How SATs are marked

Key Stages
Here are the recommendations to the Key Stages in the school curriculum. Children develop at different rates and in different ways so please use the information below as a guide only.

Level 2b: A solid level 2
Level 2a: Good skills
Level 3: Excellent - likely to reach level 5 at KS2
Level 4: Amazingly able (and extremely rare)


Tests at Key Stage 2 - Year 6

These are much more formal than the earlier SATs. Children sit exams in the three core subjects - English, maths and science. They are shown how many marks each question is worth: one, two or three. This should help them know how much effort to put into answering each one. For example a 'one mark' answer often only requires one word, while a 'three marker' may need two or three sentences. Papers are sent away to be marked. A score of just over half the available marks will usually achieve level four.

Levels at KS2
U: Below level two
Level 2: Well below the required standard
Level 3: Below average
Level 4: The expected level for most primary children
Level 5: Very able
