Revealed: What transfer test grade is required for every grammar school in Northern Ireland?

Tomorrow the Belfast Telegraph will reveal exactly which grades or scores it takes to get a place at every selective grammar school in Northern Ireland.

These scores relate to pupils who sat the Post Primary Transfer Consortium’s GL assessment and/or the Association of Quality Education’s (AQE) Common Entrance Assessment in November/December 2015.

As these tests are not run by the Department of Education, there are no centralised statistics available.

Through Freedom of Information requests, this newspaper has compiled the only comprehensive table of results revealing the grades needed to get into selective grammar schools.

As in previous years, we have produced AQE and GL summaries showing the grades selective schools accepted.

This year, for 63 schools, we have information on how many applications each received, how many first preference applications, what their approved enrolment is, and the highest and lowest grades accepted.
