                 Password Winter Conference
 Following an extensive consultation with our school partners, we will be launching the revised and extended Password Maths test at our winter conference.
The conference will take place at the London Mathematical Society where there will also be an opportunity for those unfamiliar with Password testing to  nd out more about our English tests, and how our testing services are used by our partner schools.
The new Password Maths test has eight different modules set at increasing levels of dif culty. A number of these modules (typically four) are selected by each school to meet their requirements for assessing applicants to secondary education, GCSE courses, and A level and
IB programmes.
Date: Tuesday 5th December, 2017 from 2pm to 4.30pm Place: London Mathematical Society, Central London
Cream tea will be served during the afternoon. RSVP to

About Password
Since their launch in 2008, Password tests have been used by for accurate and reliable “gold standard” English language and maths assessment. The tests, designed by experts and aligned to international standards, are used overseas to facilitate student recruitment and admission, and in the UK for screening on arrival.
Secure test delivery, results and certi cates are all simply managed online eliminating the need for sending papers and scripts backwards and forwards, marking, and subsequent data input. Password’s accurate results can be relied upon for admission to secondary education, GCSE, A level and IB programmes.
Password tests are delivered by our partner schools’ own staff and trusted representatives, or by the British Council, wherever and whenever required.
Password Pupil has given King’s Ely a single-platform testing management system for years 6-13 for all our international applicants. The content is rigorous, valid and randomly generated and managing the system has proved simple with excellent customer support from the Password ELT Team. From an academic point of view the system offers a cohesive way to compare results to the CEFR and general English levels while the online writing tasks are varied and appropriate for Academic school-level English. Within the school we have become far more ef cient as Password means all of us in admissions and management can access results directly, reducing emails and phone calls on a day-to-day basis. Password has given us a bespoke, professional and effective product that exceeded our expectations and meets our international admissions needs completely.”
