The Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) create and supply the 11+ exam papers for an increasing number of grammar and independent schools. The format and content of CEM exams is unique and so we have created specific practice materials for those sitting these 11+ exams.

The following grammar school regions currently use 11+ CEM exams: Berkshire, Bexley, Birmingham, Devon, Hertfordshire, Shropshire, Trafford, Walsall, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Wolverhampton, Gloucestershire and Yorkshire.

Please note that this list is subject to change and it is worth checking the specific requirements of the schools you are interested in. If you are unsure, get in touch and we can advise.

A number of independent schools also now use CEM tests. For example, the 11+ entrance exam for schools in the London Consortium is created by CEM. Furthermore, many independent schools use an online test called CEM Select.

    Using these practice activities has really helped the pupils to become much more confident with this aspect of the CEM exam. I am using them before I introduce the corresponding Cloze (CEM) Pack 2 (Sentences) materials. Improving the understanding of vocabulary through these activities has proved beneficial and the children enjoy completing them. Rather than give them as 'tests' I tend to work alongside the child to start with and there is so much discussion to be had around the meanings of words in context. A fantastic resource.

    Packs available per subject for 11+ independent school and grammar school examinations, including CEM.


    Full 11+ curriculum covered and all packs include answers.


    "We have been using the 11+ independent school range to help prepare students at our after-school club. The papers focus on the specific skills required for these exams and have proved immensely beneficial." Maggie Chun, Igloo Learning

    "The 11+ grammar school range is highly recommended if your child is taking exams set by GL Assessment." Shahid Khan, father of 11+ student



    The 11+ examination is used to select students for Year 7 entry into schools across the country. We recognise the general difference in format and style between independent and grammar school testing as well as the more recent introduction of exams created by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM). For this reason, we have developed specific test papers for each exam type for Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning that reflect these differences. Our grammar school resources are especially useful for those sitting tests set by GL Assessment.


    Our papers cover every aspect of the written examination process for Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning.


    A great way for children to familiarise themselves with the exam format and question styles, whilst perfecting their exam technique. Designed to be challenging and engaging.


    Accurate reflection of the actual exams. Reviewed and updated regularly to ensure they are current and up to date.
