Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone has completed the science equivalency test with A Star Teachers? If so, did you find the multiple choice exam easy or hard? And what resources did you use to study? Thanks.

It's intermediate only and it's only calculator part of the questions so be mindful, I've just finished an equivalency test up North! It went okay, I hope pass!!! 🙏 I will know soon x

Wow! That's a whole load of studying. I've bought the recommended CGP revision book and workbook. But really only been using the revision guide. I've also had confirmation that the exam is multiple choice. But I just want an idea of how tricky it might be. I need this before teacher training in September .😑

Same here. I want this sorted before September. I'm watching YouTube videos for all the topics and going through the recommended books aswell.

Hey, I haven't completed Astars yet! I'm still taking their booster classes which have been beneficial. I went to the North of England instead to sit an equivalency test as my uni are willing to accept this and it was the earliest date, I could find! I should get the results in the next few days Are you starting in September, what are your remaining conditions and btw, it's Edexcel for Astars x

Im currently revising the Science too, freaking out a little since I NEED to pass it by September too. I am so happy that you said its multiple choice! Im doing okay on the BBC revision tests but was nervous going over the Edexcel papers since they werent multiple choice. Theres just soooo much to go over! Its just the two hour test with all three of them combined right?

Im going to go down to London and sit mine in two weeks. My course starts earlier since Im on the school direct route.

Would you recommend getting the revision guide then? Also, how long has everyone been revising for ? Im in sheer panic mode that I havent got long at all to do this!

Yeah I'm on the schools direct route too. I've only really been using the revision guide so yes would recommend it. I also googled "Edexcel multiple choice exam" and found a thread here from 2007 that has sample questions. I confirmed with the test coordinator that it is multiple choice. I totally understand your worry. I've been stressing about the content and really need this for September. The thought of re sitting whilst training does t bear thinking about and tbh I don't even know if this will be an option.
