CEM 11+ Non-Verbal Reasoning Exam
 

The CEM 11+ Non-Verbal Reasoning exam has been introduced quite recently and is used by a wide range of private/independent schools and local education authorities. The CEM 11+ is produced by Durham University Education Department and they state that it is “tutor proof” however there are very few exams, at any level, that cannot be tutored for and standards improved by teaching to the test” or “spotting questions” from previous papers.

The CEM 11+ exam has a number of elements including a Non-Verbal Reasoning section. The exam is used to select Year 6 pupils for enrolment into grammar schools and passing the tests may allow them to attend a grammar school of their choice.  Non-Verbal Reasoning is not usually taught in schools but is an important element of the CEM 11+ Exam.

Since it is not taught in many schools, preparation is crucial and the books on this page provide material and resources to help children pass the Non-Verbal Reasoning section of the CEM 11+ test. Resources that will raise pupil standards in this demanding exam.

These practice tests reflect the type of non-verbal reasoning questions that have been set by CEM 11+ in the past however the 11 + exam that your child takes may have a slightly different layout or other content not contained in these practice tests. No publisher can make any guarantees.

The tests provide structured preparation for the Non-Verbal Reasoning elements of the CEM 11+. The CEM book contains a well-structured marking scheme allowing you to easily spot the areas that a child finds difficult. 

Non-verbal reasoning might be a completely new concept to many children and these questions require a child to have the ability to recognise shapes, patterns, shading and relationships between these concepts. This is a skill that many children find difficult but practice will improve their skill levels. (There will also be mathematics content which should be closely aligned to the school maths content at Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum.)

Our Step by Step Non-Verbal Reasoning book offers worked examples of a variety of Non-Verbal questions followed by practice questions with “pupil tips” to guide and improve the learning and understanding of Non-Verbal Reasoning.

Using these resources will help any child to prepare as much as possible for the CEM 11+ Non-Verbal Reasoning.

The CEM 11+ is a very important challenge for many children and it is important to be as well prepared as possible.
