Hi there, where I can find information about the style of exams that schools are using (GL vs CEM), please ? I've checked admission policies (QE boys, WGBS, St Clement Danes), can't find anything. Thank you

A lot of the information is on this page: https://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/schools
On the left hand side there is a list of areas, and within that information about the exams at each school, or group of schools.

Not to mention in the information on the QE website, for QE - have a look at the familiarisation booklets:

https://www.qebarnet.co.uk/admissions-information/sample-test-papers/

Hint - none of them say 'Durham University Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring ' :) .

The North London Girls' Schools' Consortium of a dozen independent schools, now rebadged the 'London 11+ Consortium', also has a familiarisation booklet that doesn't mention 'Durham University Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring' anywhere.

But the booklet has the same content as the CEM booklets for numerous grammar schools!

One such grammar school is Watford Boys. St Clement Danes is in the same SW Herts consortium as WGBS.

QE on the other hand is still using GL I believe.

Watford Boys and Clement Danes are part of the SW Herts Consortium.

SW Herts uses GL for Maths and CEM for English VR on the same day with a short break between them. They use the same CEM as DAO.

These schools do not run their exams themselves but the central body SW Herts runs an academic exam and a music exam for all the schools in the consortium, You then apply for the schools after you have received your results in October from the exams.

This is made clear on both their websites that you need to go to the SW Herts consortium website to find out more about their exams.

QE boys has a very clear admissions policy under a very large tab that says ADMISSIONS

They have the details on their website about their exam and some sample papers.

They use Multiple Choice GL English and Maths 50 questions in 50 minutes, both on the same day with a short break between.
