What are the implications of tests sat on consecutive days? I have been reading old threads and came across something saying this should not happen. dd sat tests two days in a row so just wondering.

Hi Blanca

This quote is from the Head Teachers' Manual 2008 - 09, published by Bucks Admissions:

Quote:
􀂃 The tests MUST be administered in the order above (Test B24 before B25) and on separate days.

􀂃 A minimum of one clear day should be left between the tests.


If the tests were administered by the school, then it sounds very much to me as though this was done for their own convenience, as it is half term.

If, on the other hand, these were tests at a central testing venue ... :?

Why can't you sign in as Blanca? If you have forgotten your password, just send a PM to "Programmer", who will sort it out for you.

Best wishes

Hi Blanca

I suggest that you send an email to Admissions, advising them of this situation and giving the school's name. I don't imagine that they will be very happy about this transgression, and hopefully they will deal with it for future years.

Specifically, I recommend that you include your DD's name and DoB in the email, and ask Admissions to make a note on her personal file.

As always, ask for a reply, print & file. :D

S-A
