Pupils should have only pens or pencils. They should not have rubbers, rulers, calculators or any mathematical equipment. Access to paper for working out answers is not allowed. 2. Ensure that each pupil has an answer sheet. Tell the children to write their name and school in the box at the top of the answer sheet. 3. Ensure the pupils understand that: they must complete the test on their own without copying or discussing questions with other pupils they will be told how long they have to answer each question and that the time given will increase from 5 to 10 to 15 seconds as the test progresses through the three sections for some of the questions, the information they will need is included in or beside the answer box on the pupil answer sheet they are not allowed to use a calculator or any other mathematical equipment if they want to change their answer, they should put a cross through their first answer. They are not allowed to rub out any answers they should answer as many questions as they can. If they find a question too difficult, they should put a cross in the answer box, and wait for the next question the small box to the right of each answer box is for the marker’s use only they will not be allowed to ask any questions once the test has started. 4. You must have access to a clock or watch that measures accurately in seconds. 5. Read out the following script, using exactly these words: Listen carefully to the instructions I am going to give you. When I have finished reading them, I will answer any questions. However, you will not be able to ask any questions once the test has begun. I will start by reading a practice question. Then I am going to ask you 20 questions for the test. On your sheet there is an answer box for each question, where you should write the answer to the question and nothing else. You should work out the answer to each question in your head, but you may jot things down outside the answer box if this helps you. Do not try to write down your calculations because this will waste time and you may miss the next question. For some of the questions, important information is already written down for you on the sheet. I will read out each question twice. Listen carefully both times. You will then have time to work out your answer. If you cannot work out an answer, put a cross in the answer box. If you make a mistake, cross out the wrong answer and write the correct answer next to it. There are some easy and some harder questions, so don’t be put off if you cannot answer a question.

Read out the following: Here is the practice question to show you what to do. I will read the question twice, and you will have 5 seconds to work out the answer and write it in the answer box. Add twenty to the number on your answer sheet. Repeat the question. Add twenty to the number on your answer sheet. Wait five seconds (measured accurately using a clock or watch), then read out the following: Now put down your pen or pencil. 8. Ensure that the pupils have correctly placed their answers to the practice question on their answer sheets. Remind the pupils that, for some questions, information is provided in or beside the answer box. When they are ready to begin the test, tell the pupils that you will not be able to answer any further questions, or interrupt the test, once you have started reading the questions. 9. The questions are given on pages 4 and 5 of this booklet. The questions must be read out exactly as written. Start by stating the question number, then read each question twice before leaving the 5-, 10- or 15-second response time. These timings must be strictly adhered to. 10. At the end of the test, tell the pupils to put down their pens or pencils, then collect their answer sheets.
