About the GCSE Equivalency Tests
GCSE Equivalency tests are now more common than ever with the GCSE exams becoming more difficult and the fact that having a GCSE to grade C or level 4 is now mandatory for all universities and further education routes. Whether it is the English, Science or maths equivalency test providers you are searching for, we can help. Due to GCSE exams being cancelled, the equivalency tests are more popular than ever.
We provide the following support for GCSE Equivalency tests:
GCSE Equivalency test support
Tuition in Maths, English and Science
GCSE Equivalency resources
GCSE Maths Equivalency Test
The maths equivalency test is the most popular exam with many trainee
teachers, nurses and other professionals required to pass the exam before starting their
prospective courses. At MME we offer support for both the higher and foundation equivalency
test but encourage learners to opt for the foundation simply because it is a shorter course
and most find it easier to pass. From fractions to algebra, there are a number of different
topic areas to master so make sure you spend your revision time wisely and start as early as
possible, too many learners leave it until the last minute,
Through MME you can access resources, practice tests and tuition to help you prepare for and pass your exam.

that tests the core knowledge required to pass a GCSE English language exam. The test is
usually taken by prospective trainee teachers as well as others looking to gain access onto
university courses such as midwifery. Through our English equivalency testing service you
can access practice papers and other resources as well as book a specialist tutor.
As with all of our equivalency tests we recommend A Star Equivalency for the full course and exam.
GCSE Science Equivalency Test
The GCSE equivalency test for Science consists of one exam paper that
covers GCSE biology, chemistry and physics. Each subject is worth an equal number of marks.

who need to demonstrate a good level of understanding of the curriculum. Those going into
secondary teaching, nursing or midwifery are usually only required to take the single
Biology GCSE, but please check with your course provider before committing to your revision
Our dedicated science equivalency testing service helps learners to prepare for and pass their exam through useful advice and dedicated support.
GCSE Biology Equivalency Test
The GCSE Biology equivalency test is a single exam that you can take
from home. The exam is based on the single award GCSE biology specification and we have
