  2. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to achieve a recognised qualification in English Language. One subject I wish I’d gained at secondary school was English, now many years later after studying hard, I have achieved that goal. The study material from A Star Equivalency was excellent, plus any questions regarding the material was answered within a short time. For some reason I felt highly motivated to learn the English language topics; in fact, dare I say it was at times enjoyable. I am super happy to have an English qualification and all thanks to A Star Equivalency.

  3. Wonderful service, providing strong support throughout the learning journey.

  4. Reasonably designed course with 8 videos discussing the various exams questions. However, I still felt ill prepared when I sat the exam as it was materially more difficult text than in the mock papers. In addition, the online exam does not allow to mark up text and I lost valuable time to look for the required quotes. Personally, I am also quicker with my handwriting compared to typing the answer into the answer box (which also made it more difficult to ascertain the length of the answer). Combine these issues and it is no surprise that I ran out of time in the exam, even though I never had timing issues with the practice papers. Luckily, I passed anyway but at a considerably lower mark than the mocks predicted. Go for the paper version, if possible though this is quite a bit more expensive.

  7. Hello, the resources are really helpful as they match exactly with the real exam.
    When you practice the papers and you attend the online lectures, you will have a great idea about the exam.

  8. Absolutely and such great help from Joe David on the lectures! He really gives you a great understanding on what you need to do to pass without making it complicated, and by him just being generally brilliant! I got a Grade D in Secondary School but because of A Star I have passed at a Grade 7 which is the equivalent of an A!!! Thank you for everything!

  9. The exam was good but unfortunately I didn’t have any clock to remind me and the invigilator didn’t give me a hint that you have 10 minutes left. Then, he said quickly do scan the pages and this led me to do it quickly and I missed to scan question 2.
    So I’m a bit disappointed.

    • Thank you for your review.
      We do always recommend bringing a watch to keep track of your time. The time remaining is also be displayed in the bottom left of the exam screen.
      Our markers always double-check to see if questions are missing when exam questions are scanned in at the end of the exam. If we have not been in contact it will mean all your questions were successfully scanned and sent for marking.
      Best of luck with your results
