The exam for CCHS (which now shares the same CEM exam) is usually the Saturday before the CSSE test, which will be on September 17th 2016. So probably Saturday September 10th? CCHS website states that details of the arrangements for 2017 entry will be published in March.

Last year, several schools / consortia used the same exam on the same date - CEM state that if any child does manage to take the exam twice (parents entering them for the main date in one area and feigning a reason for them being allowed to take it on the reserve date in another), only the first raw score will be used for both standardisations and this is one way of minimising this. One of the Gloucestershire grammar schools already has September10th on its website as the one 'confirmed' date in the 2017 entry process:

CEM provides exam papers for schools and marks them. But they are not an exam board. They do not decide on exam dates or issue results to anyone other than the schools they have contracts with.

The schools will decide their exam dates, though the second Saturday in September has become CEM super Saturday where a number of schools who are sharing the same CEM paper hold their exams on the same day. DG
