It would seem a little odd if anyone knew the book they were definitely going to use and leaked it.
How do the trials work though if they don't test questions they will put in a question bank?
The kent spec suggests that real test items will be on sale to a specific educational market - who is this? Also it suggests that questions can be ones from a bank that have been used in real tests in another area in the past.
Both of these points suggest to me that potentially some people could have an unfair educational advantage over others - far more so than tutoring for the gl assessment tests currently confers.
Ooh, I do love a conspiracy theory mystery
. I wonder what lengths people might go to...tracking down questions, sleuth-like, from other areas? Offering bribes to educational publishing staff; slipping in a few quid to choose a particular book? Maybe even getting a job in one of the publishers with a view to giving one's child a leg-up with inside information? I smell a money-making opportunity here - set up an agency offering to do it all for you. The next 'Cash for Questions' scandal perhaps?
