This is Test 2 of 3 composite tests of 58 questions each based on the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum and suitable practice for the AQE transfer test.
AQE practice paper test 2 uses English questions based on the following text content - fiction, poems and advertising. These are the sort of texts that pupils in year 6 and year 7 (primary 6 & 7) may have been working on in school. The questions test your child's understanding and knowledge of many aspects of English including how language is broken down into phrases and individual words, the use of verbs, why and how different texts are written for different audiences, differentiating fact from fiction, spelling and being able to understand what the author is suggesting but not actually saying. There are maths questions on algebra, probability, problems involving money, the 24 hour clock, decimal fractions, reading scales, temperature, price reduction, completing a Venn diagram, angles, properties of shapes and working with scale drawings. All topics that will improve the maths ability of your child.
This test provides a useful means for parents to offer additional preparation at short notice.
A sound knowledge of all aspects of English and mathematics are essential to aid your child in preparing for this important exam and working through our P6/7 packs in English and mathematics will improve a child's ability in both subjects.
