CEM 11 Plus

11+ Test Dates 2020 (2021 entry)

This page will be updated for dates for 2021 entry in regions using 11+ tests from Cambridge University's CEM Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring®

Why pay £60 for a mock when you can use the Warwickshire 11+ as a free mock exam this year for CEM Centre tests. Tuition Centres can hire coaches to coordinate travel. It does not matter where you live, you can apply to take the Warwickshire 11+. It is free, you just need to pay to get there! Use it as an excuse to take your own test late. Let your child experience a real 11+ test.

The Office for the School Adjudicator has ruled the school cannot refuse testing just because a child lives outside the catchment area.

Ashlawn Aptitude Test for Modern Foreign Languages.

A `back door` route to be taught along side the selective stream.
High KS2 SATs scores are also a back door route in to the selective stream.

Note: once in the grammar stream, you can be removed from the stream in some
subjects so there is no
guarantee of a grammar education.

This is not an official route to the selective stream, but children are usually in the same sets as the 11+ stream.

WCC cannot stop children from taking their 11+ test as a free mock exam. The Greenwich ruling is clear. Do not be intimidated if questioned. Insist on the first sitting date.

Take Warwickshire 11+ test as late as possible. If out of area for Southern Warwickshire Schools, take in January, 2021 (as you may not get a first round offer anyway) by which time tutors will know the content as WCC now admit children remember content and the test can be compromised.

Register for the Warwickshire 11+ test and tick to share results with Birmingham. Use as a free mock exam. You have nothing to lose, and much to gain. You do not even need to turn up, so can change your mind Warwickshire County Council cannot stop this.
