Medway Test results will be sent on Tuesday 3 October 2023.

If you registered online you will be sent an email after 10am on results day.

We cannot guarantee the time you will receive your email, as this will depend on your email provider.

We have no control over emails once they are sent. Check your junk or spam folders if you have not received your results in your inbox. 

If you registered on paper, you will be sent a letter by first class post on results day.

We cannot give out test scores over the phone. If you have not received your child's result by 5 October 2023, email

Details the results will include

The results will give you:

  • your child’s total score
  • where to find a breakdown of the scores for each paper
  • a decision on if your child is assessed as suitable for a grammar or non-grammar
  • details of what you need to do next.

If your child has been assessed as suitable for grammar, it does not guarantee them a grammar school place. Like other schools, grammar schools can get more applications than they have places for. If this happens, the schools must use their oversubscription criteria to decide who can be offered places. You can read the schools' oversubscription criteria for more information.

What we cannot provide

Medway Council is unable to provide the following:

  • raw scores
  • percentages
  • scores for each test paper
  • pass mark or percentage required for each test
  • the highest score achieved for each paper
  • the overall lowest/highest score achieved
  • the standardisation calculation

This information is commercially sensitive and exempt from Section 43 (1) & (2) of the Freedom of Information Act.

Section 43(1) provides an exemption from disclosure for information which is a trade secret. 

Section 43(2) exempts information whose disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any legal person (an individual, a company, the public authority itself or any other legal entity). 

What to do after you get your results

If your child was assessed as grammar, please read the grammar assessed information sheet

If your child was assessed as non-grammar, please read the non-grammar assessed information sheet

If your child was assessed as non-grammar and you're unhappy with the result of the test, you can request a review of your child’s school work.

You must make sure you submit your school application by 31 October. If you live in Medway, you can apply using the parent portal.
