Don't forget that online registration for this year's AQE tests is due to open on Thursday 14th May aqe.org.uk The application process will be open until Friday 25th September so there is no immediate rush to submit your application. However, places are allocated at each assessment centre on a first-come, first-served basis so if you want your child to sit the tests in a particular school, it would be a good idea to submit your application in the next few weeks.
AQE recommends that you complete the application form online but it will also be possible to submit a paper copy of the application form - please be aware that the processing time for a paper application will be much longer.
We have learned today that the AQE tests have been pushed back by a couple of weeks and the tests will now take place on Saturday 21st November, Saturday 28th November and Saturday 12th December. We'll know more once the application process opens officially on 14th May.
If there's anything we can do to help you with the application process, please ask! We can print a copy of the application form for you, for example, or provide evidence of entitlement to free school meals if you can't produce your original letter.
