Thousands of Suffolk and Essex pupils have endured Key Stage 2 SATs tests this week – now’s your chance to see how you would do.

This quick quiz features questions taken from official SATs papers and tests your arithmetic, spelling and grammar.

Students in year 6 from across the UK have participated in reading, arithmetic, reasoning and spelling tests this week.

They are not allowed calculators in the exams and must show their working to achieve top marks.

SATs exams are compulsory but have attracted criticism from some parents and teachers for being too harsh.
