Attendance at a Familiarisation Day is not compulsory but is strongly recommended as much more detailed information will be given about the practical arrangements on the assessment mornings. There is also the opportunity to address any issues that might occur without the added pressure of an assessment to complete.
Each Assessment Centre will run their Familiarisation Day slightly differently and they will generally be on different dates. In most cases your child will see the room or hall where they will be sitting the assessments and may also have the opportunity to meet their invigilator who will be in the room or hall to supervise the assessments. Information will also be given out regarding meeting points and specific times to ensure the assessment mornings run as smoothly as possible for everyone.
