That Blue Square Thing

Heart Touch Exercises

Melted keyboard imageThese tasks came from an exam in 2008. They give you a good idea of the range of functional skills tasks you could face.

The tasks are divided into Level 2 (more complex) and Level 1 (easier) tasks. It would be worth trying both sets if you're going to do a Level 2 exam. If you're going to do a Level 1 exam them the Presentation Task for Level 2 might be worth looking at.

The style of Functional Skills exams might have changed a little since these were live tasks, but the key nature of the tasks hasn't changed that much. These are still a good place to start from...
