Hi,

daughter will be doing 11+ in Jan 2010. Have just had year 5 sats results and she got straight 5's for all literacy, reading, spelling etc... and 3a for maths which she found a bit more difficult.
Am pretty new to this sats thing so does anyone know if these marks are going to get her through a 11+ exam next year ok?
Thanks.
:)

Hi blue

I think a lot depends on the region you are in and the format of the 11+ there. For verbal reasoning those results are probably OK although the Maths is a little low, for individual English, Maths etc she may struggle on the Maths front. I suggest you post in the specific region forum to get a more knowledgable answer.

Hi Blue

The 5's are really good and the 3a may need a little work. :D

presumably for 11+s which are VR questions only, the most important SATs to do well in are the reading ones (comprehension, interpretation, vocab etc)? My boy got a 5 (year 5) in this one - they don't split them into a/b/c etc for a 5 in Y5 at our school. But his maths was 4a. His mental maths is fab so am hoping that will be enough for the maths component of the VR tests. Yes? No?

Milla - my eldest got a 4a in maths at the end of year 5 (in fact he didn't get a level 5 in anything until year 6). He passed the 11+ by a lot and was a level 8 in maths by year 8. So try not to worry!

My son too achieved a 4a in Maths in Y5 and a level 5 in Y6. Provided his timetables are quick and his mental maths is good, he should be fine.

My son achieved a good mark in his VR based 11+. Good Luck.

Does anyone know then whether it is common practice to just grade level 5 as a whole as not as 5a, 5b etc... in year 5? :roll:
