What is the pass mark for the Medway Test?

The Medway Test is designed to assess and select 23% of the children in the year group to go to a grammar school in Medway (with a further 2% selected through the review process). The minimum score is not determined until the test has been sat and the scores have been calculated. The following formula is used to calculate the total weighted score for each child:

(extended writing standardised score x 2) + (mathematics standardised score x 2) + (verbal reasoning standardised score x 1) = total weighted score

In 2022, the minimum score was 487.
