An overview of legacy practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests and resources.
Practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests
The practice National Adult Literacy and Numeracy Tests were used to help learners to prepare for the National Tests in Adult Literacy and/or Numeracy, and for the tests for Key Skills Communication and Key Skills Application of Number. The tests are no longer available as they do not reflect the requirements of the new curriculum for maths and English. You can, however, view the legacy versions here
