There are also a number of providers of GCSE equivalent resource packages that will help you prepare for your relevant exam. Where do I do my GCSE equivalent exam? This depends on a couple of things. If you have applied directly to a University, they may ask you to take the exam with them, or they may accept an exam result from an external provider such as Equivalency Testing.com. You will need to check directly with this provider to ensure your university accepts their exam result. Is the GCSE maths equivalency exam hard? The maths equivalency test can be tricky if you are not confident with maths. However, there is less content to cover than the functional skills maths level 2 and a lot less content than the full GCSE maths exam. I want to go into teaching, do I need a GCSE equivalent qualification or is the QTS enough? You will have to have passed both QTS exams and you will need either GCSE in maths or English or a GCSE equivalency qualification, such as functional skills maths.
