    I currently have 6 weeks to prepare and sit the ET Maths Equivalent test to enable me acces onto a teacher training course. Has anybody sat this recently that could shed some light, would be much appreciated!

    Hi, I did this twice in order to go onto teacher training and had a really positive experience with it. It's well worth it, make sure you practise on old papers as much as you can, it really helps. Good luck!

    OP, have you a C (4) @ GCSE in maths?

    Or is this something you take instead of?

    It is something you take if you want to get onto a teaching course but do not have a GCSE at C or above. Some providers will arrange for you to sit the test with them (at a cost of course) or you may have to sit it in London at an equivalency centre.
    It is better to get a GCSE if you have the time. Online IGCSEs are a good option as you can still sit them in January or June. There are various online providers but cloudlearn is a good bet. They have started working with ITT providers such as Bradford College so that you can sit them on the providers premises.
