I've had to speak to my DS's teacher re SATS scores as we are appealing for a place at his preferred school and the appeal panel want scores. The teacher told me that his scores were around 124/5 - i thought they were standardized out of 120 (my older DD went through last year and had a score out of 120) but he said scores went up to 135. Has it changed this year? I'm v confused as school said they have an expected 113 standardized score...

I don't think so.

A teacher recently explained SATS scores to me and they are all standardised out of 120. Not sure where 135 has come from though I think they must have made a mistake!

How can your son have SATs scores when they are not taken for another two months?

Could they be CAT scores rather than SATS?

Since 2016, SATs scores are standardised to 100 though the raw score for English (SPaG & Reading) could be considered to be 120 I guess.

I think the scores you're mentioning are something else.

They sound v like cat scores, which I think are out of 135

SATs use scaled scores (not standardised) and range is 80 to 120.
A score of 135 certainly sounds like a standardised score which is used by a range of assessment schemes so could literally be anything.

He can’t have his SATs results yet as he hasn’t sat his SATs. They are scaled to 120 for all of them and were for last year as that’s what DDs were scaled to last year.
Does sound as if it could be CAT scores.

thanks for responses - I've spoken to his teacher again and now have his scaled scores from his sats practice papers, which are out of 120, so I'm armed for appeals wink

Why would you need to appeal sats results?

Presumably to show that eg an 11+ result is abnormally low compared to normal ability as shown in school?
