To ask the Secretary of State for Education pursuant to the answer of 1 July 2013, Official Report, columns 530-32W, on National Curriculum tests, what specific disruptions and risks to the delivery of Key Stage 2 tests occurred in 2012.

The specific disruption encountered during the delivery of key stage 2 tests in 2012 was the number of registrations for the level 6 tests during the two weeks before test week. About 25% of total registrations were made during this time, which was well in excess of the number of registrations expected at this time.

One of the challenges and risks to operational delivery arising from this was the manufacture and delivery of a significant amount of test materials to schools in a very short space of time.
