The 2014 intake information for Northern Ireland Grammar Schools requiring either the AQE or the GL Assessment have been added to our Schools Intake Information page.
The stats include the highest & lowest grades/scores accepted to gain entry into Grammar Schools in 2014 as well as the total number of children that applied for each school, how many were their 1st preference school and how many were accepted.
Peter Robinson has promised his support for efforts to bring about a single transfer test next year the Belfast Telegraph has reported.
Speaking yesterday, Mr Robinson predicted that academic selection was here to stay but a single test should replace the current two.
Mr Robinson's party is committed to selection. He lambasted the Department of Education, which has had three Sinn Fein ministers since it was set up in 1999, for failing to accommodate the wishes of the grammar schools.
Application forms are now available for parents to register their child for the AQE Common Entrance Assessment (CEA).
You can download the Registration Form from the AQE website, from an AQE Grammar School or from the AQE Office. Some Primary Schools may also be able to give you a form. Photocopies/black & white printed forms are perfectly acceptable.
The closing date for applications is the 12th of September 2014
