What is GL Assessment

The GL transfer Mock test has a varying number of multiple-choice style questions and timings for each section. Once the time in each section has elapsed, children will not get the opportunity to revisit a section. All answers are marked on a separate answer sheet.

The GL tests are marked by an English based company known as Granada Learning. This company is known for its rigour and high quality. As the tests are multiple-choice they will probably be marked by a computer linked optical reader. Marks are given as A, B1, B2, C1, C2 or D.

GL assessment  score: 

The GL assessment score is simply calculated by adding ‘English / Irish Standardised Score’ + ‘Maths Standardised Score’.

So, for example, if a child got 120 in English/Irish and 100 in Maths, so, therefore, they received 220 (120 + 100) in their Combined Total.
