    Hiya, im pretty new to all this, I just found out I have testing for a SCITT course but they have said I will be have 4 tests

    mental aritmatic
    short written maths
    short english correction
    short science paper

    its only scheduled for 2 hours including a presentation by them about the course

    has anyone else had anything like this yet as im really worried its going to be difficult as I have not done any of these for 15 years

    I did tests for Secondary SCITT, the maths (it was billed as mental arithmetic but the questions were written down) was effectively lots of fraction-decimal conversions, percentages, that kind of thing. Data handling so you can produce stats about your class I presume (though we all know Excel is there for that!). If you do a quick search for practice QTS Skills tests you can practise with those and anything else will be easier I guess? For English I had a couple of comprehension type tests, and a fill-in-the-punctuation test. And no science- I presume you're applying for primary?
