We can reveal some information relating to the 10+ tests held on 2nd July 2013. This test was set by CEM Centre for Evaluatuation and Monitoring®. This included synonyms; long maths (including a Ferry timetable and ratio questions based upon currency) and jumbled up sentences. There were many short sections including 2 comprehension passages (fair ground and driver); roundabout numbers for quick maths and equations (missing numbers) as well as a very short cloze passage. NVR questions included shape addition and subtraction as well as shape sequences in a different format than the norm.  Again, we believe we are the first site to publish this information.
