Q Does my child have to sit the Transfer Test?
A Your child does not have to sit the Transfer Test. If your child does not sit the test they will go to a secondary school of your choice.
Q What is the difference between the AQE test and the GL?
A The GL test is a mutiple choice examination. This test is taken by children wishing to gain entry to a Catholic grammar school. The AQE test is not multiple choice and is taken by children wishing to attend a non Catholic grammar school.
Q How many papers are taken by my child under each exam format?
A For AQE, your child will sit 3 papers on three different Saturday mornings. Only the best 2 tests will count towards your child's final mark. For GL your child will sit the examination on a single Saturday morning.
Q Will my child sit the examination in their own school?
A No, your child will sit the examination in one of the approved schools.
Q Can my child sit both examinations?
A Yes your child can sit both examinations giving more options for the grammar school that they can attend. This means they will sit 4 papers in total.
Q When do the results come out?
A Results for AQE and GL are sent to your home in the first week of February following the tests which are taken in November / December of the previous year.
Q My child is only 10 when they take the test. Are there any allowances made for this?
A Yes, approximately your child will be awarded 6 free marks per test due to their age.
Q When do I choose the school for my child?
A You will do this in conjunction with your child's teacher once you receive their result in February.
Q Are there any allowances made if my child is special needs?
