Functional Skills Maths Level 2 Exam

At the York Private Tutors we offer tutoring services in Mathematics at a GCSE level to people of all ages, students and adults alike. We help those who choose our services in preparing for their Functional Skills Maths Level 2 Exam. This is a critical part in obtaining the Level 2 Maths qualification, opening the way to university courses, as well as other course routes such as apprenticeships.

What does the exam consist of?

The Functional Skills Maths Level 2 exam itself is made up of 2 sections, which are the non-calculator paper (lasting 30 minutes) and the calculator paper (lasting 1 hour 30 minutes). Which overall means the exam will last 2 hours, which will be taken all at once.

What are the subjects covered in the exam?

Each type of paper covers a variety of different subjects, changing depending on the paper you take. In general the exam itself will have a few key main topics, which are:

  • Numbers

  • Common measures

  • Shapes and spaces

  • Handing information and data

Why should I go for the Functional Skills Maths Level 2 Exam compared to other Functional Skills Exams?

While for most exam centres they are affiliated with only 1 exam board, this exam centre is affiliated with 3. So you will have more variation as each exam board has its own pros and cons. Having many choices means you can find the service that suits you perfectly. Hence why we would recommend this exam board over the others.

How can we help you pass the FS Maths Exam?

We are very familiar with the exams that the exam centre uses and will be able to use that knowledge to help prepare you as best as possible for the exam. We will tutor you on a wide range of different subjects to help ensure that you will be ready for all possible types of questions.

We can also help you with things like booking your exam
