New SATs to be redesigned

Low scores from pupils taking part in the pilot of the new SATs tests have forced the Government to have a rethink.

Pupils will be given more time to complete the higher level sections. Also, procedures will be tightened to make sure that the right students sit the tests.

More than 400 schools have been taking part in a two-year pilot of the new tests, which are expected to replace KS2 and KS3 SATs from 2010.
