Important information for customers:

We will be retiring our Optional Tests Set A at the end of the academic year. You should be able to buy the tests as usual until the end of July, although some of the Teacher Guides may run out of stock. If you require a Teacher Guide that is currently out of stock, please contact your local Assessment Consultant.

Please note, these tests cannot be used alongside NTS Assessments. If you’d like to learn more, please contact your local Assessment Consultant. ​
