Note (added July 10 2018): Here are the 2018 scaled scores for key stage 2 SATs.

The Department for Education has today released the marks pupils needed for the 2017 key stage 2 tests to achieve the government’s “expected” score.

The pdf document can be viewed below or downloaded directly from the Department for Education.

To meet government expectations, pupils must achieve 100 in their scaled scores. But this equates to different marks for each paper (maths; reading; grammar, punctuation and spelling) and can change each year.

Converting a pupil’s raw score to a scaled score simply requires looking up the raw score on the tables below, and reading across to the appropriate scaled score.

The marks required for 2017 on each of the key stage 2 SATs tests are:

– Maths: 57 out of 110 (down from 60 in 2016)

– Reading: 26 out of 50 (up from 21 in 2016)

– Grammar, punctuation and spelling: 36 out of 70 (down from 43 in 2016)

The scaled scores for key stage 1 tests were released last month.

Full results for KS2 are expected later this morning.
