Herschel Grammar School 11 Plus Exam

The examination consists of two separate papers, each of approximately 60-65 minutes duration, containing a variety of questions which will test verbal, numerical and non-verbal ability. Questions on both papers have a range of answer formats. Pupils indicate their answers on a separate answer sheet which is marked by computer and must be filled in exactly as directed in the instructions. The question booklet will not be marked and answers cannot be transcribed to the answer sheet after the examination. These exams are set by CEM.
