CEM 11 Plus

Ashlawn Aptitude Test for Modern Foreign Languages.
A `back door` route to be taught along side the selective stream.
High KS2 SATs scores are also a back door route in to the selective stream.
Note: once in the grammar stream, you can be removed from the stream in some
subjects so there is no
guarantee of a grammar education.

Warwickshire schools:
Take Warwickshire 11+ one day later on 10th Sept, 2017, unless out of area for Southern Warwickshire Schools, in which case take in February, 2018 (as you will not get a first round offer anyway) by which time tutors will know the content as WCC now admit children remember content and the test can be compromised.

WCC and Durham deliberately run a test that can be compromised knowing
the risks.
