Register for the Medway Test

Registration for the Medway Test opens 1 June and closes 30 June 2022.

Children who are registered for the test by the deadline will be given access to a guide to help familiarise them with the format and layout of the mathematics and verbal reasoning tests.

No guide is provided for the extended writing test because children are not completing an answer sheet format that may be unfamiliar to them.

Before you register

Before you register you should speak to your child’s teacher or headteacher to see if the Medway Test and grammar school is right for them.

If a child is not working at or above their expected levels for their age, we do not recommend they take the Medway Test.

Registration for children with an education, health and care plan (EHCP)

If your child has an EHCP or a statement of special educational needs they can still sit the Medway Test. You will need to register in the same way as everyone else.

Special arrangements

If your child needs special arrangements to sit the test, you will need to register them in the same way as everyone else. Their current school must complete a form from School Services by emailing medwaytest@medway.gov.uk.

The deadline for your school to submit a special arrangement request form and evidence is Tuesday 5 July 2022. Please read our guidance on special arrangements and speak to your child’s school before this date if you think your child needs special arrangements for the Medway Test.

A child may need special arrangements if they have a disability or learning difficulty.

Any request received after the closing date cannot be considered.
