How well would you do in a year six SATs test? Find out here with our mock test.

This week thousands of year six children across the country received their SATs results.

But it appears parents in East Anglia are struggling to answer the questions themselves.

Tuition provider, Explore Learning, challenged parents to six SATS questions and found only 22% scored full marks.

The majority of parents stumbled on the literacy questions rather than the maths ones.

A question about relative clauses proved to be practically tricky with more than half of parents being unable to identify one in a sentence.

Almost a third of those also couldn’t recognise an adjective or a verb in a sentence.

Test yourself with the SATs questions above and share your score in the comments below.

Make sure you share this with other parents you know to see how well they do too.
