Year 6 pupils in the UK (ages 10–11) took their SATs this week, statutory assessments designed to measure academic performance in preparation for secondary school.
However, there was dismay amongst parents and teachers as the English reading paper was reported to be “incredibly difficult” and left “even the most able pupils broken and in tears”.
It’s not clear yet exactly why it was so challenging, and it won’t be until 11th July, when the results are released, that we have access to the full paper.
Nevertheless, MailOnline published 10 multiple-choice questions from last year’s grammar exam that you can give a go (answers provided at the bottom).
I’m pleased to say I scored a perfect 10 at the first time of asking. 😊 🥳
