  1. I tried the different equivalency testing services and didn’t hear back from the other one for over a week. I messaged these on a Saturday and they got back to me the same day. I booked my exam and prepared in my own time and passed with certificate back all within a few weeks. All exams should be set up like this to make it easier for people to access

  2. The chem bit is hardet in my opinion or maybe that I am just not as good at it but took a while for the info to sink in. Got there in the end

  3. Thank you A Star for creating the resources which are so easy to use. As a student you just need time and dedication. I found the examiners so calm and respectful, shout out to Jess! Thank you. The whole experience is there to give you the opportunity to reach your goals required for your career progression. From the booking system to the certificate, I couldn’t have asked for a more simpler way to get things organised. The whole exam process online is straight forward, no worries of travel etc. As a student you just need to try to stay calm, study and then give it a go. I read many reviews that helped me too. Hope this helps someone. I used the other testing service but it wasn’t for me.Thanks A star – you are my A star!

  13. Did it from home with the online invigilator. It worked really well and pleased to recommend to the testing service for PGCE students

  14. Didn’t pass on my first go and they offered tuition to help but what is the point

  15. They helped me a lot to understand what i needed to do to pass the English equivalency test

  16. Good service

  19. The paper is just over 2 hours and I would say to use all of your time.

  23. Really good website and help given for the exam

  24. Passed on my second go. Just needed to get use to the format of paper I think

  25. The combined gcse test has the most work to do from what I can gather although there isn’t supposed to be more in this than the single Biology, because there are 3 different sciences it is harder to learn as less of the content links in with each other.

  26. Came to my house in a secure envelope and I had to open it on exam day in front of the camera. The exam went smoothly and all was as I had expected

  27. Brilliant service with all the help I needed to pass my maths. I was a bit annoyed that I had to do this in the first place as I have a degree and I did get my GCSE but lost my certificate and the exam board didn’t have a copy as it was a few years ago. Anyway once I accepted I had to do it, I knuckled down and passed within a few weeks

  31. All round it was a good experience or at least as good as it could be considering I was doing an exam

  32. Needed it for my primary teaching route. The course is useful and has mock papers that really help with the final test.

  33. great service and really helped to ease my nerves in the run up to my exam

  34. This test was quite tricky to prepare for but I did the work and now on my uni course which is the only thing that matters. This website was helpful and the team I spoke to on email and chat were great.

  35. I had to take GCSE Maths Foundation for university.
    I got the home-based exam, I also got the course which was really helpful. When I had questions or doubts, my emails were answered quickly!
    All in all, good experience and great customer service!
    Thank you!

  36. my examiner explained the tips very well.all of the exam time was great.

  41. Got the paper delivered to my home as wasn’t confident with the whole online thing.

  42. I called, emailed and even got them on live chat on a Saturday. I am sure they must have been a little irritated by all my questions but never showed and was always happy to help

  43. Great service and friendly team

  44. good website and course is great as it gives you everything you need in one pack

  45. I found the cells topic part the hardest to get my head around but thankfully not too much of this came up in my test and managed to scrape through

  46. Excellent service and got the help I needed to get into teaching

  47. The team was very supportive in clarifying my queries, and helped me book a test. Though the package arrived late, due to the royal mail strikes, the online recorded course helped me in understanding the pattern of the exam, and the mode of preparation. The mock tests were a good practise, and the prompt response of the team to evaluate 2 of my mock answer papers in providing critical feedback helped me in identifying the gaps, and working towards a better performance. I passed the exam with a B; of course, i expected a better grade. However, i reached the target.Thank you A Star !!
