Hey, I'm really struggling with the company 'Equivelanttesting.com' I have to re-take my maths GCSE for my teacher training course. My uni recommends this company, but I have sent money to them and not received a single email response to my emails and also their phone line is inaccessible. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

My exam is due tomorrow and I have a feeling it's not going ahead. Feels like a scam?

Straight up don't worry, my wife just used this company and had no problems. They are super difficult to get through to, they seem to very very strict on when they accept the applications for any specific examination. I had sent money and was freaking out because like you, I got nothing back. I eventually got through to them and they sent everything she needed to do the exam online, just keep trying you will get through eventually!

Thank you sooo much for the response. It's massively appreciated. It's always scary handing over money and not having any confirmation. I will keep persevering! Thanks again.

They were absolutely rubbish for me too. Said they hadn't received my money when it haf clearly been transferred. The woman on the phone was unbelievably rude.

I have had the same experience with this company. Nothing but stress! I took my exam on the 25th of August and have still not received my results. I have phone and emailed and was told I would receive an emailed 14 working days after and feedback in the post. I’m on the 16th working day today and still not received a thing!!!

You are allowed one piece of paper and pen in front of you during the exam but you must try and show your workings out in the box provided in the test also. I wish I would have been able to do the test for real, the old fashioned way to be honest as I found the typing the answers etc to take up a lot of the 1 hours time per exam. Hope that helps.

I phoned them at the beginning of last week and was told that the results wouldnt be ready yet because it hadn’t been the 14 working days. They said that I would receive and email with the pass/fail result and then feedback in the post. None of which I have received. Have you spoken to them? I don’t know what to do now?

Do you know how the exam was set up? Did your wife receive an email with the exam attached or did she have to screen share with the invigilator?

Exactly the same happened to me. I was promised a result by email but have received nothing. It's worrying because I only have until the end of November to pass. I wonder if there is anyone we can make a complaint to? Some sort of examination Ombudsmen?!

Hey, what was the exam set up like online? like were you allowed a spare sheet of paper for workings out or did you do all of your workings out on the online test?

Sorry to all those messages I haven't responded to. I do not come on here often. I have received nothing and zero responses to calls and emails. Really disappointing my university uses this company.
