Functional Skills Level 2 English Past Papers

At the Ilkley Tuition,we aim to provide all of the resources we can to help you with your revision for your Functional Skills English Level 2 Exam. A good way to revise for your exam would be using Past Papers of your English Exam. Today we will be going through everything you need to know regarding Past Papers so you can get the appropriate ones, as well as how to use them as effectively as possible.


We heavily recommend getting your Functional Skills English Level 2 Past Papers from the website MME compared to other websites. This is because they have multiple different Past Papers from many different exam boards, including:

  • Edexcel

  • City and Guilds

  • NCFE

  • And so on

All of the papers are from after 2019, since the specifications for the exam were changed. So you can be assured that it will be up to date.


We recommend doing them in exam conditions while timed, this is so the conditions you are taking the Functional Skills English Level 2 Past Papers in will be as close to the actual exam experience as possible. Once you have completed one of the Past Papers, you can then use the marking scheme provided to mark the exam yourself. Useful for showing where you are making mistakes, as well as showing the correct way of answering questions. If you don’t want to mark the Past Papers yourself, that 's fine! Us here at Ilkley Tuition can mark it for you, they will then explain where you went wrong and how to improve.


We would recommend at the beginning of your revision using Past Papers that you don’t focus too much on the marks you are receiving. At the beginning you won’t be getting things perfect and you could quickly become discouraged. They should be used solely to show you where you need to improve. As you take more and more Past Papers, you will start to see a clear improvement as you do more revision and practice.
