Our guide to the CEM 11 plus exam 2022 

CEM exams are more difficult to predict as the test was designed specifically to be less transparent and create a fairer assessment. There is no clear answer as to how many questions there will be in the 11 Plus exam and how much time students are given overall.

There is no exact format for the exam as this changes every year. As CEM exams are designed to be less transparent and to test children on the skills that are not easily able to be practiced, they tend to be the trickier parts to the GL 11 Plus exams.

Past CEM exams have included two 45-minute papers, four separate papers, or one combined paper covering all the topics above.

The format containing two 45-minute papers is the most common structure seen in the CEM exam. The exam can be either multiple choice or free response depending on the topic. Each paper will have a combination of topics including Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Numerical Reasoning. Students will be given different amounts of time for each section, ranging from 6 to 12 minutes. Students are only able to proceed to the next section when they are told to do so.

CEM exams are more difficult to predict as the test was designed specifically to be less transparent and create a fairer assessment. There is no clear answer as to how many questions there will be in the 11 Plus exam and how much time students are given overall.
