Worksheet Overview

This is a practice Arithmetic paper in the style of a Key Stage 2 National Test.


This is an assessment with a variety of arithmetic questions.

Some are multiple-choice and some will require you to type in an answer.


In the real Key Stage 2 National Test, you will write your answers in a special test booklet, normally in a box or space.

You will also write any working out or jottings in the booklet.


At EdPlace, you will use the computer to enter your answers and you should use a pencil and paper to complete your workings.

You must not use a calculator. 


This paper includes a variety of types of reasoning questions.


You should work quickly and carefully through the questions. 

The timer is set for 40 minutes for this practice paper, although you can keep working after the timer has run out.

There are 23 questions. This means that you should aim for no more than 2 minutes per question and hopefully, as you become more confident, less than 1 minute.

Most questions are worth 1 mark and require you to choose an answer or type an answer in. These questions will be marked automatically.

Some questions are worth 2 marks and require you to explain your reasoning. These questions will need to be marked by an adult.


You may find some of the questions difficult.

If you are struggling to answer a question do not waste time on it, but move onto the next question.
