  2. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

    Thanks guys

  16. The overall experience was really nice. The test was well organized and went really well. Thanks to A Star Equivalency team.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. Good service

  25. The A star team were very approachable and made me feel confident in the exam process

  26. Well presented and explained throughout the course. I learnt a lot from this.

  29. Very good communication and straightforward process. Thank you

  30. I recommend A star Equivalency to everyone, lovely service, kind member of staff and very professional and organised

  31. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. Not for me

  41. All went as planned and managed to pass on the first attempt which I am chuffed about

  42. Very good and friendly customers service. I recommend doing your test here!

  44. Really ood team that helped me to prepare for the exams and gave me the materials I needed to pass

  45. Great support and helped me to gain a lot of confidence in my maths leading into my PGCE

  46. I have been with A Star for a couple of years because I either did not pass the first time around or I needed to rearrange my exam dates. I have purchased the maths and combined science courses which includes everything you need from learning materials, online tutorials to past exam papers. The staff, whether it be over the phone, Web chat and online invigilators, have all been super supportive and reassuring, when I felt stressed, panicked or when unexpected things happened in life. Learning online has worked for me with the flexibility to work around a full time job and family life. For me personally, it has been hard work but with my determination and resilience I’m hoping this year is the one for me!
