Selection test in September 2015 for children transferring to secondary school in September 2016
Registration for the 2015 Bexley Selection Test has now closed. No late registrations will be accepted.
The test sessions will be on Tuesday 15 or Wednesday 16 September 2015. All registered children who attend a primary school in Bexley will sit the test on the morning of 16 September, either in their own school or in a test centre. All other children will receive a letter by 2 September detailing the time, date and location of their test session.
If you have registered your child for a selection test in another area and the other test date is on 15 or 16 September, we will allocate a different session if you let us know by emailing email@example.com by 17 July 2015. We will not allocate alternative sessions after 17 July.
The Bexley test consists of two test papers with a mixture of questions on verbal reasoning and comprehension, non verbal reasoning and mathematical reasoning. Each paper will be divided into timed sections, and instructions will be given on an audio soundtrack. Most questions are multiple choice, and all answers are marked on a separate machine-readable answer sheet. There will be a short break between the two test papers.
All parents who have registered their child for the test were sent a link to practice questions and a familiarisation booklet in their confirmation email. The test provider, CEM, does not sell past papers or practice books.
The results will be sent by first class post on 6 October to arrive on 7 October 2015.
Selection tests for children already at secondary school
Children can be admitted to grammar schools in Bexley after the start of Year 7 if vacancies arise because, for example, other children leave the school. If you would like to apply for a place at a grammar school in Bexley for your child, you should apply directly to the school.
The tests are not the same as those taken by children in the last year of primary school.
If your child is deemed selective but a place is not available at your preferred school, you will be able to request that he or she is placed on the waiting list for a place. Being deemed selective does not guarantee that a place will be offered.
For further information regarding the in year selection tests, please view the grammar school websites.
