AQE Registration Update

Registration Delayed Until Thursday 14thMay 2020

In the continuing uncertainty caused by Covid-19, 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. AQE’s first priority in planning for the assessments is the health and wellbeing of the pupils and staff involved.

Registration for parents of P6 children who will sit the AQE assessments in the Autumn was due to open on Wednesday 29thApril 2020. We continue to have discussions with key stakeholders to ensure that the best possible provision is made for applicants and, to facilitate these discussions, registration will now open on Thursday 14thMay.

Due to the circumstances caused by lockdown, AQE is moving 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. When the lockdown restrictions are eased and the AQE office reopens, a printable version of the form will be available to complete and send by post.

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