I re-sat a GCSE instead of taking the equivalency test but others I know took the equivalency test. They tell me it wasn't too bad. They just looked at the BBC bitesize section. I know at my uni you get a couple of chances to pass.

Most university’s accept the Equivalency Test. I sat the Biology one recently. You can take just Biology or combined. I didn’t find it very difficult, studied using the CGP Edexdel book and used Bitesize a little too. Found it really helpful to answer the questions and check answers out from back of book. You receive results within a week (although this may vary).

Look it up online.

For teacher training as Primary teacher it is a prerequisite you have a GCSE C/4 in English, Maths and Science but you can do an equivalency instead to save money and time -- I did one and it wasn't too painful :-)

So did you do only one science subject ? For example, just biology
