  • The new national curriculum will be assessed for the first time in May 2016
  • Test outcomes will no longer be reported using levels. Scaled scores will be used instead.
  • There will be 1 set of tests for each subject. They will include a small number of questions designed to assess the most able pupils, so separate tests are no longer required.
  • An arithmetic test now replaces the mental mathematics test.
  • Schools may consider entering pupils for some, or all of the tests, early. Where a pupil does not take all of the tests early, they may take the other tests in future years
  • The biennial science sampling tests will take place in June 2016. Tests will be administered in selected schools by external administrators. Participation is statutory for schools selected to take part.
  • Schools (except participating independent schools) don’t need to order standard materials as orders will be based on autumn census data.
  •                   2016 sample test materials are available on
