In light of the recent cancellation of the AQE test, we are currently reviewing our Admissions Criteria for 2021. These will be sent to the Education Authority by the end of this week, and we will provide an update on our website on Tuesday 26 January.
Please see below a statement from AQE released on Thursday 14th January 2021:
The Board of Directors of AQE Limited would like to announce that it has cancelled the Common Entrance Assessment due to be held on Saturday 27th February 2021. It is with regret that due to the uncertainties surrounding the easing of coronavirus restrictions, it will no longer be possible for AQE Limited to provide candidates with the opportunity to sit any papers during this academic year. We understand that this news will cause uncertainty and distress to many people but AQE limited was unable to get clarity as to the timescale and scope of the easing of the current restrictions. We apologise for the uncertainty caused in recent days and reaffirm that the safety of candidates and staff remains AQE Limited’s first priority. We offer all P7 pupils best wishes as they consider their choices for post-primary transfer.
