SATs Results 2024: What You Need To Know

It won’t be long before the SATs results 2024 loom into focus again. At Third Space Learning as usual our aim is to provide you with as much information and insight as we can give you about these results in a timely fashion.

For now, all we know is that the SATs results in 2024 will be released in July. Last year, the SATs results came out on 11th July 2023 so we can assume similar timings for this year as this is the expected standard. We also have provisional test dates over a week period for KS2 which we’ll also include in this article.

We will be following all the developments this SATs season and this blog will act as a live tracker of all things related to the KS2 results for SATs 2024. As the KS1 SATs are now optional, we’ll be focusing predominantly on KS2. It will be regularly updated with all of the results, SATs data, question types, and analysis throughout this academic year.
