This makes the UK grammar schools adopt a specific selection process for their admissions, and determine which students meet their academic requirements.

CEM VERBAL REASONING QUESTION TYPE-2 CLOZE VOCABULARY TEST

These questions consist of a short passage of text with certain words with missing letters. The task is to use their vocabulary knowledge and spelling skills to fill in the missing letters. Reasoning skills are much crucial for this task because the words are to be deduced based on the context.

 The only way to answer these questions perfectly is by learning as many words as you can with correct spelling and read more texts.

In these questions, there will be sentences with missing words. The child must select the most appropriate word from the options given. The options might contain words with incorrect spellings, a word which is closely related to the correct word but not right, a correct word but in the wrong tense, a homophone of the correct word etc.

Example

Focussing on core English skills like tenses, meanings of words and spellings is essential for your excellent performance in the test.

CEM VERBAL REASONING QUESTION TYPE-4 CLOZE SYNONYMS TEST

The question format is such that the child is asked to select a pair of words, one from each group that are similar in meaning.

Doing lots of tests will expose children to new words every time. Moreover, the words they come across should be learnt adequately for sustainable performance improvement activity.

Example

CEM VERBAL REASONING QUESTION TYPE-5 CLOZE OPPOSITES TEST

Opposites tests are pretty much common in every 11 Plus test, either for a grammar school or an independent school. The question format is similar to that of the cloze synonyms test.

The question may also be asked to select a word from four words under options which is most opposite in meaning to the given word.

Children need to work to develop excellent vocabulary and spelling skills and apply those skills while performing these tests.

Example

CEM VERBAL REASONING QUESTION TYPE-5 SHUFFLED SENTENCES

The task here is to rewrite the sentence in the correct order, given a line that is completely jumbled up.

The question may also come in such a way to find out the additional word that is unfit in the given sentence.

The child must employ ACTIVE thinking to solve such questions. He must grab the subject, object and verb of the sentence. He must be aware of sentence formats for different tenses, conjunctions being used and prepositions.
