My daughter sat the test today in Lancashire. Seemed like a complete shambles! The exam crashed at the beginning and then she spent 2 and a half hours in the room while 3 teachers and an invigilator tried multiple numbers for Oxford, documented the crashing program, tried to find an IT workaround. After two and a half hours Oxford sent a PDF exam and she had to sit it feeling already exhausted and frazzled. The invigilator was furious, and documented everything that happened. The teacher is writing a report/appeal too. It seems like the exam was okay for some people, for others it glitched during and for others it never worked at all and they’ve had to spend 5 hours+ in a room and not get any lunch effectively. I’d presume Oxford will either have to throw the whole exam out or somehow figure out a fair way to assess who gets to the interview stage. It just seemed a real mess!
