There is a rumour that all continuous writing papers from the Calderdale test will be marked this year. Don't know if it's true, but the info was from a pretty reliable source. Just so you all know!

The test in continuous writing will be completed by all pupils, but will only be taken into consideration in the case of the final 25% of places to be offered.
