  12. The exam went smoothly and the invigillators were supportive in throughouly explaining the whole exam process.
    I had access to sample papers to ensure I could practice well in advance. Overall outstanding service of the team.
    My exams were done via Zoom and the only thing I could fault is the technical side of this type of examination. I much prefer paper based rather than having to lose time and wait while the is computer overloading.

  13. The exams was ok.. the only problem is less time, I think an hour to finish a writing that ask you to create a particular thing, u need to think and arrange it nicely but one hour for me is not enough.

    Alida - Functional Skills English Level 2 Exam (verified owner)
  14. I definitely recommend mathsmadeeasy and even when I failed my functional skills in maths, they were willing to help me with lessons. They genuinely care and wanted me to excel. They don’t care about the money and customer service is fab unlike some training providers I know who don’t answer calls after collecting money.
