Level 6 KS2 SATs Papers

Level 6 KS2 SATs were part of the pre-2014 curriculum and were a set of optional tests used to assess the brightest children in Year 6. Level 6 SATs were available in English Reading, Maths and SPaG.

Level 6 English Reading SATs Papers

The Level 6 Reading SATs Paper was essentially just another reading comprehension assessment. Pupils were given a Reading Booklet containing several texts and then asked 25 questions about them. Pupils were allocated 10 minutes to read the texts and then a further 50 minutes to answer the questions. As with the Level 3-5 Reading SATs paper, the Level 6 Reading SATs paper expected some shorter answers and some longer ones, up to a maximum of four marks per question.

Level 6 Maths SATs Papers

As with English Reading, schools could choose to administer Level 6 Maths Tests in addition to the Levels 3-5 tests. The Level 6 Mathematics tests consisted of two papers, Paper 1 (non-calculator paper, 30 minutes) and Paper 2 (calculator available, 30 minutes). Children's marks from both tests were added to determine whether they reached the Level 6 threshold mark.
