Hi
Writing just for info.

I was given a conditional offer from UCL for PGCE maths and had to sit in English equivalency test.
Though I bought 3 books but the best were Aqa unseen poetry and Mr bruff English lit.
I found Mr.Bruff videos on YouTube very helpful and for poetry BBC bitesize was great for sample questions.
And I passed the test with level 8 💃

Hi! Congratulations! I have my exam this Saturday, and I'm worried about time...Can I ask you how much did you write for each of the reading questions? And for poems? Because I'm scared I won't write enough, but also that I'll run out of time.
Also, how long did it take to get your results back?

Hi I noticed you have done your biology equivalency. Did you do this with equivalency testing? If so could you please let me know what sort of things are in the exam. I have 6 weeks to do the exam and really unsure on what to revise
Thanks

I paid £150 for the exam last year. £30 non-refundable deposit and paid rest on the day. I could have paid an additional £300 for course material but i chose to study myself and passed with grade 7. I had to email to them to get the info and application form.

I did the single biology which is based on edexcel material. The combined is based on AQA Higher. This info is found on the equivalencytesting website when you look at the course you are interested in.

For the combined i recommend this book:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/17890857..._nO1dFb61R1RJV

Its the same type book for single biology, just the edexcel version. I focused on the questions at the end of each chapter and did a couple past papers that they sent to me. Past papers can be found online too.

Unsure what your question is re word count, i did not do the course they offered if this is what you are referring too. Let me know if you have other queries.

Good luck!
