Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)


The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) was officially announced by the Department for Education (DfE) in September 2017. It will be administered for children in Year 4, starting in the 2019-20 academic year. Primary-school children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12x12.


Information about supporting your child to prepare can be found in the PowerPoint below or by visiting


Please note that the rapid recall of division facts is also integral to the check therefore these also require regular practise. It is also essential that children routinely practise these online, using a keyboard, in order to familiarise themselves with the keyboard layout.


A list of useful websites for regular practise, including the test format, are also listed below:
