GCSE Equivalency Tests

When looking to go into teaching, nursing, midwifery, or a PGCE without the correct qualifications. You will need to find a reputable company that provides the appropriate exams and qualifications that meet those requirements. An excellent company that provides this would be A Star Equivalency. Who offer multiple types of GCSE Equivalency tests. These tests come in:

  • Maths

  • English

  • Science

  • Biology

All of which will be at a GCSE level.


The exams will be based on the current subject curriculum used in schools and designed to meet the exam board’s specifications. The only difference between retaking your GCSEs completely and taking an A Star Equivalency exam is that the GCSE route takes a lot longer. It also benefits from being able to be taken from the comfort of your own home


You may be wondering why we could recommend A Star Equivalency above the rest of the providers. This is because it is one of only 2 that offer qualifications that are accepted by all major university providers. Making it one of the best choices out of the rest of the providers.


Once your desired exams are booked, the provider will send you instructions that will tell you everything you need to know about the day of your exam. On the day of the exam itself, you will be provided with one of A Star Equivalency’s highly trained invigilators, who will guide you through the process. Ensuring that the exam goes well and that it is taken in exam conditions.


Once the exam has been taken, you will just need to wait for your results, which you should receive around 2 weeks after taking the exam. Don’t worry if you failed! A Star Equivalency offers the option to resit, so you can try again.
