GCSE Maths Equivalency Test

The maths equivalency test is the most popular exam with many trainee teachers, nurses and other professionals required to pass the exam before starting their prospective courses. At MME we offer support for both the higher and foundation equivalency test but encourage learners to opt for the foundation simply because it is a shorter course and most find it easier to pass. From fractions to algebra, there are a number of different topic areas to master so make sure you spend your revision time wisely and start as early as possible, too many learners leave it until the last minute,

Through MME you can access resources, practice tests and tuition to help you prepare for and pass your exam.
