Secondary Transfer Testing and Grammar schools 2018

4. Illness on Secondary Transfer Test day and Late Tests

It is very important that children do not take the Secondary Transfer Test if they are unwell.

If there are supported exceptional circumstances why a child cannot attend testing at the grammar school on 14 September 2017 then one alternative date will be offered. A clash of test date with that of another school is not an exceptional reason. Children who do not attend testing at the grammar school on the day of the Secondary Transfer Test without a reasonable explanation will automatically be withdrawn from the testing process.

If your child does not attend testing at the grammar school due to illness, you will need to submit a letter from your GP to confirm that your child was not well enough to take the test.

Children attending Buckinghamshire LA and Partner schools, who are ill on the dates of the tests, will always be offered alternative dates on which to take the Preparation and Secondary Transfer tests.

If a child becomes unwell during testing, and is unable to complete the test, it is not possible for that test paper to be re-sat at a later date.
