SATS are the compulsory exams taken by 7 and 11 year olds at different stages of the primary school curriculum in years 2 and 6 respectively. A score of 100 means the child is working ‘at the expected standard’ for a Year 6 child. 80 is the lowest possible score and 120 is the highest. A scaled score of 99 or less means they haven’t reached the government’s ‘expected standard’. It is often important for students to be adequately prepared for these tests as they are becoming increasingly more challenging.
