Fully updated with the latest question types for this year’s exam, this is the most accurate practice test you will find for CEM Select.

CEM Select is an online assessment that forms part of the selection process at a number of independent and grammar schools in the UK. The test can be taken by students seeking 11+, 12+ or 13+ entry.


Which schools use the online CEM Select exam?

Independent Schools: A growing number of independent schools use the online CEM Select as part of their 11+ admissions process. This includes St. Paul’s Girls’ School, City of London School for Girls, Reading Blue Coat, St. George’s Weybridge and many more. Other schools, such as Harrow and Eton, use customised CEM online tests.

Grammar Schools: Many grammar school consortiums use the online CEM Select to assess Late Transfer (12+ or 13+) candidates. Some also offer it as an alternative to the standard 11+ exam.

How will this practice test benefit my child?

CEM Select assesses Verbal, Non-Verbal and Numerical Ability. It contains a number of unique features and question types, such as drag and drop, auto-completes and more. It is also highly time pressured.

This practice test is designed to familiarise your child with the online format, style and content of this exam, so they feel confident and prepared for the actual assessment. It is the most accurate practice test available for the CEM Select online assessment.

The 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.
