Are you looking for a quick and efficient way to learn critical, transferable maths skills that’ll help you take on further education, employment and everyday life like a champ? If so, our Functional Skills Level 2 ideally develops all those essential work-related, problem-solving and situational maths ‘skills for life’ everyone needs to succeed in the real world. Equivalent to GCSE Maths, you gain knowledge and understanding of practical maths skills that are applicable to various everyday contexts and situations.
One major benefit of Functional Skills Maths is that it prepares you for life after study. Whereas GCSE test academic ability, functional skills give you the chance to learn and practise practical skills that all employers are currently looking for. A breadth of colleges and universities also accept and trust them – comparing them to GCSE. Better yet, functional skills are written in a way that’s easier to interpret and they’re quicker to achieve. You can expect to learn all the main aspects of Maths. From organising numerical data into tables or charts to drawing simple diagrams, recognising number systems like fractions, and calculating the area of shapes.
Strong Maths and English skills are super important in today’s world. Therefore, we recommend grouping your Functional Skills Maths Level 2 with a Functional Skills English Level 2. Get the best of both worlds with two essential qualifications that’ll give you a great head start in life. To make sure you achieve your goal, you’ll be given strong tutor support and 4 practice exam papers before you sit your final, required exam at one of our centres.

My personal tutor Kerry was excellent and very helpful with both the fast turnaround time in which my mock exams were marked and also with her comments on the mock papers, she was also very fast in responding to any questions that I had.
I had a conditional offer for uni in September but needed to get my FS Maths. I was in a panic, I didn’t know where to go or what to do and that coupled with the fact that maths was never my strongest subject, I was a bit of a mess. I began googling. Oxbridge literally could not have been nicer or more accommodating, within a day I had my materials, and an email from my tutor. My questions were answered quickly, my practice papers were marked quickly and even though I was pressuring her into being able to take the exam she knew I wasn’t ready and relayed that info to me. I think for a business this is amazing because I literally would have kept sitting that exam every day if I could. A few weeks later I took the exam and passed; I’d never been so relieved I actually cried when I got my results. Thank you so much for all of your help I will always be so grateful to Oxbridge.
I sat my exams with you after completing the Functional skills maths. Delighted to have passed first time.
One step closer to my nursing degree with Oxbridge!

My personal tutor was excellent and very helpful with both the fast turnaround time in which my mock exams were marked and in responding to any questions that I had. The final exam is held in a very professional and calm environment, the Oxbridge staff were very friendly and supportive which is exactly what you want in that situation
