    Thank you

  5. I had to pass my GCSE English equivalency test as a condition for my teacher training. I contacted A-Star Equivalency team as I am more comfortable in Paper based exam and it’s only them providing this opportunity. I booked my exam with them and it was very easy. Anytime I needed any help they promptly responded. I didn’t want to leave any chance to pass it so I bought their course as well. The mocks paper in the course were very helpful and I revised from some other resources. The examination process was very authentic. I passed my exam in first attempt with distinction 😃. I am very pleased with their service and will definitely recommend to others.

  6. Exceptional service and so so relieved I have passed.

  7. Anyone who has to do the gcse biology equivalency then a star is the service to help you.

  8. Words can not describe how supportive the team is to help me achieve my GCSE Maths.
    I’m confident and provided with all the resources I need.

  12. 5 star service from this company.
    I needed a Maths, English and science GCSE for entry into a PGCE course. They were very friendly from start of booking to finish. Any problems with bookings or exam dates were dealt with promptly.

  13. 5/5 from me

  14. I can’t say I’m enjoying the course haha! The course is in depth and there is plenty of support available if you need it.
    I’m currently studying hard, haven’t taken the exam yet

  15. I contacted 2 equivalency test websites for this science exam and this was the only one that got back to me. I am pleased they did as they have helped me to get set up and ready for the exam. Excellent service.

  16. As others have said I can not fault the service. Would definitely recommend to others getting into teaching.

  17. Just got my results and couldn’t be happier. thank you so much for helping me to pass the science equivalency test.

  18. I agree with the other reviews in terms of how helpful the team were and the fact that the test isn’t as bad as you fear as long as you do the work of course.

  19. I did the paper based Biology test at home. Wasn’t sure how they would invigilate it but it worked really well as I normally get too nervous with exams but being at home eased my anxiety. This was my last barrier and now I have overcome it I can get on with my dream career.

  20. Very helpful staff

  21. I will leave a review for others and recommend this equivalency service.

  22. GCSE English equivalency test is something I had to pass to become a teacher. I did well with my revision and thankfully I passed within 2 months.

  23. Didn’t like science at school but it didn’t seem as bad this time round. The guys at a star equivalency testing helped me to get on top of the materials and i found the input helpful. Now to tackle the challenges of my PGCE.

  24. pleased to recommend A Star equivalency to others.

  25. outstanding support from my first phone call to results day. Maths is not my strongest subject, to put it bluntly, I am terrible!!! The course materials really helped me to understand the concepts that I then transferred into marks in my exam. Although I still dislike the subject, my hatred has definitely softened a little now that I have passed.

  26. Satisfied with the support but still don’t know why the Uni is making people like me do this when I already have a degree.

  27. Having to study after many many years off took me back to my school days which is somewhere that none of us want to go. The work I did paid off as I passed the biology test and got onto my course. The people at A star are very helpful with the tutorials and support.

  28. If you revise for the equivalency test then you have a good chance of passing. I turned up with no prep first time and it was my own fault that I just missed out. A bit of study time and the second attempt went well. Will recommend to others.

  29. Excellent service that helped me to get onto my course. Thank you to David and the team.

  30. I didn’t pass on my first go at it. They did say get the course to help but I shouldn’t have to as it is suppose to be an easy test isn’t it?????

  31. It was a very simple process from booking to taking the exam. Excellent service.

  32. Thank you thank you!!! passed first time.

  33. I had to do the science equivalency test to get onto my course. This service really helped me prepare for my exam and pass it.

  34. good equivalency test service

  35. More than satisfied with this service. I was initially advised to use another equivalency testing provider but they were almost double the cost. A star were great from the start and took some of the stress out of a really stressful thing.

  36. Very good English equivalency test service.

  37. The GCSE biology test is okay as long as you do the revision! I spent a few weeks really studying hard and thankfully it worked out as planned.

  38. Yes happy to leave and review and recommend the A star equivalency testing service

  39. Excellent support with the exam. Everyone I spoke to and emailed were helpful with fast responses. Results came back within 24 hours as I went for fast track option. Excllent service.

  40. Will recommend to others looking to get into teaching and need an english equivalency

  41. The best thing I have ever done!!!! I am now about to start my teaching career.

  42. happy with the equivalency testing service.

  43. Brilliant service

  44. The revision guide had everything in and the cards were also good. The exam wasn’t as hard as I was expecting and I got a level 5 in the end which I am chuffed about.

  45. Not easy but worth doing if you want to get onto your course. Thank you for all the help.

  46. Having never got my GCSE science 20 years ago! I had to go back to get my QTS. This service was helpful and the course materials invaluable with my prep. The exam seemed okay and I scrapped through with a level 4, but that is all I needed. 5 out of 5 from me.

  47. I had to do this to get onto my PGCE in September. I decided to do it early and get it out of the way. The A Star equivalency exams team were really helpful, got me set up with my exam and I passed first go! Great service, happy to recommend to others.

  48. Passed on my very first attempt thanks to the amazing revision materials I was sent. It may seem a little expensive at first but you get everything you need and the lessons were also useful. Definitely worth the spend to make sure you avoid a resit but more importantly I got onto my course!!!!!!!

  49. Would definitely recommend this equivalency testing provider over the other I used, much cheaper. I found the lessons useful but would have been nice to get more freebies.

  50. I can’t thank this service enough for all the help and support provided with my biology equivalency test.
