COVID-19 testing arrangements
With COVID-19 continuing to impact schools in many countries, flexibility around testing requirements will be offered to schools that require it. Contact the ISA team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
Schools may choose ONE of the following dates for the 2021-22 testing cycle.
|Test administration||Test format||Orders close||Test dates||Results delivered|
|October 2021||Online||3 September||Monday 4 October–Friday 15 October||Late November|
|February 2022||Online||5 January||Monday 7 February–Friday 18 February||Mid April|
Schools can also choose to take part in a trial test, between 17–28 January 2022. This is a good opportunity for schools to get an indication of the kind of material used in the ISA, or to have a ‘practice run’ before sitting the official test.
