Hi has any of the collated feedback from the 2013 exam been posted yet?
I've tried to have a thorough search but can't find it.
My db did the exam 2012 so I roughly know what to expect but interested to know any feedback for my dd this year.
It's my first post but the forum helped me stay sane ish the first time around so thank you!

I know that the moderators were asking for exam questions immediately following the 11+ exam in September 2013 whilst the test was fresh in everyone's mind and was informed that this was for adding to the site following all tests being sat. So I would imagine they are in a position to post these now as I'm unsure this has happened currently.

Coming soon! Unfortunately the same test which was set last September can be used for late applicants any time up until the end of Y7. Obviously there would be very few taking the test after the cohort have started at their new schools so that would really only apply to people moving in to the area, if any places happened to become available, but there could in theory still be some at the moment who request testing and ask to be added to the waiting lists. So we're not going to release the information quite yet, to ensure we're not unfair to those still in limbo with regards to getting a place.

That seems very fair, Okanagan. There's plenty of info on the Brum forum on what's been in previous years CEM tests and, of course, there's absolutely no guarantee that what appeared last Sept will be included this year!

Great thank you Okanagan that's really helpful.
So we will wait until July.
Dd has settled into the process well after feeling the pressure following her big brother.
I have to say from our experience they gain so much during the process.
Ds said the night before the results whatever happens I'm so glad I've worked hard this year, his confidence was really boosted by everything he'd learnt.
Particularly the exam technique and also his ability to work independently has been invaluable at big school.
I'll have a look at the Birmingham site meanwhile thanks Jamesdean.

The sticky on the Birmingham forum has been updated with this year's information. And it won't be as long as July before you get Warwickshire.

I did pm the breakdown of each paper , including section types and numbers of questions to Okanagan when DS sat the exam last September. Hopefully, my pm will be shown as that is how I would encourage future posters to feedback exam content to Okanagan. Intially, I was sceptical about disclosing the content so soon after the 3 March offer day but I do not see any reason why fellow members must have to wait beyond Easter to see this breakdown.

Surely last years exam questions collected from us all last September can be published now? If Birmingham's have gone on here why not Warwickshires? It will be timely for those preparing for this Septembers exams.

I did post it last year to Okanagan. I think it should be fine to socialise the content now, Okanagan.

The only thing I can say from DS's expereince is that it was no way as hard as the Birmingham 11+ exam.

Really? Two boys that I know that did both thought that they were pretty similar.
