At Manchester Tutor Company, we help you to prepare for functional skills English level 2 exams. The functional skills qualification is equivalent to a GCSE, which will help setting a foundation for your future career allowing you to gain entry into college and university courses, as well as making you more desirable to future employers.

The English functional skills exam that MME provides is undergone remotely, allowing you to take the exam from the comfort of your own home, and only requires a laptop with a working webcam and microphone to complete. While taking the exam, you will be overseen by an Ofqual approved invigilator who will email you with all the information you need to set up your exam. The English exam is 2 hours long and split between 2 separate papers, a reading and a writing paper each lasting 1 hour, which you will complete in one sitting. Each exam will be testing your knowledge on the English language where you will be asked to analyse various texts given to you during the exam, in addition to responding to a scenario by writing your own texts. In addition, you will also be required to complete a Speaking, Listening and Communication exam with 3 other learners which will take place separately, and will require you to present a 10 minute response to a topic provided by the invigilator in advance, which will last between 4-7 minutes and the remaining time will be spent in a question and answer session with other learners.

When you have completed your exam, you will be sent your results via email. The email will inform you whether or not you have passed, as well as your score for each of the 3 sections. If you have passed all 3 sections you will receive a certificate within 16 working days.
