That Blue Square Thing

Heart Touch Exercises

I haven't taught Functional ICT for a few years now and was still quite surprised to find out that it was still going. A lot of the help sheets here are aimed at older versions of Office software, but the key ideas should still be vaguely helpful.

These 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...
