*NEW* Highfield Functional Skills Qualification in Mathematics at Level 1 (Reformed)


Functional skills qualifications are being reformed. As a result of this Highfield Qualifications is pleased to announce that it plans to make the reformed Highfield Functional Skills Qualification in Mathematics at Level 1 available for first registration on 1 September 2019.

In light of this, the Highfield Functional Skills Qualification in Mathematics Level 1 (601/7675/1) will be withdrawn. The last date learners can be registered on this qualification is 31 August 2019.

This qualification consists of 2 mandatory components. Learners must complete both the Non-Calculator and Calculator written examinations that are set, marked and moderated by Highfield. The assessments will test a learner’s representing, analysing and interpreting skills using numbers, geometry and statistics in realistic contexts.

Mathematics examinations are available on demand in either on screen or paper-based format.

Practice Examinations

Our practice examinations are available to support learners in their preparation for their examination of functional skills and are available in both paper-based and on-screen formats. On-screen practice examinations help learners to familiarise themselves with the various features of the system such as how to navigate through the exam, opening and resizing pop-up images and text, using the graph creator tool and using the method calculator, etc. Please however note that on-screen practice examinations are for familiarisation purposes only and responses cannot be saved. Therefore, if a tutor would like to mark the learner’s responses they must review the learner’s answers prior to the learner finishing the examination.
