Are there any GCSE equivalent qualifications?

If you are looking to resit maths and English GCSE exams, then you may want to consider an equivalent qualification, such as a functional skills level 2 qualification, or a GCSE equivalency test. Both have their own benefits, with the main benefits over a GCSE for both being that they can be taken online, at multiple timeslots throughout the year.

You can take either a maths or English functional skills instead of your GCSE resit. The level 2 qualifications are accepted by all major UK universities, apprenticeship providers and employers as equivalent to a grade 4 or C. The qualifications are more accessible than a traditional GCSE, as there is less content to learn and the exam questions are usually based on real world scenarios. If you are looking for an adult GCSE exam at grade 4 level, then the functional skills may be a better option.

Alternatively, you can take a GCSE equivalency exam in maths, English, science or biology. These are shorter than traditional GCSE exams, and you can achieve higher than a grade 4 too, so are ideal for learners looking for those higher grades. These are accepted by the majority of UK universities and providers, and are generally the best option for pursuing a career in teaching.
