Schools may use a different format for entrance tests. These practice tests cover aspects of the primary curriculum and are intended for revision purposes.

Entrance exams will cover a number of primary topics across English and Maths and are designed to test both verbal and non-verbal reasoning.

Whilst the 11+ was officially discontinued in Northern Ireland, due to pressure from both parents and schools, the Transfer Test remains in place in an internal format. This now exists as two types of test:

PPTC (Post Primary Transfer Consortium)

English: A multiple choice paper lasting 50 minutes with 60 questions. 60% comprehension, 40% spelling & grammar.

Maths: A multiple choice paper lasting 45 minutes with 45 questions covering a range of primary age topics.

AQE (Association of Quality Education – Common Entrance)

The exam is sat as three separate 1 hour combined papers that include both English and Maths questions. Each paper is worth 64 marks with 32 marks for each subject. Questions in the paper are a combination of written and multiple choice.
