Our aim is to make the tests available as early as possible to give schools the option to use them for slightly different purposes. Test material will be sent out in two main windows:

  • Late November for Year 6 suite 1 and suite 2 progress tests and Year 3, 4 and 5 tests. 

  • Year 2 tests and the Year 6 science tests will be sent to schools in February.

Any subsequent orders will be fulfilled without delay, subject to stock.

Modified versions (braille and modified large print) will also be available to order from November.

Teacher guides (containing mark schemes and administration guidance) will be available electronically via your login to the MERiT system. Teacher guides will be available after the tests have been released.
