What AQE scores do schools require for admission?

What you need to score in the AQE to guarantee entry is impossible to state – even the schools don’t know until the results are in. That said, previous years can give some indication.

Points to note though…

1
Not all applicants on this score may have secured entry – secondary criteria may have been applied to separate candidates with level scores. Refer to an individual school’s entry policy for these criteria.
2
Lowest admitted scores can, and do, change from year to year.
3
These do not include candidates who were admitted under special circumstances.
4
These are part rumour, part borrowed (from the Belfast Telegraph – thanks). Although we do believe them to be accurate, TransferReady cannot absolutely guarantee them. We do hope that they help you plan your next move, though.
