Tracey’s papers are absolutely spot on for the CEM format.
Each paper contains exactly the question types encountered by my students who have taken their 11+ exams over the last three years. The practice papers really do truly reflect the level and style of the actual exam and are all in multiple choice format. Each practice paper contains smaller timed sections and each section is challenging and has certainly helped my students develop their time management skills.
The first paper in a set contains synonyms, comprehension, non-verbal reasoning and maths. The second paper contains antonyms, Cloze passages, maths, non-verbal reasoning and shuffled sentences.
Tracey is always incredibly generous with her knowledge of the 11+ and is very helpful with advice as to how to interpret scores and results as well as sharing exam techniques and tips.
Thank you, I will definitely be using these papers for mock exams this coming summer.
I bought 4 sets of these practice papers last year when helping my daughter prepare for the 11+ exam. Huge relief as I was finding it difficult to find good quality practice material. In my opinion these papers were excellent. They were available for download as soon as I had paid. They were split into small timed sections and had very clear instructions. The papers’ content included everything found in the 11+ exam. Synonyms, antonyms, comprehensions, cloze passages, maths – short and long questions- NVR and shuffled sentences. There was a sheet to record your answers, just like the real test and a very handy sheet with all the answers for parents. These papers were extremely helpful to my daughter. She said that out of all the practice she did, she found these papers to be most like the real thing. They were also very useful in giving her an idea of the timings involved in the test – something the children find quite challenging. I contacted the company to ask a question and ended up talking to a lady who was just lovely. She showed a real interest in my daughter, was hugely knowledgeable about the 11+ and gave us some really great advice. A refreshing change from some other companies whom I found were really only interested in my money. I would not hesitate to recommend these papers if you are considering grammar school and the 11 +. Good Luck !!
The papers prepared by Tracey are exactly what your child needs to prepare for the CEM 11+, they incorporate all aspects from cloze,synonyms and antonyms. The comprehensions are varied texts from classic to contemporary and really help. The non verbal reasoning is spot on and even pushes to more complex levels.
When you buy a practice paper you want it to be as realistic as possible. These practice papers do just that. I love the way each paper is divided into sections with specific times to complete each section as this is how the real exam will be. The difficulty level of the papers is accurate too and the questions have been well thought out.
