Saturday, 22 September, where children from out of the area and
from Kings School, Rochester, will be taking the test.
The Medway Test consists of three separate papers:
- An extended writing exercise
- A mathematics paper

The tests are specifically written for Medway and are designed
to select 23 per cent of children in the year group as assessed

selected through the review process.
