Hi.I sat my equivalency English GCSE exam with ET last Saturday 21/07/18.I don't think i did well though. I am still waiting for my results. Do you know how long do we need to wait for the results? I am a Maths person and want to teach Maths for secondary schools. I wasn't educated in this country thus i need to do equivalency GCSE for maths and english. I have met all the requirements for PGCE so far. I passed numeracy and literacy skill tests and also equivalency GCSE in Maths. I am just worried that i didn't pass my English

Hi, I will be taking mines at the end of the month. I'm super nervous, can you give me an idea what was on the exam paper and I've heard there's a poem section.

hi.
The first section- There were two texts on outdoor activities for children. The first one was more like a report to authorities on why it is important to introduce more outdoor lessons in schools. The second one was directed to parents informing them what outdoor activities the Nathional Health Trust offers for all families to keep them healthy and occupied.
The next section was writing. One question was to write about your memorable journey. The next question was to write a report to the gov. I didn’t choose this one.
The last section was to analyse and compare two poems : ‘Nettle’ and ‘Aquarium’

I passed it but waited one week for the results. I got a certificate sent by post. No email or text about the result so I was really stressed.
Good luck! You can do it

Hi to everyone, Thank you very much for that useful information, AgnesL1, it's been very helpful! I am going to sit this exam in December this year and I am a little bit worried about it. The reason being is that they sent me two past exam papers. However, these papers were from 2011 and 2012. I know that this equivalency exams are based on the AQA GCSE exam papers. Unfortunately, the AQA tests have changed since 2015 in two relevant aspects: the texts for the reading are literary texts and not

Hi there, so the poems you had are both unseen ones? it's very strange as the poems in the exam I sat today are all from the love cluster. The exam advice ET sent through email said there will be an unseen poem actually!

I don't really remember much now, the exam was over 3 months ago. The poems are all from the love cluster, I did not encounter any unseen ones. But I think you should expect and prepare for unseen poems as this is what the ET guidance suggests. The writing section is really very easy. As long as you prepare well for the poems, you should pass! I passed the exam with B.
