At Sheffield Tutors, we look to help learners of any age achieve their functional skills qualifications. Here you can find out all the necessary information needed about the Functional Skills Maths Level 2 Exam. The qualification is equivalent to a GCSE Grade C/Level 4 in Maths, and many organisations, including universities, will accept a Functional Skills qualification.


The Functional Skills Maths Level 2 Exam is split into two parts; the non-calculator (30-minutes) and the calculator (1-Hour 30-Minutes) sections. The calculator section is made up of more marks, and while it is not imperative that you excel in both sections, it is best to be confident and prepared for your exam. The exam papers can vary in topics, and the material included can range from probability to percentages. However, the main topics focus on:

  • Common Measures
  • Using Numbers
  • Handling Information and Data
  • Shapes and Space 

If you are looking for any help with your learning, Pass Functional Skills offer a range of comprehensive revision material. Additionally, we can help you set up tutor sessions here at Sheffield Tutors.


Unlike most centres that only offer the Functional Skills Maths level 2 Exam with one exam board, the centre we recommend gives you options! Having the choice of different exam boards allows you to choose the one suited to your needs. There are pros and cons to each; therefore, you should take careful consideration when choosing. The exam boards can vary in different ways, such as the speed of your results, the speed of booking your exam, the exam date availability, and the exam set-up. 


Att Sheffield Tutors, we can help you book your exam, give you access to revision material, and organise professional tutoring!
