Was going through the Q&A in http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/assets/conten ... tionsl.pdf

Answers for Questions 13 and 34 below suggests that parents will not have any idea of the content of the papers.
However, Answer for 21 says that 'A familiarisation sheet will be given to pupils to share with their parents...'.

Could some one please explain WHEN this familiarisation sheet will be given to pupils and HOW will that be shared with parents? Is it just that the child remembers the contents and shares from memory?

13. Why can’t parents see the preparation papers?
CEM does not publish any practice books of its types of tests and it wants circulation of test
materials to be kept to a minimum so as to maintain the integrity and fairness of its tests.

21. Are practice papers published in the new format? If not, when will they be released?
No. A familiarisation sheet will be given to pupils to share with their parents and the pupils will
take two preparation papers in school. Neither the grammar schools nor the local authority nor
the test provider will publish any practice papers.

34. How will you prevent leaks of information about the tests?
A number of steps are being taken. CEM will not publish any practice material for purchase by
parents. The preparation tests will not be sent home and will be collected and destroyed. The
real test materials will, as with other psychometric tests, remain confidential.

TIA.

Hi MumoftwoSD

Familiarisation sheets will be sent home. It is a very basic sample paper showing a few questions and the layout of the answer sheet.

Preparation Tests will not be issued to parents. They will be taken by the children 2 days before the real test.
