Outgoing Functional Skills and AQA Certificate specifications

Friday 6 Sep 2019

Functional Skills English and Maths

November 2019 is the final opportunity for students to sit our outgoing Functional Skills specifications in English (4720, 4725) and Maths (4367, 4368).

Students sitting these specifications for the first time need to have been registered for funding with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) by 31 August 2019 to be eligible.

We’ll monitor entries to identify students who haven’t been entered for these qualifications in a previous series and we will contact you to check whether they meet this requirement.

The first opportunity to sit the new specifications will be in January 2020.

AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Maths

The final assessment for AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Maths (8360) was June 2019. If you’re entering students for the summer 2020 assessments you’ll need to follow the new (8365) specification.
