The CEM 11 plus is an examination used to filter through students who show the skills and qualities required for a grammar school placement.
By using an entry exam, this allows grammar schools to implement a thorough selection process, and determine which students meet the standard requirements of a grammar school pupil.
The exam is made up of the following assessments:
NON VERBAL REASONING
The Grammar School Entry Test process is used to:
- Provide pupils with equal opportunities of passing the entry test;
- Assess pupil’s knowledge in regards to English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning; as well as a short written exercise to examine their communication and creative skills;
- Determine which primary school pupils show the required skills which are favoured by grammar school placements;
- Utilise the skills and knowledge gained in primary school and demonstrate this knowledge in pressurised situations.
The tests are all multiple-choice and will assess different skills and qualities for each area of the assessment.
