The 11 plus exam for Queen Mary’s High School follows the CEM 11 plus for the Shropshire, Walsall and Wolverhampton Consortium of grammar schools. The entrance exam consists of two multiple choice question papers, covering a range of numeracy, literacy and problem solving skills.
CEM exams cover verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning. In practice, ‘verbal reasoning’ encompasses many of the skills tested in the GL English exam, including comprehension. Likewise, ‘numerical reasoning’ involves the core maths skills needed for the GL exam. For more information, see Atom's complete guide to the 11 plus.
The test comprises two papers of about an hour each, which assess verbal reasoning/English, non-verbal reasoning and mathematics. Admission to the school is based on performance in the test. A number of places will be allocated to Looked After/Pupil Premium children, whose scores exceed a minimum qualifying score.
To register for the entrance exam, parents should visit the Queen Mary’s High School admissions page on the school website. The closing date for applications is Thursday 7th June 2022 at 4pm.
It’s a good idea to give your child ample time to prepare for the 11 plus exam by starting as early as possible. Parents should introduce their child to problem solving concepts in Year 4 and move towards more tailored concepts of verbal and non-verbal reasoning in Year 5 to give your child a good foundation of knowledge.
