My child is being homeschooled in Bucks, I would like him to have the "mock" transfer test on the 10th like all the other children have. Is this possible?

I would have thought you need to phone admissions and ask.

It appears the mock test on the 10th is for children in Bucks schools only-never mind.

Have you been told this officially? According to the Transfer Testing Guidance http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/media/885105/ ... dance-.pdf, "Once registered, children attending schools outside Buckinghamshire will be invited to take the preparation tests in one of the county’s grammar schools."

Oh thank you so much for this Marylou, I will look into it again. It will be a big help for ds if he can do the preparation tests.

Thanks again

You're very welcome! :) What made you think the practice test would not be available, out of interest?

We phoned the Bucks county council and the lady said the practice transfer test was for children in Buckinghamshire schools only. I will phone again and quote from what you sent me.
