Please see below for further information on the Common Entrance Assessments.

REGISTRATION CLOSED ON FRIDAY 9TH OCTOBER 2020 AT 4PM. Late Registrations can be completed online but will be subject to a late entry fee and assessment centre spaces will be limited. The closing date for applications for Access Arrangements was also on Friday 9th October at 4pm.

A list of school based assessment centres with remaining seats available for the upcoming assessments can be found here.

The Assessment dates have now moved to Saturday 9th January, Saturday 16th January and Saturday 23rd January. You do not need to re-register your child if you have already done so.

The AQE Office have currently posted out Admissions Cards to those holding candidate numbers up to 7250 (registrations submitted up to and including 24th September 2020) where all documentation has been received to complete the registration. If you have any documentation outstanding which is required to complete your registration we will be in touch directly and this will not affect your allocated space in an assessment centre. We are continuing to process cards in numerical order week by week. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
