Summative tests

Pathway 1

Pathway 2
You can take the summative tests as many times as you like but will only be issued a certificate on the first attempt. The second test will not be revealed unless you score 60% or more on the first test.
If you are applying for QTLS and you already have a Level 2 qualification that is more than 5 years old, you can use the certificate you gain here as evidence for your QTLS workbook. To find out more about QTLS click here.
Functional Skills accreditation
If you want to take a Functional Skills test, we have linked to a number of organisations that are able to accommodate external candidates. Depending on the test centre you choose, you will be directed to the relevant practice tests. A list of centres where you can take an ondemand test can be found here.
