TEST DAY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 

We are receiving a number of the same questions regarding the test day arrangements and, although we are happy to help as much as possible, I am sure you will all appreciate that we are extremely busy at the moment and unable to deal with each query individually. Therefore we have put together a number of the most common questions and provided you with the answers below. 

These Q&As will be updated as and when we receive more queries. Please check these before contacting the school with your questions.

However, if your query is not on the list please telephone 0118 9015859 and speak to the Receptionist who triage your call.

If your child is part of our Widening Horizons initiative and you have any questions, please contact Amanda Emberson-Powney in the normal way.

FAMILIARISATION BOOKLETS 

This familiarisation booklet is designed to inform parents and candidates about the Entrance Test in order to:

• Give a feel for the appearance of the actual assessment
• Introduce some of the symbols and phrases used in the assessment
• Inform parents and candidates of the invigilation procedure
• Indicate the range of disciplines that will be tested
• Highlight the range of answer formats used in the assessment. This booklet also includes examples to indicate the range of skills required to complete the assessment and the manner in which questions are answered.

This familiarisation booklet is NOT definitive and the inclusion of any question types does not guarantee that they will be found in the final assessment.

Please note: There are no practice test papers for this assessment: resources available in bookshops or on the internet are not genuine CEM resources. This familiarisation booklet is the only official CEM 11+ resource available
