Course & Training Providers

The A Star Equivalency equivalency tests and courses prepare learners for exams that are comparable to GCSE exams in their rigour but are more accessible and accommodating. This enables learners to study a course and then take an examination, at a time and place convenient to them. Our home examination series follow strict processes and procedures and are administered using professionally trained invigilators to ensure the integrity of the examinations are upheld.

A Star Equivalency Partners

We work with many Universities and SCITTs all around the country to help their prospective trainee teachers, nurses and other professions meet the required standards in maths, English and science. We have some partners who recommend the service with learners coming to us directly, where other Universities go for a support package that enables them to offer a paper based exam on their campus.

The key thing that our service offers to training providers is an independent way for their applicants to demonstrate the required competency in the core subjects, that will stand up to Ofsted inspection. We also have a dedicated support service for learners to take the pressure of University administration teams.
