Year 4 Multiplication Timestable Check (MTC)

Multiplication Tables Check


What is the Multiplication Tables Check?

The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) is a key stage 2 assessment that is taken by pupils at the end of Year 4 (June). The aim of the MTC is to make sure the times tables knowledge is at the expected level. The multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools. The MTC is an online test where the pupils are asked 25 questions on times tables 2 to 12.  The questions are generated randomly based on the rules of the MTC.


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 the best results. It is extremely important that your child uses TT Rockstars on a daily basis to help them improve their stat scores.
