Once you post your registration form and documents you do not need to do anything further. Depending on when you register it can take anything from 10 days to four weeks before you receive your Admissions Card. May, June and September tend to be busier periods where you may have to wait for four weeks. Please be aware that due to the large number of forms received during these months it is not always possible for us to confirm that a particular form has arrived in the office.
For this reason we recommend that you retain some form of proof of postage which can be used in the rare occasion that your form does not reach us. If a form has been undelivered and a parent can provide proof of postage, we will register a new form as if it was received on the date the original form should have arrived with us. If no proof of postage can be provided, we can only register a new form by the date the new form is received.
If you are considering hand delivering your registration documents, there are some things you should be aware of:
There is no particular advantage to delivering a form in person to the AQE Office, except that you do not need to obtain proof of postage as you have guaranteed its delivery. All forms delivered in person must be left in the internal post box at reception and these forms cannot be checked by staff, nor can receipts be given should you choose to pay in cash. If anything is incorrect or missing from your registration, we will register your child and then contact you directly to correct the matter, as we would with any form arriving by post. Your child’s registration will not be delayed or disadvantaged because of any missing or incorrect items with the registration form.
You will hear back from us by way of your child’s Admission Card, once this is received you should check carefully for any errors and let us know immediately if any of your child’s details are incorrect. The Admissions Card will inform you of your child’s assessment centre, based on the preferences you provided, as well as their candidate number. Please keep your Admissions Card in a safe place.
