What to do when your 10 year old refuses to study for her science test ?

Depends on what grade he/she gets on the test. If he/she passes... nothing. If he/she fails because he/she didn't study... well, again, it depends on if this is a one time thing or a pattern. A one time thing I would probably just tell my kid to study next time and see what happens next time. If it's a pattern... all electronics and other 'fun' stuff would be banned until the grade came up.

What is the consequence at school of her failing the test, and how does that affect her? She's 10, I can't imagine it will be the end of the world, but obviously you want her to do well. But maybe she has already studied and feels she has done enough? Your question is very vague.
