Year 4 Multiplication tables check

In June 2019, a new Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) will be trialled across the UK, becoming statutory in 2020. 

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether year 4 pupils can fluently recall their multiplication tables.
The MTC is focused on the fluent recall of multiplication facts. This is included in the national curriculum (2014) statutory programme of study for mathematics at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The national curriculum states, ‘By the end of year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table and show precision and fluency in their work’.

The MTC will be delivered as an online, on-screen digital assessment and will take each pupil less than 5 minutes to complete. 

Please see the parent's guide below for more information and the links to games and other activities to support your child's preparation for the test.
