Due to Covid, St. Edmund’s College have changed their admissions process for Year 7 Entry. Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English written papers will be replaced by an online test called CEM Select.
Candidates for Year 7 entry will be contacted by the school for dates for the assessment.
St. Edmund’s College » The 11+ Assessment – CEM Select
As part of the assessment process to join in Year 7, your child will be asked to complete an online assessment called CEM Select, which measures your child’s Verbal, Non-Verbal and Numerical Reasoning abilities. It is created by the Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM), which is a part of Cambridge Assessment.
Here are some key facts about the CEM Select assessment:
– It contains a number of unusual question formats that your child is unlikely to have encountered before. These include drag and drop digits and auto-completes.
– It is divided into a series of highly time-pressured sections. Your child doesn’t necessarily need to complete all the questions to do well.
– 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.
