The Medway Test
Medway Test concerns (03/10/2016)
The total score and assessment
outcomes published in Medway Test result letters is correct for all
candidates, despite a publication error which led to the
wrong extended writing score being printed in the letters to non
selective (non-grammar) pupils.
Individual scores published for maths, verbal
reasoning and extended writing papers did not add up to the total
score, however the total score stated and the assessment
outcome in the results letter are both correct.
We have thoroughly rechecked the results and
we will be re-issuing result letters today with the correct figures
to all families affected. This will not change the total score
or the assessment outcome for pupils.
The deadline for review requests has
been extended to 10am on Monday, 10 October. This
is to give parents more time to prepare, in
acknowledgement of any uncertainty this may
We are sorry for the concern and confusion
this may have caused parents at what is a very important time in
their child's education.

- Medway Test registration for September 2017
admissions is now closed.
If your child would like to be considered for a place at a
Medway grammar school, they will need to sit the Medway Test.
Once you register your child for the Medway Test, they will
sit the test and receive their results before the closing date for
secondary school applications. This is to help
you make the most informed decision you can when selecting which
schools to name on your application.
The Medway Test consists of three separate papers:
- An extended writing exercise
- A mathematics paper
- A verbal reasoning paper
The tests are specifically written for Medway and are designed
to select 23 per cent of children in the year group as suitable for
grammar school education. Up to a further 2 per
cent may be selected through the review process.
