    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.

    Don't bother I did mine lvl 2 MATHS AND ENGLISH. been told there worth nothing at all unis I rang there more to help you up the C.V Que. I now have wasted two months. I'm applying for college to do my normal Gcse in math and English then applying for the further education/access programme. But they shouldnt be able to lie. Or at lest be honest and say nope these mean nothing in higher education aspects. Don't waste your time apply to a local well know college!!.
    I was going to enroll for IT. But not any more. As there not getting me anywhere. Good luck
