This is Test 1 of 3 composite tests of 58 questions each test is based on the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. This makes the test suitable practice for the AQE Transfer Test as the actual test is constructed around the content of the Northern Ireland Curriculum.


This test makes use of a wide variety of mathematical and English questions.

The English content in test number 1 has a selection of English questions that are asked about poems, a diary extract and your child will also be required to read instructions. There will be demands on your child's English language. In particular their knowledge of sentence structure and grammar. How good is their understanding and use of speech marks, plurals, adjectives, similes, spelling and verbs?


To answer these AQE English based questions will often demand that your child has read widely and been made aware of a range of language that they will be presented with in the actual exam. Vocabulary and language are improved when your child reads widely using a wide assortment of texts.


The AQE maths practice content in test number 1 has maths questions again based on the Northern Ireland Curriculum and we have included a range of questions on shape & space. There are other revision questions covering area and length, volume, weight, money and number facts. The Northern Ireland Curriculum is quite extensive so we added other questions about time, percentages, fractions and data handling. Your child must be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to problem solving and to work quickly and accurately.


In the Transfer Test situation your child needs quick and accurate recall of their number facts. To answer the maths questions quickly your child needs to have been taught, revised and have practiced his/her number facts often to be able to recall them quickly.


All of the Northern Ireland Curriculum topics should and will have been part of the teaching and learning at their school. Additional reinforcement and revision will always be of benefit as preparation for this transfer test.


Additional preparation

Confidence in all aspects of English and mathematics are crucial to aid your child in preparing for this important exam. Working through our English and mathematics books will improve a child's ability in both subjects.
