Hi Does anyone know how the levels split for ks2 maths on the link in guest55's post in the maths section the threshold tables don't distinguish between level 5a,5b,5c but just have level 5 as generally over 77/78 out of 100 are the levels equal ie 5a>93 5b>85 5c>78 (i posted this on maths forum but got no answer)

Yes I think you are right.
I can't give you a definitive but according to my son's sats (2006) the L5 threshold was as follows.

Reading 33/50
Writing 37/50
English overall 70/100

Maths 78/100
Science 62/80

Although there is no such thing as sublevels in the Sats....according to my son's teacher at that time the sub levels were usually calculated within the school as thirds

Therefore with the english overall 5c - 70-79, 5b 80-89, 5a 90 -100

This would have given my son 5a in Science and Maths & 5c in English... which is what the school had predicted.

thanks chad looking back through previous posts it seems that the sub levels are not official and so the schools decide them i suppose thirds are the easiest

TREE, ive already posted one on the maths forum but in my school they always use sub-levels and they will in the sats-
Maths-
5c=79-85
5b=86-93
5a=94-100

Not sure what it is in english but we will not have science in the sats.
Last time i got 93/100 which means i got 5b so i was very close to 5a

It's fine to use the 5 sub levels as a guide, as long as you appreciate there are no sub levels awarded for KS2. You will simply be awarded a level 5.

The levels quoted by the school (if they are for a KS2 exam) are a very loose guesstimate.

These are the level thresholds for last year

These were weird because in my school in english as overall to get a 5 you need 70/100 and in maths to achieve a 5 you need 79/100

These were the thresholds for last years KS2 exam. The thresholds are different for each exam year (but they are broadly similar)

for example these are the level thresholds for 2005

English overall

Level Mark range
N 0 -20
2 21 -23
3 24 -41
4 42 -67
5 68 -100

Key stage 2 mathematics 2005

Level Mark range
N 0 -16
2 17 -19
3 20 -47
4 48 -77
5 78 -100

The school shouldn't have any say in the levels. These are set by the QCA/NAA.
