Hello there,

I'll sitting a maths exam in the next few months at either functional skills level 2 or entry level 3.

For anyone whom has done it at either level 2 or 3 how difficult are
the exams and what are good study tips for doing it ? Maths is my weakest point but I do enjoy it.


Are there any good revisions sites for it? Also have a English level 2 and a IT one at the same level but, am fairly confident for them. Not so much the Mathematics exam.

It is strange that you might be entered for level 2 or entry level 3. They are very very different and would require different preparation.
Level 2 is similar in difficulty to achieving a pass grade 4 in gcse foundation exams. Entry 3 is basic practical maths and arithmetic that in terms of school education you would have covered before or at the very start of secondary school. Are you sure your choice isn't entry 2 or entry 3? Or is it a choice between level 1 or level 2?

The format of the exams is very dependent on the examiner that you are entered for and the level of entry so you should try and find out more specifically what you might be doing.
