Course Reviews


The Level 1 course is a fundamental level of proficiency in English, Maths, and ICT that is equivalent to a GCSE grade 1 to 3 (formerly G to D grades). It is a nationally recognised qualification in the UK that provides an alternative to GCSEs for individuals who still need to pass these subjects during their secondary education.

The functional maths course is comparatively easier than the GCSE math and additionally the value of it is also more than the GCSE math course. However, you should select the course that suits your needs, as both courses provide different values at different places.

A Functional skills course develops for the one who wants to learn Math, English and ICT for individual achievement in daily work place and on the other hand, GCSE focuses on theories and tests your academic ability.
