  • Originally developed by the University of Durham to discourage ‘teaching to the test’

  • Covers verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning

  • CEM papers are mixed, with one exam combining English and verbal reasoning and another combining maths and non-verbal reasoning. Standard Format, Multiple Choice, or a combination may be used.

  • Timings are allocated to each section, and children will need to carefully manage their time. There will typically be more questions than are likely to be answered in the time allocated.

GL Assessment

  • Used in the majority of grammar schools in the UK.

  • Covers English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning / Spatial Awareness.

Session and Student Matching

Once we have discussed it with you, we will assign you a session time and a teacher. Whilst we will always try our best to assign you the session time that you requested, this cannot always be accommodated.
