11M2 is "Preparing to Meet the Monster." Says so right on the score.

11m1 however has no written name on the score, but for those of us familiar enough with the score, we know it to be "System Ready."

The Full cue list is:
01. 1m1a Opening Titles
02. 1m1b The Island Incident
03. 1m2 The Encased Mosquito
04. 2m1 The Entrance of Mr. Hammond
05. 2m2 Que Milagros Chapparita (Source Cue)
06. 2m3 To the Island
07. 3m1 Record Intro- ie: Album Intro to "Theme from Jurassic Park"
08. 3m2 The Dinosaurs
09. 3m2a The Entrance to the Park
10. 3m3 Cartoon Demonstration
11. 4m1 Hatching Baby Raptors
12. 4m2 You Bred Raptors
13. 5m1 The History Lesson
14. 5m2 Jurassic Park Gate
15. 5m3 Goat Bait (Unused)
16. 6m1 An Ailing Monster
17. 6m2 A Storm is Coming
18. 7m1 Dennis Steals the Embryos
19. 8m1 The Trouble with Dennis
20. 9m1 The Falling Car
21. 9m2 The T-Rex Chase
22. 9m3 A Tree for my Bed
23. 10m1 Remembering Petticoat Lane
24. 10m2 My Friend, The Brachiosaurus
25. 10m3 Eggs in the Forest
26. 11m1 System Ready
27. 11m2 Preparing to Meet the Monster
28. 12m1 High Wire Stunts
29. 12m2 Hungry Raptor/ Clever Girl (Partially Unused)
30. 13m1 Into the Kitchen (Mostly Unused)
31. 13m2 March Past the Kitchen Utensils
32. 14m1 T-rex to the Rescue
33. 14m2 End Credits Part I/ 14m2 End Credits Part II

Notice that a space is left for the single source cue, "Que Milagros Chaparrita" which is played in the cantina where Nedry meets Dodgeson. (2m2). This was recorded specifically for the film.

With "3m1" being the alternate opening to "The Dinosaurs" written specifically for the Album to make it into a stand alone piece. It was written during the recording sessions by Williams. It's the familiar solo horn intro then going into winds and then into the somber JP Dinosaurs theme. (the album name: "Theme from Jurassic Park").

The End Credits is written as one cue, but the latter half (with much deciding as the score showed) is marked where they pick up and is on the album as "Welcome To Jurassic Park" and has the same recording in "End Credits."
