June 2010 guidance

Here is everything you'll need to know for the June 2010 single level test cycle, including the test administrators' guide, access arrangements and test entries.

The June 2010 single level tests will take place on Monday 14 June to Wednesday 16 June. All the guidance you will need about the June 2010 will be published in this section of the website at key points during the test cycle.

Test entries

Entries for the June 2010 tests can be made from Monday 22 March until Friday 23 April via the Key to Success website. The Test entries guide and frequently asked questions about entry decisions are available on the test entries page.

Access arrangements

Guidance about making access arrangements are available to download from the access arrangements page.

Test administration

Single level tests reviews service

The reviews process provides schools with the opportunity to address areas of concern with the application of the mark scheme. If school staff believe a pupil has not been awarded the level their work is entitled to in relation to the published mark scheme, the school can apply for a review. 

For the June 2010 cycle, schools will be able to apply for a review in the following subjects and components:

  • English reading
  • English writing
  • mathematics

The cost of an individual review will remain the same as the December 2009 cycle at £6.50 (per subject and component for English) and schools will only be invoiced if a review does not result in the awarding of the level. View the Guidance and the application form.


We send the single level tests bulletin to schools and local authorities involved in the pilot at key points during the test cycle, when new information is published on our website. For the June 2010 cycle, all bulletins will also be available to download from the bulletins page after they have been sent.

To receive the bulletin, send your name and school name to sltqueries@qcda.gov.uk.

Local authorities

If you're a local authority involved in the pilot, you'll need to refer to the local authority guide to single level tests.
