Functional Skills maths qualifications are designed to equip learners with the skills they need to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work and everyday life.
To achieve the qualification, you need to sit and pass two exams. The exams can be taken at different points in the year and you can re-sit up to a maximum of 3 times in an academic year. For maths, there are 2 exams for each level – calculator and non-calculator. You will complete mock assessments in each exam before being entered for the final examination.
