Sixth Form Assessment Tests on Same day?!

Hello,
So after visiting 5 London schools for prospective entry into Sixth form for DS, we decide to apply to our top 3, only to find out that every single of them offer the entrance tests on the same day! Has anybody had the same experience? How best to address this issue with the schools? Thank you for any recommendations.

Ring the schools and mention it - there are probably a few cases of this. The schools might be aware of this and have a day allotted in case of similar situations.
DD is applying to 3 schools and they're on consecutive days - not as bad, but she's really stressed out now - she doesn't want to miss that much school!

Thanks almostfinished. Spoke to the schools and one very kindly offered another date while another one gave us a resonant NO (don't give a s... attitude). So i guess the choice was that much easier. :-)
