Entrance Tests 2018

CEM Tests

There are two CEM Tests (approx. 50 minutes each).  The CEM tests will assess verbal ability (comprehension, vocabulary and verbal reasoning), numerical reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. The combined score of the two tests will be the final score.  CEM do not produce commercially available practice material for the tests but a familiarisation booklet is available here – and this will give a feel for the appearance of the tests, the range of disciplines tested and answer formats used.
