How will this product benefit my child?

Selected Letters is one of the modules that may appear in the CEM Select test.

In this module, your child will be shown a source word and a clue for a missing word.

They will need to drag selected letters from the source word to form the missing word.

Selected Letters is a highly unusual testing format that is unique to CEM Select.

Students who do well in this module possess a strong vocabulary.

The module is highly time pressured, meaning your child needs to learn to work both accurately and efficiently.

Selected Letters is one of the most challenging modules in the CEM Select assessment.

Luckily, a little bit of familiarisation and practice can go a long way to improving your child’s confidence and performance.

The practice tests in this product are designed to familiarise your child with how this module looks and feels.

Each practice test is set up just like the actual exam so your child can develop the key skills required to do well in the Selected Letters module.

The practice tests included in this product are designed to maximise your child’s potential in the Selected Letters module so that they:

– are familiar with the question format.

– can answer these questions accurately and efficiently.

– will face no surprises when taking the actual exam.

– can approach this section of the exam with confidence.

What’s included?

This product contains 8 practice tests, each using the same timings and format as the actual exam.

The tests can be taken in any order.

There is an option to take each test with 25% extra time. We recommend using this option if you are sure your child will qualify for it in the actual test.

Once each test is complete, it is marked automatically. Your child will then be able to review the test, seeing which questions they got correct and incorrect.

Ranking statistics are also supplied per test so you can gauge your child’s performance compared to their peer group.

Once purchased, these tests can be used immediately in your online dashboard.
