AQE results day & re-marking information for parents

Results day for the AQE transfer test can be a nerve-wracking time for the whole family, with parents and children unsure what to expect. Results will be sent by post to arrive on Saturday 28th January, but it you prefer you can contact your local post office to arrange collection at a time that suits you best. 

If your post does not arrive at your home address the AQE office will be open from 2pm where parents can call to receive verbal results. Please note that security questions will be asked for proof of identity. 

Calculation of Scores

Age-related adjustments will be made on each assessment and the best 2 scores will be taken. The average of these 2 scores will be calculated for each candidate which will be called the "standard score".  Results posted on Saturday 28th January will be in the form of standard scores.
