Functional Skills English Level 2

Sheffield Tutor Company helps people to prepare for their Functional Skills English Level 2 exams. This qualification is the equivalent of a GCSE in English. It is a necessity as many employers require at least a Grade C/Level 4 GCSE in English. Here at Sheffield Tutor Company, we can help you jump start your career in the working world. This qualification will not only assist you in job searching but is also very valued by most universities and colleges in the UK, allowing you to gain entry to your desired course.

The Exam

We work with both MME and Pass Functional Skills to offer the Functional Skills English Level 2 Exam.

The exam is online, meaning that you can sit the exam in your own home. For the exam, you need to have a computer with a working webcam and microphone. During the exam, you will need to connect to an online video call with an Ofqual-approved invigilator. The invigilator will be monitoring the exam to make sure the exam goes smoothly. Before your exam, the invigilator will send you a link to access the video call. As it is an online exam, you can sit it within 5-working days from when you make your booking. Sunday is the only day you cannot take your exam. It takes on average 2-weeks to receive your results, but it can take up to 16 working days. The certificate for your qualification is sent 3-weeks after you pass.

The Functional Skills English Level 2 qualification requires you to complete three separate exams; Reading, Writing, and a Speaking Listening and Communicating, or SLC exam. All of these exams will be testing your abilities and knowledge of the English language. The first two, Reading and Writing, will be taken in one sitting, each lasting 1 hour each for a total of 2 hours. These will be testing your abilities to analyse various texts and respond to them, as well as writing your own long-form response to a given scenario. The SLC exam will take place separately from the other two. You will be getting assessed alongside other learners on your ability to communicate. To achieve your qualification, you will need to pass all three aspects of the Functional Skills English Level 2 Exam.
