It depends on how the prospective high school deal with SAT results, and every high school is different - some use the SAT score, some use the teacher assessment and some ignore them altogether and do their own tests.

If they do stream using SAT results, they would be more likely to stream separately for Maths and English. And they would prrobably use a combined English SAT score, which in your ds's case could be a 4a, or possibly a 5c depending on how high a level 5 his reading was.

Hope this helps. smile

OP, my DH is a secondary Head and they set in year 7 on, primarily, SAT results. He says that it is the writing element that they look at more than anything else; sorry if that is not what you want to hear, hope he gets his 4b.

With a 4b/c? No way! Other schools may use different criteria eg. a combined score as Feenie says.

Having worked in Junior and Senior schools - I can say most of them put all the assessment/reports/results from junior schools straight into the back of a filing cabinet and then do their own assessments! Tragic waste of time - but true!
