Post subject:  Comprehension in the CEM

I've had conflicting answers from people I have asked so just trying to get a clear answer! Is Comprehension a stand-alone section in the exam or is it included with other VR questions? I know for Pates, children have to pass a certain mark on each section to be offered a place and my daughter is struggling with Comprehension so I'm just hoping she might be able to make up the marks elsewhere in that section. Thanks

CEM is traditionally NVR, VR and Maths so comprehension falls into VR (although there are obviously some wordier maths questions that need comprehending too! :wink: )

With the CEM tests my boys did, the comprehension was not like traditional comprehension (a passage and then questions) but things like missing words, Cloze passages, synonyms. antonyms etc
