BCU Equivalency Test

BCU Equivalency Test

The BCU equivalency test is required for entrance to QTS Maths Tutor’s teacher training programme. Other colleges and teacher training courses are not included in the BCU equivalency test. There’s no way to determine if the topics covered are GCSE-level or if the pass scores are in any way connected to GCSE grades because the BCU is an internally developed exam that hasn’t been independently tested or standardised. The outcome of a BCU equivalency test is not the same as a GCSE, and it can only be used to get into BCU’s PGCE teacher training programme.

Anyone who does not have a GCSE in Math, English, or Science must take a BCU equivalency exam before enrolling in a PGCE programme.
