Can we find out actual marks for SATs?

Is there any way to find out what marks/percentage the year 6 children got in the 2015 SATs? I am curious as my son got a 5 in maths but was predicted a 6. He struggled with time pressures and ran out of time (missed 2 questions on each paper). It would be interesting to see how he did in the other questions.
I know a 5 is good though:-)

You can ask the school to either see the papers or get copies of them. I appreciate you may just be curious but if he struggled with doing everything within the time allowed, I'm not sure what extra information you would get from seeing the actual test.

Why? The paper won't show you why he missed 4 questions. Let it go - it's done.

He got a great level. He will be CAT tested at start of secondary and then tested every half term. His true working level will become apparent and he may well show better than expected progress over y7. No one has made reference to my DS primary Sats level since the induction day! Secondary maths teachers value their own tests, in our experience.

Congratulations to your DS.

Just ask the school for his raw mark. They should tell you.

I think it's very useful to know if he just scraped a 5c or easily got a 5a......

It would be interesting to know what sort of questions he was missing, say the ones involving proportions, or volume or whatever. If he has weak spots it could be useful to know.

The actual test papers haven't been returned to schools this year

He mentioned getting a breakdown of marks by the end of the week (5c-5a). The secondary maths teacher had been coaching the L6 children (five boys) and said he was excellent at maths.
I think he would have been fine with an extra half hour. Ah well. I know he did great anyway.

I think time constraints are a problem for many children

CountryLovingGirl - the tests are only half an hour each. You wouldn't be able to have another half an hour.
