Hundreds of 11-year-old students across Camden, Barnet and Haringey sat their SATs exams last week - but how would you fare?
Year six pupils sitting the exams were asked to identify subordinate clauses, antonyms and sentences in the present perfect tense, as well as modal verbs and split digraphs.
We’ve pulled together a selection of questions from last year’s exams - the first to test pupils on a new primary curriculum introduced in 2014.
Last year in Camden, 61pc of pupils achieved expected standards in all three areas – 8pc higher than the England average of 53pc.
In Haringey, that figure was 56pc and in Barnet it was 59pc.

In Camden’s best-performing school – Hampstead Parochial Church of England Primary School in Holly Bush Vale – 97 per cent of pupils reached expected standards in reading, while 93pc did so in writing and 97pc in arithmetic.
The key stage two exams are the second set of two SATs exams for pupils - with the first being taken at the end of key stage one, when they are six or seven years old.

Earlier this year, education secretary Justine Greening announced plans to scrap the first set.
Many say the pressure of exams is too much at a young age, and the Department for Education says the proposal would reduce the burden of tests on both pupils and teachers.
