There is more information, including guidance notes, on the AQE's 2020 Registration page

Below is the full announcement on the AQE's website.

AQE REGISTRATION UPDATE – 22nd April 2020

"This is a very uncertain time for everyone involved in education, not least for parents and pupils. AQE is endeavouring to provide clarity to P6 pupils and parents about the arrangements for the tests which are scheduled to take place during the next academic year.

The AQE's Registration is due to open on Wednesday 29th April 2020 for applications from parents of P6 children who will sit the AQE assessments in the Autumn. AQE Limited is having ongoing discussions with key stakeholders to ensure that the best possible provision is made for applicants and, for this reason, the date of registration opening may be delayed slightly.

Due to the circumstances caused by the continuing disruption of lockdown, AQE is moving completely to an online application process this year. It is hoped that the process will simplify the application procedure and will enable parents to upload electronic photographs, scanned birth certificates and pay online. Detailed information can be found on the Registration Section of this website, here. The online form will go live on the date registration opens.

Schools, parents and pupils should continue to prepare for the assessments in the home environment. Please keep checking the AQE website for updates which will also be sent to Primary Schools."
