Prior to 2016, many children took optional SATs in Years 3, 4 and 5 to assess their learning. From 2016, a new style of SATs is being introduced to reflect changes to the National Curriculum. These official Year 4 optional maths SATs from 2003 are the 'old-style' papers, but are still useful for giving your child exam practice and brushing up on number skills.
This pack includes:
- Y4 maths SATs 2003 paper 4a (levels 2-3)
- Mark scheme, paper 4a
- Y4 maths SATs 2003 paper 4b (levels 3-4)
- Mark scheme, paper 4b
- Mental maths pupil answer sheet
- Mental maths test transcript
All the papers and marking materials have been merged into one easy download.
Paper 4a or Paper 4b?
A choice of two test papers is available, depending on your child's ability (some of the questions are the same for both papers). If your Y4 child finds maths challenging they should complete Paper A. If your child is confident about maths they should take Paper B. For more about understanding SATs results see our parent's guide.
