Free 11 Plus Verbal Reasoning Papers – CEM Tests

CEM Verbal Reasoning Tests are unlike other tests because they include a large crossover with wider literacy skills. The verbal reasoning tests below are from a highly reputable publisher and while CEM do not issue verbal reasoning sample tests themselves, this will give you a good idea of what to expect.

While it is good practice to do practice papers, it is important for your child’s development to use other learning resources as well. Our recommended resources are the Vocabulary and Verbal Reasoning Enhance CEM Course and slightly shorter Vocabulary and Verbal Reasoning Boost CEM Course. This is because they are designed specifically for CEM exams and because the courses include technique instruction and explanation on each type of verbal reasoning question for CEM exams together with on-going practice questions.

Free 11 Plus Verbal Reasoning Exam Papers – Independent Schools

These free verbal reasoning papers would also be useful for anyone doing an Independent School Verbal Reasoning test which tends to use GL unless stated otherwise. Independent Schools tend to use GL rather than CEM because they tend to also have their own school written English paper. As the CEM Verbal reasoning test tends to have large crossovers with English so Independent Schools currently tend to use GL for their Verbal Reasoning tests.
