Our Functional Skills external assessment results are released 6 working days from the date an external assessment is uploaded to our online system.

Please find updated cut-off dates relating to legacy Functional Skills below. These have been extended in order to allow sufficient time for existing learners to complete outstanding assessments, given the ongoing disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
