About Us

Equivalency Testing for Career Development is the UK’s leading GCSE equivalency testing provider.


In business since 2000, we began with just one university accepting our qualifications and recommending them to their students. Since then our reputation has grown and our qualifications are widely accepted by universities and other further educational providers.

We offer GCSE Equivalent correspondence courses and examinations in four core subjects – Mathematics,  English, Biology and Combined Science.  And our courses and examinations are available throughout the academic year,  not just in June and November.

This flexibility enables adults to return to and achieve success in learning to improve their own quality of life through personal enrichment and enhanced employability skills. We know that encouraging genuine, high-quality education can guarantee access to further and higher education and rewarding employment. We are committed to inspiring students to achieve and we strive to develop a desire to learn. It’s important to our team to encourage and support all learners to reach their full potential.

With the increasing demand for qualifications that facilitate career development, Equivalency Testing works with all professional sectors. Our courses and examinations have been designed to supplement recruitment processes for leading UK universities and can be set to accommodate any intake, or commencement of the academic programme, therefore our services are welcomed by both students and universities.

Furthermore, Equivalency Testing has established close working relationships with many schools, colleges and universities, and we are trusted to deliver consistently high-quality learning and robust, reliable results.
