Maths Assessment


Free Maths assessment. You will need the results of this if you don’t have access to your GCSE results for entry to the BTEC Level 3 Engineering.

You will need to do the level 3 version if you need proof to access the HNC Engineering.

We use the BKSB Functional Skills Maths tool to assess your maths ability up to and including Level 2. You need to be at Level 2 before you can proceed on to an engineering level 3 course, where you will learn level 3 maths.
