Primary school children were left in tears after taking ‘one of the hardest’ tests teachers have ever seen.
Around 600,000 children across the country took the tougher new key stage 2 tests, which are designed to measure students’ abilities in reading, writing and math.
Ministers have made the tests more difficult as they look to raise standards.
However, it has emerged that many pupils were left in tears after taking exams that some believe were more suitable for 15 year-olds.
