The 2019 Bexley Selection Test is now complete, 6424 pupils have sat the test and have now received their results.

The Selective threshold has been set at 216. Candidates scoring 216 or above have been deemed Selective and are eligible to apply for a grammar school in the London Borough of Bexley. Being deemed Selective does not guarantee a place in one of our grammar schools. Candidates scoring 246 and above have been assessed as being one of the Top 180 Scorer’s and these pupils are guaranteed their choice of grammar school in Bexley. 

Once deemed selective, the score itself is irrelevant to the following admissions process. Each school has its own oversubscription criteria, and this is what determines success in gaining entry. The criteria for each school can be found in the Admission to Secondary Schools in Bexley (PDF, 6MB) booklet.

Anonymised data

In response to a number of Freedom of Information requests, we have produced the following reports to share data in an anonymised form:

  • results by Local Authority
  • results by gender
  • anonymised test scores

We will not release information such as postcodes, dates of birth or current school as this could all lead to the possible identification of individuals. We will also not provide raw scores for the entire data set, as this could prove commercially damaging to our test provider. 

Any other requests for data relating to the Bexley Selection Test should be emailed to foi@bexley.gov.uk
