PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE ONLY TWO REASONS FOR TAKING THE KENT TESTS AFTER THE DUE DATE:
1) YOUR CHILD IS ILL FOR ONE OR BOTH TESTS AND THIS IS CONFIRMED BY A DOCTOR'S LETTER;
2) YOU MOVE INTO KENT AFTER 1 JULY AND BEFORE 14 DECEMBER 2011.
OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL MARCH AND SUBMIT AN APPLICATION TO INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS THROUGH THE IN YEAR ADMISSION PROCESS WHO WILL ARRANGE TESTING (Contact KCC admissions to confirm process).
from the above looks like the options are
1. we could apply ooa by Jul, in area if we move before
2. apply within area if move after Jul and before 14 Dec 2012
or 3. apply to individual schools from March 2013
Do all 3 have a right of appeal? I know 1. does
Are there any negatives to any of these options? I know 1. ooa route is harder
Still don't know if we did 1 if we can change the address once we move so DD would be classed in area after we move but maybe thats in 2
So if anyone has any feedback on this that can help? but I feel better now knowing there are options and I will call KCC after easter so I am clear what options there are
following the good advice given I will make sure to prepare my DD for them just in case.
*If anyone knows a west london based tutor that is experienced with kent grammar schools system or a tutor that can help us online to do diy preparation
