I covered the course in about 8 weeks and went straight for the exam after a bit of a wobble a couple of days before. I passed with flying colours, level 7!!! I was so relieved and happy to finally think about starting my teaching career. Thank you so much
Good service and website with resources to help you pass
Really helpful service and staff. I was so nervous having to study again after so many years but the tutorials online really helped
Excellent survice! Easy to book exams and plenty of free revision materials! Invigilators were very polite and helpful. Fast results! Would totally recommend A Star Equivalency ! Thanks !!
Service was fine for me but I had to take test again as I didn’t pass first time
Thank you so much A Star Equivalency Team! Your swift responses to all my queries and your never-ending support have been amazing in helping me through passing all three GCSE subjects. The recorded webinars and resources (Study pack and Practice papers) have been extremely helpful too. I am so glad I chose you!

Absolutely amazing. Cannot say enough nice things about A star equivalency. I really struggled to pass my maths test but A Star were very supportive and I purchased their maths course which covered all of the topics in the test which helped me immensely. I experienced technical difficulties with my laptop and they were really nice and helpful over the phone and helped me fix the tech issue and rebook my exam. Would definitely recommend.
Great online exam experience, the instruction is clear, the examiner is extremely helpful and friendly and the process is smooth. Highly recommended.
Astar have been super helpful and quick to response when I needed any help.
The exam ran smoothly and invigilator was so helpful and calm.
A star are very professional and make the process very straightforward. I would highly recommend.
It was conducted with ease.
Thank you LUCAS !! 5 stars for you, for all the guidance and information provided whenever I requested. It is Greatly APPRECIATED!! Very quick and effcient A STAR SERVICE! Thank you again.
Passed my GCSE math foundation test on my first attempt, everything went well and organised. I would like to take my English GCSE test from A ⭐️ as well. I really appreciate it.
Signed up in January for the combined science and exam package and passed my exam last week. I studied for 2 hours every day and the recorded webinars were very helpful. I definitely would not have passed without watching these. It was also useful to have the test booklets for each topic. Really happy with the service provided by A Star Equivalency.
Excellent customer service support. Course material all in an easy to follow layout. The tutorials provided are invaluable. Thank you!
Not studied for many years, I was extremely nervous but had to do it. A star helped me from beginning to end, were always polite and helped me pass my 1st time.
The exam is NOT easy, it’s not meant to be easy, it’s meant to show you have the equivalent of a GCSE understanding, so studying is essential. I highly recommend splashing the extra ££ and getting the A* course material.
Excellent service. I did both GCSE English and Maths equivalency tests within 4 days. It was the best experience I had. Prompt reminders and understanding invigilators. It was a smooth ride.
The overall experience was really nice. The test was well organized and went really well. Thanks to A Star Equivalency team.
A Star are amazing! I bought the course and exam because I felt it was more beneficial to me. The webinars I found very helpful and if I had a question, it was answered quickly by a member of the team. Cannot fault them and would recommend them to anyone.
Passed combined science on my second attempt. Only a couple of issues: one that I had a sickness bug on the day of the exam and would have had to pay a cancellation charge to cancel it and then pay for the exam again. Failed by 5 marks which wasn’t surprising. Secondly, there were at least five questions that were not in the revision pack I bought that were included in the exam. To be fair, I think this was due to them updating the revision packs and exams (I bought mine in September last year). I think I would have been an issue had I not passed second time around but luckily I did, and with a good margin.
This is my second exam with A Star and I can’t fault the process. Booking is easy and there are lots of dates and times available and at short notice. Would recommend.
Hello, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were ill on the day of your exam. Unfortunately, as the exam had been scheduled with an invigilator it would not be possible to rearrange the exam without incurring a cost.
All of the questions in the exam papers are new questions which will not have appeared in the course, however, the topics covered and the skills needed to answer the questions correctly are all covered in the course. It would not be a true exam if the same questions also appeared in the course, unfortunately.
Thank you for choosing A Star Equivalency
I have sat three exams with AStar (Maths, English and Biology) and they have all been successful. Everyone I have spoken too has been really supportive and they have responded very quickly to any queries I had. The invigilators have all been very through but without making me feel uneasy, they also explained everything very clearly. Really pleased with the overall service and wouldn’t recommend anyone else.
Brilliant service, lovley people. Passed my biology exam first time and am now off to university to do Primary education.
Did the test in 3 weeks and managed to scraped a pass but that is all I needed for my PGCE place.
Yes very good and happy with this service.
I never studied in school and found English boring but obviously realised how essential it is for everything. I had to choose a provider for equivalency testing and glad I came to this site. They have been really helpful.
The A star team were very approachable and made me feel confident in the exam process
Well presented and explained throughout the course. I learnt a lot from this.
Quick turnaround time on getting results. The past papers really helped get my head around the exam expectations.
Overall, it was a positive experience and the course was very helpful in order to pass the exam. thank you
Very good communication and straightforward process. Thank you
I recommend A star Equivalency to everyone, lovely service, kind member of staff and very professional and organised
I have taken & passed the English Language exam. Model answers and the mock exam papers were really helpful and I was able to revise in depth. Although, if I should point it out, model answers are exclusive to the final question 6 and for the rest of the questions there is just a guideline as to how to write the best answer possible as indicated in mark scheme. There isn’t much point for me now as I got the grade I need for application to UCL, which is what I’m happy about, but it would help a lot for future students if there were ‘full length’ model answers for the rest of the questions 2, 3, 4, 5 and not just partial answers in mark scheme – except question 1 of course since that is a multiple choice question.
AStar team is excellent, supported me from coursework till exams. My emails and phone calls were answered very quickly. Evaluation of two English mocks papers helped me prepared e better for the exams and got the results very quickly with feedback. Very happy to pass for the first time and now I have taken Biology course.
Thank a lot A Star Team . I highly recommend A Star Equivalency.

The maths test was a little tricky but got there in the end with some perseverance and a few late night revision sessions
Good website and revision materials
Wanted to go into teaching and this was my last barrier which I had to overcome. Managed to do it and going into primary shorlty. I am so excited 🙂
Very detailed and comprehensive course pack. Amazing tutorials. I passed my exam in first attempt.
The maths equivalency test was a daunting prospect to say the least but managed to get through it by the skin on my teeth. A pass is a pass and that is all that matters
The biology is stuff you would have done in school but I can’t remember that 15 years on! I had to study quite a bit but as I got into it the facts started to stack up and make a lot of sense.
Not for me
All went as planned and managed to pass on the first attempt which I am chuffed about
Very good and friendly customers service. I recommend doing your test here!
