Usually they do, yes. How do you know he hasn't? Has he just sat one paper? It may be that his teacher was confident that was was a level 3 so didn't make him do the level 2 paper - which is correct btw.
I don't know. maybe I should ask the teacher. Just don't know if it would be a bit pfb. I do know that with numeracy which is his strongest subject he took 2 papers one morning. Than in the afternoon repeated what he consider to be the easiest one. Maybe I am selling him short but I am starting to doubt these levels. Especiall in writing which is at times not very legible. Plus has needed quite alot of help with comprehension homework.
School goes up to year 4. I think all children have been given comprehension homework. Am I right therefore in assuming that to award a level 3 school would need plenty of evidence including a good performance in the actual tests.
