Last year the letters seem to arrive on the Tuesday before the Saturday of the test; i.e. next week.

A 09:30 Start a week on Saturday seems a reasonable assumption.

Regards
SVE

Please be patient :lol:

As School need to know CAF choice from a council, it shouldn't be that fast.
I think, TGS will not send out Stage 2 invitation to someone doesn't list them on CAF even their DD got passed.

I wonder if TGS would have this data in time?

LAs have until 14 Nov to upload this data. I suppose that TGS would be inviting all stage 1 successful candidates for 16 Nov test.

No.
As TGS letter has following statement, TGS won't invite all successful candidates but successful candidates who named TGS on CAF.

We will be posting out details of the arrangements for the Stage Two Test once we have received confirmation from local authority
that you have named the school on your Common Application Form.
...
Should you decide not to apply to the school by not naming us on Common Application Form,
you will not receive an invitaion to sit the Stage Two Test and we will consider **** to have withdrawn from the selection process...

Just received Stage 2 letter from TGS.
It says:

If you named TGS on your CAF and submitted it on time, you have made a valid application to the school. Unfortunately, this info will not be shared with the school before the Stage 2 Test. We would, however, expect you to be coming to the Stage 2 test only if you have named the school on your CAF. Please note that only candidates who have made a valid application to the TGS will have their Stage 2 test marked.

Could you please let me know durations and order of the Stage2 tests and what time we have to be there?

Haven't received my letter yet, hope it will come today but maybe not. We are planning to do a mock test tomorrow for DD so some idea as to how the real one is structured would be really helpful.

Corioborio-Girls have to arrive between 9.30-9.40. Do not arrive earlier. First test will be at 10.00am. Collect at 1pm and no earlier. School will close immediately after the test, so clearly no second sitting.
Three tests assessing: Numeracy and Literacy.
Reading 50 mins
Maths 40 mins
Writing 40 mins
Order of tests not specified.
