Latymer School

CEM Style Mock Exams

There is only one grammar school in Enfield, the Latymer School.

In 2012 there were 1741 applications (for 2013 entry). In 2011 there were 1675 applicants. In 2008 there were 1778 applications.

The 11+ exam has changed since the 2013 testing. It is now Verbal Reasoning, Numerical Reasoning and Non-verbal Reasoning is by CEM (Durham University). The topics are more or less the same, as the Verbal Reasoning element of the CEM exam is actually more like an English exam.
However, in preparation we still recommend the practice of the Verbal Reasoning techniques, as the reasoning skills are essential, it also helps in the build up of vocabulary. Besides, there is no knowing exactly what will come up in the exam.
