Upton Hall School FCJ

main-green logo gold fcj 2).jpg

The entrance exam for Upton Hall is very different to the new format – CEM 11 plus exam. Girls wishing to attend tutoring for this exam will need to familiarise themselves with the many different verbal reasoning question types (very similar to the ‘old 11+’). The closest matching commercial workbooks and tests are from GL assessment and Susan Daughtrey.

If you wish for your child to enter for both the Upton Hall exam and CEM 11 plus exam may require support as the content for each is very different.

The pass mark is a standardised score of 236 from 2 multiple choice Verbal Reasoning papers, 50 mins each (with a break in between). A standardised score uses your child’s age in years and months to convert from a raw score.
