What Are the PGCE Maths and English Skills Tests?

In addition to a baccalaureate degree in your subject and a successful interview, PGCE entry requirements include successful completion of the PGCE professional skills test. This means assessments in both maths and English. The PGCE literacy and numeracy tests are the most feared and often procrastinated aspect of the PGCE requirements. That is why it is essential to make use of PGCE test practice. JobTestPrep provides PGCE skills test practice so you are well-prepared for test day.


What Is the PGCE Numeracy Test?

What Is the PGCE Literacy Test?

The PGCE literacy test includes four sections, taken one after the other: spelling, punctuation, grammar, and comprehension. This 45-question exam must be completed in 45 minutes.
