    Hi has anyone say the science equivalency ? I’m about to sit mine in the next few hours

    How did your exam go? Did you do Biology or the combined science?

    Is the exam paper based or on a computer and was it multiple choice or short answers?

    I did the IGCSE this summer but if I don't get the C, I'll do the equivalency test.

    Hi there,
    I did mine yesterday. Questions are both fill in blanks, multiple choice, but many more require written logical answers.
    I would recommend to do it via equivalencytesting.com. The exam is also paper-based. Hope this helps

    Great, thanks! I'm hoping I've passed the GCSE but if not, the equivalency test seems like the best way forward. Did you find the exam reasonable?

    Hi. I’m planning on doing my equivalency soon but I am pretty nervous because I don’t know if it’ll be hard as the GCSE or IGCSE. For those who have done it , Could anyone post up the format or even an examples of the question. Please

    How was equivalency testing? I can't find a maths date for any time soon! It's so frustrating

    Also whats the best revision for the test?? What exam specification is it (OCR, Edexcel etc..)? Did anyone pay the £350 for the marked homework, if so is it worth it or should i just revise myself??

    Hi Mozza8989, congrats on passing!

    Please can you give me some quick advice, should I do the 16 week assignment course which equivalencytesting.com offers or should I just pay the £150 for the exam and revise myself??

    If you could please reply I would be extremely grateful.

    I didn't do with equivalency testing in the end. I reckon it depends on how confident you are at the subject. Try and get it done as early as possible, I stupidly left mine last minute

    Ok thanks! How did you do yours in the end? Did you manage to pass? And did you revise yourself or use a personal tutor? And yea I’m aiming to take mine in January so gives me time to retake.
