STA marking scheme error

The Standards and Testing Agency has identified an error in the marking scheme for one of the literacy skills tests for teacher training. We are aware that this has caused at least a small number of candidates to fail when they should have passed.

Candidates who the Standard and Testing Agency know have failed their literacy test due to the error will be contacted. 

If you took a literacy skills test since 2014 and would like to check if this issue affected you, you can contact the Department for Education on Contact Us
