No major surprise about the date but the selection test date of Friday 28th September 2018 is showing in the latest school calendar http://www.newsteadwood.bromley.sch.uk/ ... 018-19.pdf

The formal admission documents haven’t been posted yet so this could be subject to change.

My DD told me that a girl in her class came into school late today because she 'sat the Newstead test'. When I said I didn't think so as the test was back in September she told me she'd seen her candidate number. Do they have test sessions in January - perhaps for those who were ill on the day of the main test? Seems a little unfair to hold the test so long after the main test, if so...

I presume they have to have at least one back up date but it isn’t advertised. It would be just as unfair to deny them an opportunity for a test if they couldn’t make the first through no fault of their own, but then why so long after I don’t know, a broken arm at six to eight weeks to heal as a random example takes us to end of November. As NW age standardise the scores then the age at test will have a small bearing.

I know there are a lot of Indie tests at this time of year, and even this week, so it seems an odd day to have it at first thought but I am not aware of any local girls or co-ed Independent school exam clashes but haven’t looked on the websites to double check. DD wasn’t aware of any tests going on but as the school tend to do them in small rooms then it wouldn’t have been obvious to the student body generally unless they were in a room nearby and had the ‘exams quiet’ sign up.
