Do you think you are ready to start studying Numeracy at Level 2 in either Functional Skills or Adult Numeracy? If so have a go at this self assessment. If you get more than 50% right, then you probably should be in a Level 2 class. This decision will be up to your teacher- this assessment is purely for your own benefit as it would be possible to do it lots of times and learn the answers without learning the maths! If you get a score above 80% you are probably ready to try some practice tests. If you are studying adult numeracy use the move-on website, if you are studying Functional Skills find out which exam board you college uses and visit their website to find some practice tests or past papers. If you score less than 50% don’t despair- try the Level 1 self assessment.
