Practice number papers for Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2 on number topics for the new reformed functional skills specification with pearson edexcel. Each one is tailored for the level with non calculator and calculator papers including mark schemes. Good for assessing student progress. E3 is out of 27. Level 1 is out of 34 and the Level 2 is out of 36. For a pass mark I would aim for students to gain 60% of marks for L1 and L2. 66% of marks on E3. I would advise, 20 minutes for non calc and 45 minutes for calculator paper. This has been made alongside the specification and practice papers however it is completely my own work and I would use this as an assessment tool rather than an indication of these being similar to the real exams.
