Important information about test dates

Your child is allocated a test date by Medway Council rather than being a parental preference. There is no alternative test date, including where the Medway Test clashes with other tests. If the Medway Test clashes with a different test you will need to decide which test your child sits.

The arranged test dates are your child’s only chance to sit the test. The test cannot be taken later.

Test date information is correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
