What is a GCSE equivalency test?

The GCSE equivalency tests are exams that are often taken by people who haven’t obtained a GCSE grade C or level 4 in maths, English or science, or have lost their GCSE certificates.

Yes you will need a GCSE in maths and English or a GCSE Equivalency in order to get into teaching. MME can help you to prepare and pass your GCSE equivalency test so that you can start your teacher training course.

The pass mark varies from exam to exam and it really does depend on the level of difficult of the paper you sit. Often the pass mark is between 50-60% but this can change at any time.

MME are the only provider of GCSE equivalency test past papers. Because these are so expensive to produce we do require a small fee for each exam paper set, but these will be delivered to your door for you to practise from home.

The GCSE equivalency tests contain fewer topics and therefore some people perceive them to be easier to pass than the full GCSE examinations.

Yes, we have GCSE Equivalency tests online as well as GCSE equivalency tests past papers for our students to use.

Since Covid, most test providers have now gone online. MME was the first service to offer online GCSE equivalency tests and we are now the most popular provider of these exams due to the low cost and excellent service we provide.

As others have said, I can not fault this service. I was dreading my maths equivalency test as I hadn't done maths in years but using the free worksheets and revision notes I got there.

I did not expect it to be this pain free. Exceptional service from start to finish. I had to do my gcse maths equivalency test because I couldn't find my certificate from like 15 years ago, ridiculous! Anyway I was told I had to do it and in less than a month I did my revision, sat the test and got my certificate.

Smashed it! Do not like maths in the slightest, hated it as school and hate it now. The maths equivalency test isn't as bad but still some tricky stuff to learn. I had to do a resit and passed it second time with the extra support I was given. Good website that does actually help.

Outstanding service. They provided all the revision materials free of charge, I made one payment, revised for 3 weeks, selected the time of my exam and it all went far smoother than I was expecting. I really aren't a fan of maths and so to get this done without too much hassle or expense was a massive relief.

The best maths equivalency testing service there is! My uni recommended another provider who I couldn't get hold of so I asked to use mme and they agreed this was fine. The resources were free and really helpful. The exam itself was okay, glad I did the revision and managed to scrape a pass.

Amazing service with such supportive staff. I passed the first time and the process was so easy! This was the only thing stopping me from pursuing my career as a teacher after graduating from my postgrad qualification. So glad its finally over. The staff including Oliver went over and beyond in supporting me during this process. I would recommended this service to anyone. Thank you!

Amazing service! The turn around for both marking my exam and giving me the certificate was amazing, they completely catered to my needs and understood who urgent getting my results back in time was. The exam paper arrived in good time, and everyone I dealt with was patient, kind, professional and helpful. Can't recommend them enough

At last I can speak to someone about my test! I tried another service who never even responded to me. MME returned my email straight away and then called me and explained how the exam worked and what I needed to revise. I am so pleased I passed, thank you so much!

Absolutely brilliant service. I was so worried about starting my teacher training course as I didn't have my GCSE maths to grade C or above. I contacted MME and they talked me through the exam process, how to revise and even provided all of these materials for free. I revised hard for the exam and passed first time. If you need to pass a GCSE maths equivalency test then I would highly recommend this service.

I detest maths and wouldn't mind if I never saw another calculation in my life!!! I want to become a drama teacher and will have no need to use maths ever in my professional career so it is ridiculous I had to pass this test. I was dreading revising for it but this site made that easy and spared me the additional expense of resources. I personally stuck with the free worksheets and only paid for the booking fee which fortunately paid off. The exam isn't easy I am not going to lie, but if you can bring yourself to work through the practice questions and put the time in then you will get through it, I promise!!!

Easy to book and easy to pass in my opinion. I failed my GCSE maths due to health reasons and I wasn't able to retake it this time round due to Covid so I sat this instead and glad that I did. Hassle free to be honest.

So pleased I used MME. I contacted another provider which my Uni recommended but they didn't get back to me, there were no exam dates to choose from and they wanted to charge over £300 for the materials and exam. I paid £140 through this service and got all the materials for free. My advice is, if you are unsure about your Uni's recommendation then ask, I did, they accepted MME and I saved my self nearly £200 in the process.

I had to do both my English and Maths equivalency tests and this MME helped me to book both tests. I did the mats one through this site and it was cheaper, then the English through another service. Very helpful and nice people that helped me.

My daughter needed to pass her GCSE maths equivalency test so that she could continue her ambition of becoming a reception teacher. This service explained to me (the bill payer) exactly how the exam process worked and how my daughter could revise using the free resources on the website. We paid the £139.99, she revised for 5 weeks solidly and I am pleased to say she passed first time and we have now have the certificate. The relief is immense! We are very happy with the MME service and will recommend to others.
