Year 10 and Year 12 CEMS Testing – For Students

Dear Year 10 and Year 12 Students, 


At Sha Tin College, our students regularly complete Cognitive Ability Tests through the UK based “CEMs” Suite.  We use these assessments to help us in providing support to guide you towards achievable goals as you continue with your Secondary School education.  The assessments are designed to measure aptitude for learning, rather than current attainment and are composed of four areas; Vocabulary; Mathematics; Non Verbal; Skills.   


These assessments will take place as a part of your induction sessions on Thursday 19th / Friday 20th August.  Your tutors will provide the details in regards to the exact time and location.  


Please note: It is not expected that you complete any revision or preparation for these assessments.  You must, however, ensure you have a fully charged laptop with you to complete the assessment, as they are only accessible online.   


You can find out more information about these assessments by going to https://www.cem.org/ If you have further questions please feel free to contact me. 


Kind regards, 

Kate Rogers 

Vice Principal – Teaching and Learning
