Did anybody do the CEM style mocks in 2013 and find them useful?

Note: We did not book "Elevenplusexams" mocks, but we did book another CEM mock

To our surprise the format was not that of CEM type (although it said on the cover). You will have to ask them before hand if it is CEM type. Just by mixing 3 sections into one test is not CEM. There are finer variations that I understood as a parent but for some reason, the test creator didn't. So, be careful and ask all the questions before spending £50 or £70 whatever.... Also ask if you will get the question paper (by email or paper version) and not just the summary results.

Ok, thanks for that p2013.

walsallmum, I've been reading your recent posts with some interest (if you like pm me and I might be able to give you some pointers, I've also knocked up some of my own Cloze which I'm happy to send over :) ). Was it the Harrow mocks your dd did by any chance? They were quite tough I thought and the overall results of the cohort were not that good!

Have you booked the Sutton mocks as they are supposed to be quite good although they are also not CEM?

I've not found anywhere which provides good CEM Mocks yet so if anyone knows of any please let us know :?

There was one place I found but they were doing online tests so I lost interest very quickly :(

The one in Crofton hall is just ok and it is not CEM pattern. They do charge additional ££ for feedback and return question papers.

There's another one in Croydon ( I think DIY), which is horribly tough.

My ds fared ok in both the above mocks which did put us in unnecessary stress & ruined our weekends. However, he cleared all real exams in the end which made me realised the inferior quality of these mocks & how discouraging it could be for the young ones. You may go there just for experience but don't expect much from set up and don't get hung up on the exam scores.

I actually liked the Kent mock (free) for OOC. That was far better for experience perspective and very well organised.

DD did the one on 25th May and hasn't scored that good. From her report, I could see, she left more than 10 questions in Total from 2 Papers.
DD said she did not even get the time to guess and mark.That clearly shows the timings were really tight.

Has anyone else done the Set C paper and found easy?
