GCSE Biology test booking through MME is made straight forward. As the only equivalency test provider who is Ofqual regulated through the provision of other exams, we offer the most trusted Biology equivalency test exams.
The Biology GCSE equivalency test is usually taken by prospective trainee teachers or aspiring nurses who require a GCSE grade C or level 4 in a science related GCSE. In this circumstance, people have a number of choices from completing the full GCSE exams, to sitting an equivalency test. People can either take a GCSE science equivalency test or take a GCSE biology equivalency test to meet the requirements set out by course providers. At MME we offer both options.
The MME Biology equivalency test is a shortened version of the AQA GCSE Biology Trilogy specification. The AQA GCSE Biology past papers are a helpful tool to help with revision for the exam and can be used as GCSE Biology equivalency test sample papers. Additional revision materials such as our GCSE Biology revision cards are also a useful resource to help with preparation for the exam.
How the Exam Works
The GCSE Biology Equivalency test is a paper based exam that is invigilated online. You are sent a security sealed exam pack that you open on the exam day in front of an online invigilator. Unlike any other equivalency test provider, our invigilators are professionally trained to Ofqual standards to ensure your exam is conducted properly without issue. Once you complete the exam paper you send it back to our exam team for marking in a pre-paid envelope. The envelope is sealed on camera and a security label applied. Your results will be back within 7 working days if you have selected our standard service. If you go fast track then we guarantee the result to be turned around within 3 working days.
The exam last for 90 minutes and is out of 90 marks. The pass mark varies from paper to paper depending on the difficulty of the paper. All exams are standardised to ensure pass marks are fair. Once you have passed your Biology equivalency test we provide you with an official certificate and your achievement remains in our records indefinitely so course providers can verify your result at any time.
The MME guarantee is that we will provide the best equivalency testing service at the lowest cost to the learner.
