CEM 11 Plus Exam Free papers

CEM do not publish their own past papers, nor do they use other publishers to do so. To get an idea of the type of tests CEM will use please have a look through the CEM 11 Plus Booklets (below). These have been issued by CEM to illustrate the type of questions children will face. In addition to the booklets published by CEM (Durham University), several publishers have also started to issue their best guess of what an actual CEM paper might look like. Free CEM 11 Plus Papers issued by these reputable publishers are available through the link further down the page.

Feedback and results indicate that questions are often significantly harder than illustrated in the booklets, equally please remember that CEM are free to change questions or introduce new formats whenever they like. They have for instance previously tested for grammar knowledge and equally, they introduced the jumbled sentences question a few years ago without notice.

Make sure to follow our step by step CEM development plan in order to further your child’s skills.

Important: It is vital to combine the use of papers with other learning resources to help your child develop their 11 Plus skills and not to keep making the same mistakes. Our recommended CEM course for revision is the 11 Plus Revision- CEM Course as it is extremely good at helping your child work accurately and ensures they have all the core skills required. Learning Street also have other CEM specific courses that are very good such as their Vocabulary and Verbal Reasoning Enhance CEM Course and Vocabulary and Verbal Reasoning Boost CEM Course.

3/ Make sure to develop your wider skills

Working from these papers alone with your child has very little benefit as strong knowledge across all the areas of the 11 plus is needed in order to stand a chance of getting into your chosen school. To review the books that we suggest you use during your preparation, then try some of these links:
