CEM 11 Plus

2021 11+ Test Dates for 11+ tests

This page will be updated for dates for 2021 entry in regions using 11+ tests from Cambridge University's CEM Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring®

Why pay £60 for a mock when you can use the Warwickshire 11+ as a free mock exam this year for CEM Centre tests. Tuition Centres can hire coaches to coordinate travel. It does not matter where you live, you can apply to take the Warwickshire 11+. It is free, you just need to pay to get there! Use it as an excuse to take your own test late. Let your child experience a real 11+ test.

The Office for the School Adjudicator has ruled the school cannot refuse testing just because a child lives outside the catchment area.

Ashlawn Aptitude Test for Modern Foreign Languages.
A `back door` route to be taught along side the selective stream.
High KS2 SATs scores are also a back door route in to the selective stream.
Note: once in the grammar stream, you can be removed from the stream in some
subjects so there is no
guarantee of a grammar education.

Test A
Saturday 7th September, 2019
(Sunday 8th Sep 2019
for followers of the Jewish  & Seven Heavens faiths who object to Saturday testing and extra candidates using the test as a mock exam!)

Supplementary dates Monday 16th Sept and Tuesday 17th Sep 2019
Warwickshire: late tests
week commencing Monday 6th Jan 2020 and 2nd March 2020.

Ashlawn School Aptitude Test:
Saturday 14th September, 2019
Alternative Date 21st September, 2019. This is not an official route to the selective stream, but children are usually in the same sets as the 11+ stream.

WCC cannot stop children from
taking their 11+ test as a free mock exam. The Greenwich ruling is clear. Do not be intimidated if questioned. Insist on the first sitting date.

Take Warwickshire 11+ test as late as possible. If out of area for Southern Warwickshire Schools, take in January, 2019 (as you will not get a first round offer anyway) by which time tutors will know the content as WCC now admit children remember content and the test can be compromised.

WCC and Durham deliberately run a test that can be compromised knowing
the risks.

Register for the Warwickshire 11+ test and use as a free mock exam. You have nothing to lose, and much to gain. You do not even need to turn up, so can change your mind Warwickshire County Council cannot stop this.

Help us make this test the free national 11+ test. Register, send us your details and allow we will send you links to some useful free 11+ preparation material.
