Transfer Test Comprehension

This resource has been written to give children the chance to practise comprehension questions that are specific to the Northern Ireland AQE and GL Transfer Tests. 

Transfer Test Comprehension is the number one area that parents tell us their children struggle with in the AQE and GL tests.  It is hard to teach and even harder to get children interested if they are not great readers.

The good news is, the questions asked in the Transfer Test are very prescribed.  Moreover, you can train your child in the specific skills that the questions test and with practise they can master these skills and pick up the marks easily.  This resource breaks down the skills needed for the Transfer Test and targets each skill with lots of practice questions.  As a result, your child will master each skill individually, preparing them for the real tests.

What is included:
  • There are 12 texts (4 fiction, 4 poems and 4 non-fiction)
  • There  are 10 questions for each skill per text.  Meaning you have 50 questions for each text.  You can start at the beginning and work through each of the texts and questions sequentially, or you can choose to focus in on one particular skill that your child needs practise in.
  • Top tips for Transfer Test comprehension success.
  • Top tips to master each Transfer Test comprehension skill.
