What exams are there for Key stage 3?

Most schools will examine each of these units with a test. I have lots of practice tests for every unit. This will ensure you child gets a good result. At the end of the school year, most schools will have an end of year school exam. This is normally made up of past SATS based questions. I have the professional test base software which provides excellent preparation for the end of year school exams. It will train your child to answer the questions using key marking points. SATS at the end of year 9 are still carried out by schools. The main difference is that they are marked internally by the school teachers, rather than by an external board. The sats papers for most subjects can be downloaded online. They can be found here.
