Birmingham, U.K. (Merxwire) - Almost everyone will learn English and Maths in their lives. Although some people may doubt the usefulness of obtaining these two qualifications, no one can deny the importance of these two subjects for any career or future education.

There are various ways to achieve a level 2 in English and Maths and below, we will look at some of the options:
GCSE English and Maths
GCSEs were introduced in 1988, predominantly for learners who wished to leave school at the age of 16 not wishing to further their academic studies, by way of A Levels or University degree. The intention was to create a national qualification that included more subject options. International GCSEs are the international option, and these allow learners to study in over 100 countries throughout the world gaining a valuable qualification.
Functional Skills English and Maths
Functional Skills English and Maths were introduced in 2007, initially on a three-year pilot programme, with the intention of developing qualifications that would be suitable for all learners.
