GCSE Equivalence Tests

GCSE equivalence tests provide a flexible way for you to demonstrate your skills and knowledge in English language, maths and science. 

All our GCSE equivalence tests are written and marked by experienced examiners.  The cost of each test sat at the Grantham centre is £144 (including VAT).  The cost of each test sat at an approved local setting is £154 (including VAT).  Fees are payable, in full, upon booking. 

The results of your equivalence test will be provided within seven working days by telephone or email and ten working days by post.

Please get in touch for information on dates, booking forms and guidance documents.

Please note: while the majority of institutions and organisations will consider a Grade C or higher pass in an equivalence test as being equivalent to a Grade C or higher GCSE award, they are under no obligation to do so. We strongly recommended that you check that the organisation you are applying to will accept the GCSE equivalence award from Educate.

Such a straightforward process made easy by those at Educate to help you achieve what you’d like! Fast and speedy responses with a quick turn around of dispatch of the test as well as getting the results out ASAP for you. All round very impressed and would highly recommend to anyone I know in the future who might need to take the test.
