Functional Skills Maths Level 2 Exam

At Skipton Tutors we look to help students of all ages including adult learners who are studying towards a functional skills qualification. This includes those looking for help with booking their final examinations. The functional skills maths level 2 exam is the critical part of obtaining the L2 maths qualification. This qualification is needed to gain access into higher education courses such as mental health nursing as well as apprenticeship routes such as the police apprenticeship.

The level 2 maths exam is made up of 2 sections, the non-calculator and calculator parts. The calculator section is usually worth more of the overall mark. You don’t have to do well in both sections to pass but it obviously helps. You simply need to get to the required pass mark overall. The exam contains questions on 3 main topic areas which are using numbers, common measures, shapes and space and handling information and data. Each paper varies and you can get questions on anything ranging from percentages to probability.

Most of the major exam boards such as City & Guilds and Pearson (Edexcel) offer functional skills maths level 2 exams but you have to book through a registered exam centre, which can be done online. Most exam centres are only affiliated with 1 exam board but the exam centre recommended by Skipton Tutors offers 3 exam boards which gives students more choice. Each exam board has their pros and cons including speed of booking, speed of result, ease of set up, exam date availability and other factors. Having 3 boards to choose from enables students to select the one that best suits their circumstances.

Whether you are looking for support with your level 2 maths booking, or you want help in the form of professional tuition, Skipton Tutors is here to help.
