What is the CEM Select assessment?

It’s an online test created by the Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM). It assesses Verbal, Non-Verbal and Numerical Ability.

The test contains a number of unique features and question types, such as drag and drop, auto-completes and more. It is also highly time pressured. Click here to learn more about how it works and what your child needs to be aware of.

How will these practice tests benefit my child?

These practice tests are designed to familiarise your child with the online format, style and content of the actual exam, so they feel confident and prepared for the actual assessment. They are the most accurate practice tests available for the CEM Select online assessment.


Each practice test contains six timed modules. These can be completed individually. Once a module is complete, it is marked automatically. Your child will then be able to review it in detail, with answers and explanations provided for every question. Statistical averages, based on the scores of other students who have taken the practice test, are also provided.


There is also the facility to take this practice test with 25% extra time. However, we only recommend choosing this option if you are sure your child will qualify for this extra time in the actual test.
