CEM produces a familiarisation booklet to inform parents and pupils about its 11 Plus selective assessment test. The booklet includes examples that show the range of skills needed to complete the assessment and the way questions are answered. This familiarisation booklet is not definitive and the type of questions included in the booklet does not guarantee they will be in the final assessment: Familiarisation Booklet for 2020 Entry (PDF 1.37 MB)
