Ds did a test today at school and got 24/30. What level is this?

Depends whether it was the level 2 test, in which case it was a 2A or the level 3 test, in which case it was a 3.

That's helpful, thank you. Ds2 is in y1 so I imagine it was a level 2 test.

We suspect ds2 has AS as he is struggling in so many other respects so it is nice to know he's doing well in this area at least.

In Y1 it could be a level 1 test or it could be a test which will give the school a standardised score rather than a NC level. It depends on the type of test.

I guess it could be that mrz but as ds2 knows all his times tables (including bizarre things like the seven-and-a-half times table) and can add and subtract any pair of 2 digit numbers pretty much instantly I'm hoping school is now recognizing he's good at maths and will let him do more challenging work. I think his reception teacher didn't realize as ds2 is very very quiet and didn't cooperate much with writing things down either but he's got a bit more cooperative this year.

Without knowing which test the school has used it is impossible to guess at levels.

It is unlikely to be a SAT paper in Y1

The teacher talked to me after school. Ds did a ks1 sats paper and got 2a. He'll be given some extension work now. smile good for ds2!
