SATs exams: KS1 and KS2

SATs for KS1 and KS2 exams can look and feel different from each other given the amount of materials they cover and their grading schemes, but with the right practice and SATs tutors, your child will be able to tackle both assessment tests fearlessly.

Here are some key differences:

Key Stage 1 SATs

  • Taken internally at schools and marked by teachers based on the National Curriculum.
  • Students are assessed on the understanding of key concepts.
  • Tests are meant to indicate student levels, and not to fail anyone.
  • Get in-depth information about the Key Stage 1 assessments, including what’s covered and how they are marked.

Key Stage 2 SATs

  • Students in Year 6 take the exam in Key Stage 2.
  • Assessments are more formal since they are assessed and marked externally.
  • Topics cover a wide range of concepts and test multiple skills acquired over the years.
  • Find out everything you need to know about the new style Key Stage 2 papers and how to prepare for KS2 SATs for English and maths.
