CEM 11+ PRACTICE PAPERS

The CEM 11+ is a relatively new form of the 11+ which is being used across the country to measure Year 6 pupils’ ability in key areas which are desired by grammar schools. As a metric for gauging the competency of hopeful grammar school students, it’s vital that you take the steps to help prepare your child for the CEM 11+ as much as possible. 

This carefully-crafted book contains three full sets of practice papers in the style of the CEM 11+. Read on to find out what this means for you as a parent.

WHAT IS THE CEM 11+ TEST? 

In the final year of primary school (Year 6), pupils might choose to take the 11+ assessment. Passing the 11+ is required for students to attend grammar school, and so it’s important that your child prepares effectively if they do wish to attend grammar school.

The CEM 11+ is used in a number of counties throughout England, and has been designed to be ‘un-tutorable’. While it may be difficult to tutor your child through the CEM 11+, it’s entirely possible to learn the kinds of questions that appear in the CEM 11+, so that you aren’t taken off-guard by what you’re faced with on the day.

The CEM 11+ is an incredibly important test for many children, since it can be the difference between attending their secondary school of choice
and ending up at their second choice of school. For this reason, we believe that it is vital for children sitting the CEM 11+ to be as prepared as possible.

The CEM 11+ test is made up of the following key areas of assessment:

11+ CEM Style Practice Papers

Numerical Reasoning

 

Verbal Reasoning

Non-Verbal Reasoning

CEM 11+ PRACTICE PAPERS – THE KEY TO CEM 11+ SUCCESS

The CEM 11+ test has been designed to be ‘un-tutorable’. Whether or not this is the case, it’s still possible to prepare as much as possible.
