    Rox12 and Neveranymoney - especially for you - wishing you and your children all the best for this not so nice AQE process. Will dip in from time to time to see how its all going - as I am sure others from 2015-16 thread will too.

    We got 118 and got into first choice Wallace, but I'm aware of a friend of hers who got 110 and didn't get into Friends

    DS was pleased on Sat he got into Friends. Now he is a bit worried as buddies going to Wallace. I told him that they'd be split over classes and new friendships are formed etc .. Roll on end of term...

    Wee bump for this thread as its that time of year again.My youngest Daughter will be undertaking her tests starting in November (fingers crossed). I haven't as yet heard the official intake scores from 2017.

    The Belfast Telegraph usually publishes last years intake scores slap bang in the middle of parents having a meltdown.
    I can't remember if it's during the actual exams or when the results come out but I know I was eagerly checking them at the time.
    Good luck to your daughter!

    The intake scores don't actually mean much, though. They were for last year and aren't a good predictor of this year. Taken over several years, it *may* give an idea of the possible range of scores, but a single year doesn't help.
