Education Quizzes

We love this website! The “quiz” format makes this feel less like hard work and more like fun. There are quizzes to cover all components of the 11 Plus exam, incuding Maths, English and Reasoning.

CEM familiarisation test

Many schools are now using computerised tests for entrance exams. This can seem intimidating, especially if a student has only ever practised using printed papers and pen and paper. On their website, CEM provide a computerised practice test to help students familiarise themselves with the format (you will need Flash player installed your computer to access this):

Owl Tutors papers
