Does anyone know what percentage of children have achieved (historically) level 6 at key stage 2 in Maths?

Which is of course what most of us are, so that makes sense smile

Re the English tests appearing harder than the maths, DS's teacher explained it like this: elements of the English (reading?) require a level of maturity and insight to fully answer the questions. Whereas maths is technique - you either know it or you don't.

And reading levels are more likely to get marked back down at secondary for this precise reason...(see my comments upthread).

Moving on.. has anyone looked at sample CAT questions yet? Some of them are diabolical !!, like

"If Y + D means Y is the brother of D; Y - D means Y is the sister of D and Y x D means Y is the father of D. Which of the following means that C is the son of M?

P x Q - C + S
P + CQ
Q - S
None of the above"
