Arrangements for the Kent 11 plus test, including the timing of the test, are a matter for Kent County Council to decide.

The Department recognises admission authorities may have concerns about the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on arrangements for selection tests for selective schools. We are keeping the situation under review and will provide advice to the sector in due course.
