Association of Quality Education (AQE Ltd) is the company formed to manage and administer the Common Entrance Assessment (CEA) for transfer of pupils from primary to a number of post primary schools.  A full list of participating AQE Grammar Schools is available under the ‘Schools’ section of this website and on the front cover of the Registration Form.

RESULTS (issued to parents on Saturday 27th January 2018)

  • If you have changed address from the one we have on our database please ensure all changes are with the office by Monday 22nd January 2018.  Any changes made after this date cannot be guaranteed for delivery on Saturday 27th.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure we have the correct address.
  • AQE cannot facilitate any collection arrangements, other than postal.  If you wish to collect your results from a Post Office, you must contact your local Post Office to see if this is possible.
  • The AQE telephone lines will be open from 2pm on Saturday 27th January for emergency calls only.  This facility is to allow parents who, for any reason, have not received their results.  We would appreciate if general queries can be left until Monday 29th January, so the telephone lines can be kept free for those who need it urgently. You MUST have your child’s candidate number in order to receive their result over the telephone.
