What is the CEM 11 Plus Exam?

A CEM 11+ Test consists of two papers. Each paper is divided into timed sections, focusing on what particular skill/area of knowledge.

The papers are checked using an audio CD, which divides the Test into timed sections. This ensures fair invigilation for all candidates and puts additional pressure on children taking the tests.

CEM test papers are mixed, with one exam combining 11+ English and 11+ verbal reasoning and another combining 11+ maths and 11+ non-verbal reasoning.

The question paper is grouped into sections that may, for example, move from short maths to non-verbal questions to worded problems. The exam format may be either traditional or Multiple choice. The weighting of each subject is unknown before the exam due to the diverse nature of the papers.

The paper contains a short maths section, a longer problem-solving exercise, and some logic puzzles. Timings will be allocated to each section, and children will need to carefully manage the time they spend on each section.
