What is the Multiplications Tables Check

The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) is a key stage 2 assessment to be taken by pupils at the end of year 4 (in June). The purpose of the MTC is to make sure the times tables knowledge is at the expected level.

The MTC is an online test were the pupils are asked 25 questions on times tables 2 to 12. For every question you have 6 seconds to answer and in between the questions there is a 3 second rest. Questions about the 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12 times table come up more often. The questions are generated randomly based on the rules of the Multiplication Tables Check.

How to prepare

A good way to prepare is start early and build a daily routine practising the times tables. With regular practise you will learn all the questions and gain confidence. We suggest practising 10 to 15 minutes a day for optimal results.

A good start is to make first the five step plans for all the times tables to make sure you made all the questions and have good basic knowledge of the times tables. Then you make the MTC on this page and see how you are doing and were to focus on. When you like to improve your speed or focus on a few times tables, you can use the speed test, diploma’s, worksheets or play games like My Smart Horse to practise.

The MTC on this page will help to become more comfortable with reading and answering on a screen.
