Manchester Mock Exams

Our mock exams are a powerful opportunity for your child to improve their performance in 11 Plus exams in real, timed exam conditions. We run two sets of 11 Plus papers:

Our CEM mock papers have the same layout as the real CEM papers and test the skills in the real exam (comprehension, verbal reasoning, maths and non-verbal reasoning). They are ideal for children who wish to attain places at Altrincham Grammar School, Sale Grammar School, Urmston Grammar School and Stretford Grammar School. We do not run GL mock papers, but the exam format and skills tested are the same as the CEM exam and we recommend children who will take a GL exam to sit the CEM mocks. These mocks run from July to September each year.

Our independent school mock papers are entrance examinations similar to those used by independent schools as a way to test applicants. They test the full range of skills covered in 11 Plus exams across Manchester (comprehension, writing, verbal reasoning, maths and non-verbal reasoning). These tests include varied and challenging questions which give children the opportunity to display their logical thinking, creativity and imagination. If your child prepares for the independent school 11 Plus exams thoroughly, they will have developed their most important skills and knowledge and be in a strong position to succeed in their first year at secondary school. These mocks run from November to January each year.

Each candidate will complete two mock papers in each sitting. Unfortunately, no audio soundtrack will be available.
Candidates should arrive promptly for 9:45am. Exams are scheduled to begin at 10am and end at 12:20pm.


Children are encouraged to wear full school uniform and must bring the following equipment in a clear plastic bag:
⦁ 3 sharp pencils
⦁ 2 black pens
⦁ 2 rulers
⦁ 2 rubbers
⦁ 2 sharpeners


Exams are held at: Birch Community Centre, Brighton Grove, Manchester M14 5JT

Worried that your Child Will be Nervous?

Our mock exams are an opportunity to enable your child to become confident in exam conditions. No-one likes the idea of sitting an exam and for children it can be a very distressing process, especially if the exam will impact their future.

If you hope for your child to attend a grammar school, then they will have to sit an 11 Plus exam. As the exam day approaches, worry and nerves can take hold and they may make errors in their exam, simply because they are nervous.

So, what can you do? We believe your child will have a stronger chance if they sit mock exams, because they improve confidence through experiencing what real exam conditions look and feel like.
