Entry Requirements

There are no prior entry requirements for these courses. You will sit a diagnostic assessment as part of the application process for this course. This will allow us to identify which is the appropriate level of course for you.


There are two assessments for these courses: a calculator paper and a non-calculator paper.  Exams at Entry Level 3 are paper based; exams at Level 1 and Level 2 are online.


Please bring a notebook and pen to lessons.  You will need to have access to a device such as a laptop or iPad to access virtual lessons and online teaching materials.


These courses are delivered via blended learning. This means that your course will include a mixture of classroom and remote live lessons along with online learning materials, that you will work through in your own time.


Learners may progress on to the next level Functional Skills course or GCSE Maths.
