  3. I recently completed the English GCSE equivalency test with A Star Equivalency, and my experience has been nothing short of excellent. From the moment I engaged with their services, I found their customer service team to be incredibly supportive and helpful. They were always ready to assist, providing clear, concise information and ensuring I had everything I needed to prepare for and take the exam with confidence.The process of taking the exam itself was straightforward and well-organized, reflecting the high standards of service A Star Equivalency commits to. The exam environment was conducive to concentrating and performing at my best, which I greatly appreciated.

  6. Communication was great when doing the exam. This is probably the best equivalency test out there.

  7. Finally passed third time! It is difficult and time consuming, but doing practise papers and using the course materials properly really made a difference to my third try. I think I rushed the first two times and didn’t revise effectively. I would definitely give yourself a year as there’s a lot to learn. Also, the papers and activity booklets really show you how to answer questions and you learn how to get your marks, rather than trying to overload with useless notes like I did before! It’s definitely been worth it and I got a higher grade than I needed, bonus!

  9. The maths course is great, the concepts are explained in an easy to understand manner and it’s so convenient having the course available to study anytime. You can learn at your own pace and plenty of practice questions are provided to reenforce the learning.

  10. After having 2 failed attempts, I made sure that in my third I used the activity booklets, and it made all the difference. I passed with flying colours! It’s taken me a year to pass, but it’s been worth it! Make sure you do lots of practise papers!

  16. I did the maths foundation online exam
    on Tuesday and it was very easy to set up and upload answers at the end. Seamless in fact. Just need to do well in the exam now…fingers crossed.

  17. The whole process has been brilliant! I have already retook my maths with A star and that was a bit of a struggle didn’t pass the first time but with the purchased course I then successfully passed with a higher C! Last week I had to retake my biology as I’m going for A primary teacher I didn’t have much time to study for the exam but I really enjoy biology so actually enjoyed the process of revising and found out this morning I passed with an A! I can’t fault A star the examiners are brilliant and really put your mind at ease! The customer service is flawless! The whole process really is a lovely experience if only school exams were the same experience. Thank you so much guys now I can get on with obtaining my QTS!

  18. I bought GCSE Maths equivalency with the course. Course was really I really helpful. It has every single topic covered and with detail. A Star said if we study 75 hours we can pass the exam. I studied more than that because the course material they was tempting to practice specially flash cards were the key. I had my exam yesterday on 16th February 2024. I found the exam hard. But I manage to revise all topics in my head what I had already practice. It went very well. Now waiting for the results. I would say book A star equivalency with a course. There are online tutors. And videos of all topics too.

  19. A heartfelt thank you to all staff at A Star Equivalency. Not only do they respond to inquiries promptly, but they also provide constructed feedback for mock exams. I cannot recommend A Star Equivalency enough!

  20. Had a great experience with A Star Equivalency, was very worried before taking the biology exam but I revised non-stop.

  25. It was a great experience having done my exam with A Star. They were always asking if I had questions or needed help.On the day of the exam, the instructor was very kind and willing to answer my questions too. They were very punctual with the results and certificate. As an international student, I completely recommend it.

  26. Earlier I was very much worried about my exam,but when invigilator Jessica started the exam my 50% fear faded away,her behaviour was so supportive,she was so nice I have no words to express my gratitude to her and A Star Equivalency ..they are ever ready to support,I would like to book the combined science test too…
    A huge thanks to A Star Equivalency…

  27. The biology was fine as was the physics, i just struggled to get my head around the chemistry. The course workbooks did really help. I passed on the second go after I actually did some work. Make sure you revise which is obvious to say, but I thought my general knowledge of science would be enough, it wasn’t!

  28. I have taken the GCSE English Equivalency Test and opted to purchase the English course. The resources provided were extremely useful. The customer care worked well and answered my queries promptly. I would definitely recommend this provider.

  38. I would like to thank Joe Davis for having provided excellent tuition lessons for GCSE English. Without his help and tips, it would have been hard to pass. Thanks A Star.

  39. It was worth the money – I paid for the revision pack and took the 6 mocks before taking my exam. Two of those were marked within days by A Star Equivalency which was incredibly useful as it gave me detailed feedback and helped me achieve an A+ on the actual test day!

  40. Good service. Invigilator was very polite and helpful before the exam and gave friendly reminders. Waiting for results.

  41. I just booked my GCSE biology with A star through A star web page chat. The A star representor Mr. Josh helped me to book the course and with payment. I am really pleased with the way he listens to my queries patiently. It was easy, fast and smooth way to book. Really Mr. Josh has full knowledge that’s why he was able to assist. I would recommend A star specially Mr. Josh’s support.
