Introduction

 

Bangkok Patana School is a British International School located in Bang Na District, Bangkok, Thailand. Established in 1957, it is the largest British school in the country, catering for approximately 2250 students. [1]

 

Home to an energetic community of enthusiastic learners, Patana offers a varied curriculum, including languages, science, mathematics and technology. Although pupils are encouraged to achieve to the best of their abilities, they are not pressured to live up to unrealistic expectations.

 

Accordingly, the school offers a broad extracurricular programme, successfully providing for creative expression and fun experiences. All-round achievements are thus extremely competitive, allowing the cohort to access prestigious universities in the UK and the States. [2]

Exam type / Board: CEM Select

 

As part of the assessment process for 11+ entry, your child will be asked to complete an online test called CEM Select.

 

The test contains a number of unusual question formats that your child is unlikely to have encountered before. These include drag and drop digits and sentence auto-completes.

 

The assessment will be divided into a series of highly time-pressured sections. Your child doesn’t necessarily need to complete all the questions in each section to do well.

 

11 Plus (11+) Exam Format | Bangkok Patana School

 

The CEM Select will cover the following areas:

 

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning

 

The Verbal Reasoning section of the test assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using words, with a special focus on depth and breadth of vocabulary.

 

The Non-Verbal Reasoning section requires your child to solve problems using shapes and patterns with a main focus on one specific question type.

 

The Numerical Reasoning section assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using numbers and arithmetic.
