    The name is different.
    Nothing is really different about them, they are worth exactly the same which is not a lot.
    Yes, you also get a certificate.

    It's important to know that although you may be told they are equal to GCSE in reality they are not.

    Yea. Functional skills/key skills level 2 is supposedly equal to a single GCSE at C grade.
    I can't comment on the format of the certificate without checking but yea, pretty much the same.
