Transfer test results were delivered to thousands of Primary seven
The GL and the AQE exams are used by almost all of Northern Ireland's
Our Education Correspondent Robbie Meredith was with one County Down
family as they waited for the results this morning.
It has been really tense, so it has. The long wait almost at an end for
and Ferguson in County Down. Did you get much sleep? We did not. I would
be telling you lies. She waited whilst her youngest daughter went to
look for the local postman and then...
Although she is crying they are tears of joy. She got the transfer
test results she wanted and worked for. I've done about 80 papers or
more. What has that been like? Sometimes it has been stressful.
Just really happy with yourself. Abbey was one of 14,491 entrance. A
very slight fall since last year. 6766 pupils sat the assessment test.
She hopes the result will get her into a grammar school like this. It
has been a great day for Abbey and many pupils like her. But this
divides opinion. Even those who supported would like to see a single
exam. The testing organisations have been talking to make that happen but
sources tell me even though no progress has been made there is no
sign of a single test any time soon. There's a been a serious one vehicle
crash in county Armagh. The Castleblayney road
near Keady has been closed. A security alert in Londonderry.
Part of the area was closed after the discovery of a suspicious
object. Several hundred people have taken
part in a protest march in London, against criminal
investigations into the actions The march which went past
Parliament, was organised by a group called Justice for Northern Ireland
Veterans. Yesterday the Lord Chief Justice
denied claims he prioritises Troubles inquests, in which State
forces are being held to account, Sir Declan Morgan said
he wanted to see outcomes Carl Frampton has promised not
to disappoint his fans in his WBA world featherweight title rematch
with Leo Santa Cruz. His weigh-in was watched by hundreds
of fans ahead of his fight BBC Newsline's Thomas Kane has sent
this report from Las Vegas. Both boxers made the weight
comfortably in front of thousands of fanatical fans here. Many of them
are dreaming about a victory. Carl Frampton weighs in the same as his
opponent, ?125 even. How are you feeling? That was an amazing
turnout. I was expecting big numbers but that was huge. It felt like
Belfast here today. It adds five or 10% to my game. I
cannot wait to get going. Give us a prediction. I will win. I believe I
can knock him out and I will. They are expected to enter the ring at
4am home time. You can listen to it live.
Time now for a look at the weather for the rest
Good evening. Parts of Scotland, England and Wales had a mild day.
For Northern Ireland it was chilly but at least it brightened up. We
had showers. They will continue. There will be a few towards the
north-west. It will become largely dry. Tablature is dropping towards
freezing. Some icy patches where we've had the showers. Tomorrow, I
change is on the way. We have some wetter weather moving from the
south. For most of us it will be dry and cold. Some patches of vodka
could linger. The rain will push into the south. It is quite a wet
day for the Republic of Ireland. A bright start in the south-east of
England but it will gradually cloud over. For north-east England it is a
fine and great day. A few showers to the north. Quite cold but towards it
we will see temperatures into double figures. For Northern Ireland,
temperatures will be a degree up but it is a wild and wet afternoon. The
weather is looking a lot more mobile. Acer bars are packing in to
bring windy conditions. It is wet and mild.
