    Hi everyone,

    I'm due to start my PGCE in September 2012 and thought to start preparing for the QTS skills tests in maths and literacy. Have you started to practise and if yes, where from, what books or websites, please?
    I'm doing Primary Education with Community Languages by the way in Bedford.

    Thank you.

    Hi there again,

    I've just found a link where there are the online tests, here it is if anyone is looking for them.

    http://www.education.gov.uk/QTS/Nume...nt_engine.html

    However, I don't know why but on my laptop I can only see half of the page, so even though it is working, I am not able to do the test as I cannot see the graphs or tables.

    Anybody has any ideas why this might be? I don't have a scrolling down option, nothing.

    Thank you.

    Hi Zedes,

    Just to let you know that when posting links, your post has to be moderated first (to make sure links aren't advertising anything or are potentially harmful) - so you don't need to keep re-posting (it's going through, don't worry!)

    Thanks!

    Ive noticed this problem too. I tried to do a literacy test this morning, and could only see half the page. Very frustrating!!

    If you press F11 it makes the screen bigger. (It took me ages to work that out!)

    Thanks dude, that helps alot! I also found that viewing the tests using the Google Chrome browser showed more of the text on screen.
