One of the bodies that sets transfer tests in Northern Ireland has ruled out using verbal reasoning to decide which pupils to admit in 2022.

The Association for Quality Education (AQE), which intends to go ahead with the tests, also said pupils would get an extra 10 minutes for each paper.

Earlier this month, the other exams body the Post Primary Transfer Consortium (PPTC), asked schools to consider using verbal reasoning tests to decide which pupils to admit in 2022.
