Does anyone know what grade they should be getting in their year 9 mock sats (or the proper ones)?

its different for each set.

your child should be told in school

there is different expected level for each subject


so your child shud ask ther subject teacher

MrsSnape - if it's any consolation, my dd did not do that well in Year 9 SATs in science, but it all clicked in year 10 and 11 and she is now doing her GCSEs and getting As and Bs. It is quite possible for them to put a spurt on. She got worse marks in junior school and lower down the senior school but has worked hard and dome better than some who had high scores then. Now dd is in year 11 and preparing to do science A levels. These preditions can only tell you so much....

our secondary school set it out like this eg:

current level 7, min acceptable grade level 7 low,target aspirational grade 7 secure.

its set out like that for all subjects i find that easier to understand

i dont know why i assumed they all did it like that no?

Level 5a is the average year nine level. 5a= c (pass grade) or low b. im a yr nine student.

I thought it was 5 and 6 is the "good" grade although i remember a few 7s back when i was at school. (Sadly not mine !)

Bugger how did i not notice that !

Seriously ZOMBIE thread.
Although I did read elsewhere on MN that Level 6 in KS3 meant Cs & Bs for GCSE (nowadays).

I don't always mind a zombie thread (after all, the same problems do recur for different parents, months or years apart)... But in this case, they've abolished the KS3 SATs, so this thread is well and truly redundant! grin

Most schools still do them internally.

It's a double zombie thread as it's now been resurrected twice! The OP's sister would now be about 19 or 20...

The thread that never dies.

There is fair bit of conflicting information in this thread.

Have a look at the Dept for Education webpage on School Performance Tables, at the following link:


You will see that at age 14 (end of KS3) the expected level is 5 or 6. Level 7 is beyond expectations and 8 is exceptional.

Not for mumsnetchildren, sparkly! grin

Might be something to do with the vintage of the thread, Sparky.
