The CEM Tests
A CEM 11+ Tests consists of two papers. Each paper is divided into timed sections, which focus on what skill/area of knowledge.
The papers are invigilated using an audio CD, which divides the test into timed sections. This ensures fair invigilation for all candidates, but also puts additional pressure on children taking the tests.
CEM papers are mixed, with one exam combining English and verbal reasoning and another combining maths and non-verbal reasoning.
Standard Format, Multiple Choice, or a combination may be used depending on school/region.
The paper contains a short maths section, a longer problem-solving exercise, then some logic puzzles. Timings will be allocated to each section, and children will need to carefully manage the time they spend on each section.
In CEM exams, there will typically be more questions than are likely to be answered in the time allocated, and the weighting of each subject for your child’s final mark will be unknown before the exam.
