Academic selection: “The plan for a new transfer test cannot be an overhaul of the archaic 11-plus”

Two unofficial testing systems have been run by two private companies since the abolition of the state over 11 exam over 10 years ago.

Currently, children can take up to five tests if they fit into both systems, defined by the PPTC for predominantly Catholic grammars and the AQE for other grammars.
