You can get help with Transfer test preparation by visiting our tuition website.

On Target Tuition have been helping to prepare children for the Transfer Test for the past 15 years from our Lisburn City Centre tuition centre. We noticed a gap in the market for high quality, up to date practice papers that mirrored the curriculum set out by the SEAG therefore we decided to write our own resources because a lot of what was available was outdated and used the previous AQE and GL specifications. We hope you find our resources helpful and would be grateful for any feedback you might have.
