Parents may be considering applying for extra time or other special arrangements for their child in the Selection Tests. There is limited public information available about the requirements set by Warwickshire County Council which they will use to determine if a child should be given extra time etc. For the Selection Test in October 2008 parents were not told whether or not their request for extra time or other special arrangements had been granted until shortly before the date of the Selection Tests.
