Verbal Reasoning

Children attending our 11+ Courses will be shown Method & Formulas to prepare themselves for the 11+ exams. Children need to have an extensive knowledge on vocabulary as they may be asked opposite meanings, similar meaning, compound words and how to spell them. Normally questions are multiple choice where children’s need to answers all require questions in very short time.

Non-verbal Reasoning

We cover a range of Non-Verbal. The previous style exam only used 6 types we now cover more types including cubes and rotating shapes. The CEM Durham exam does not have a strict format to follow, it changes every year, so we have to cover a wide range of types as we do not know what your child is going to be tested on. Non-Verbal is only a small part of this CEM Durham Exam, its main focus being on Maths and English up to Key Stage 2.
