CEM 11+ Information

“Sue has a brilliant understanding of the 11+ exam and its many requirements and provided invaluable support along the whole year both for our son and for us as parents!”

Bronwyn Ward – November 2019

Dates are now set for our five 11+ Mock Exams for Y5 children who will sit the 11+ test in 2020.

The first of these (26th Jan 2020) will be delivered at an academic standard appropriate to that stage of Y5 to enable a highly objective assessment of the progress a child is making with their 11+ studies. The remaining four dates (26th Apr, 17th May, 14th Jun, 19th Jul) will be full-standard 11+ mocks.

I will definitely use you again when it’s my son’s turn!

The Warwickshire 11+ Test

The Durham Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) 11+ is comprised of two 45-50 minute tests.

Each paper takes around 60 minutes to administer as instructions are given and examples are explained between each section. Instructions for the test are played from a CD.

Sue Chapman Tuition offers 11+Mock Exams in Warwickshire to help prepare your child for this test.

After my eldest son studying with Sue for the 2018 11+ I had no hesitation in enrolling his brother for the following year. Both enjoyed the dynamics of their study groups; being able to work with peers enhancing their learning. The written material and delivery were both excellent and the year long course structured well to build towards the exam. Both boys benefited from the extra, dedicated weekly sessions (doing Verbal Reasoning), the revision sessions over the summer holidays and they found the numerous mock exams crucial to the build up to the actual 11+ exam. By exam time they held no fear of the test environment and went in relaxed and comfortable. As a parent, the feedback from the mock exams and the recommended reading and target areas really help you support your child’s learning. Both Sue and Sue are immensely approachable and always happy to give feedback and address any concerns. Most importantly they made what can be quite a stressful year for any 11+ student enjoyable, both my sons really did enjoy their tutoring sessions!

What’s In The 11+ Test?

Verbal Reasoning

Verbal Reasoning includes reading comprehension, cloze passages and vocabulary sections. Reading comprehension tests a child’s ability to make inferences, understand vocabulary and extract accurate interpretations of the text. Cloze tests are passages which contain missing words.

They also assess an overall understanding of the passage, but require closer attention to the grammatical and syntactic elements of written language than in the comprehension test.

The verbal reasoning vocabulary section involves the manipulation of verbal representations and the solving of verbally presented problems.  A rich vocabulary is essential as well as an understanding of synonyms and antonyms.

Numerical Reasoning

Numerical Reasoning includes longer maths, shorter maths and data processing sections.  These sections will assess your child’s ability in mental arithmetic as well as problem solving within a multi part question format.

Non-Verbal Reasoning

Non-Verbal Reasoning assesses intelligence through the manipulation of shapes using rotation, reflection, symmetry, shape, positions number, size, and shading.  It is meant to eliminate cultural bias in testing and possible bias against any child who may have difficulty with verbal elements.
