Can anyone help. I have a lady who has complete a business studies Masters, but doesn’t have her school certificates.

I thought as much, but i wanted to be sure. Do you know if they then go on to complete their initial assessment and are working at Level 2 or higher I can then exempt them?

Where they are unable to do this then they must undertake Maths and English at L2.
