    Daughter had welcome event in BRA yesterday afternoon. It went really well, she came out buzzing. I was more worried than she was going in as she didn't know anyone but I was relieved when I saw her coming back with a smile from ear to ear. She made a little friend and they have arranged to meet up on their first day of school. Can't believe tomorrow is her last day at primary school.

    Sorry to hear that m-u-m I'm sure you were fuming, if the other child had been a mark or two lower it would be bad enough but 8 marks is ridiculous! If the school are carrying on like that then maybe LG are a better option.

    Can you all believe it's less than two weeks until they're starting school!
    Is everyone sorted and ready?

    AQE raw scores
    Hi everyone I have been reading this thread with interest. I would like to try and clarify the situation with the AQE raw scores and then their conversion to the child's overall AQE mark rewarded. I will assume that everyone knows what a standardised score means - if not then google it, as there are many good explanations on line. Essentially the average of every paper will be different depending upon how difficult it is and the range of scores achieved by those sitting it. A child may get a raw score in a paper of 56 and this could translate into a very high standardised score such as 120, if those sitting the paper found it difficult and the average was low but this pupil did very well and scored well above average for their age group. By obtaining the 3 raw average scores from AQE but not the corresponding standardised score for each of the 3 papers you cannot work out which two papers were the child's best. e.g. A child may have done really well in a paper but the average was low - then this would be their highest standardised score or they may have had a really high raw score for a particular paper but actually scored below the average in that paper (because everyone else did well) then this paper may result in a lower standardised score. Sorry if this is not clear but really what I am trying to get across is that by looking at a child's raw scores only, you will have no idea what their standardised score for each paper was and therefore you will not know which 2 papers were used to calculate their final score. It is not necessarily the two highest raw scoring papers. Not sure if AQE will give the child's standardised score for each individual paper along with their raw score, if they did, then that would give a better picture.

    AQE raw scores - RESEARCH PROJECT
    FAO any parent whose child sat the AQE test in 2009-2016:
    I am an AQE tutor based in Dromore, Co. Down. For my own interest and to help me to respond to parental queries/concerns, I am doing an analysis of the standardisation process used by AQE - ie, the process whereby raw scores are converted into final AQE scores after age adjustment. Raw scores are the marks the candidate achieved in each paper (out of a total of 64 marks per paper).
    It is possible, if desired, to obtain your child's raw scores in the AQE tests. This information is provided to parents who request the scores via an official application. E-mail the AQE office for more details.
    Raw scores are sent out by post and can take a few weeks to process.
    If you do decide to obtain your child's raw scores, I would be very grateful if you would share that information with me confidentially for my own records. It is most useful if I can include as wide a range of scores and birthdays as possible over several years.
    Thank you, L Coulter, WhizzKids AQE Tuition Service
