skills as you approach your exam date.
