At Liverpool Tutor Company, we help people to prepare for City and Guilds functional skills exams. One of the ways that we help people prepare for their City and Guilds Functional Skills exams is by assembling the finest revision materials on offer for our learners. With the help of MME, we have amassed an array of past papers for all of our learners to use, free of charge. Over 20 past papers can be found on the MME website, varying in both subject and level, to best suit your needs. Hopefully, these will prove useful in helping you understand what the real exam will be like.

The City and Guilds Functional Skills exam is very similar to other Functional Skills exams. The exam follows the same curriculum that was set out by the UK government, so you don’t have to learn any new content. Also, City and Guilds provide both Maths and English at levels 1 and 2, to give you options to suit your needs. The key difference with the City and Guilds Functional Skills exam is that your qualification will be awarded by City and Guilds, so if you specifically need a qualification from them, then this is the exam for you. Otherwise, you may just have a preference for what exam board you want to sit with.

Like other functional skills exams, the City and Guilds Functional Skills exam is conducted remotely, meaning that it is an online exam. This requires each learner to have access to the internet as well as a computer with a webcam and microphone. On the day of the exam, you will be invited to a video call by an invigilator who will help you set up your exam, hence the webcam and microphone.
