What to expect on the KS3 Maths exams

Students are awarded a grade of A* - E on their KS3 Maths exam. We’re going to provide you with some sample questions of what your kid can expect on the various KS3 Maths exams as taken from past papers used in England.

KS3 Maths exam questions - Year 7

Here are some example questions of what a Year 7 KS3 Maths exam could include:

  • Identify which numbers (from a set provided) round to 350 to the nearest ten

  • Mark on a line where a fraction’s position lies (i.e. 8/10)

  • Write down a large number that is given in words in figures

  • Using given equations to work out the value of “y”

KS3 Maths exam questions - Year 8

Here are some example questions of what a Year 8 KS3 Maths exam could include:

  • Working out coordinates on a graph

  • Working out the ratios of two sets of shapes to each other

  • Converting pounds (e.g. £300) into another currency based on the exchange rate provided

  • Working out the probability of an outcome of coins being flipped (e.g. two coins landing on tails)

KS3 Maths exam questions - Year 9

Here are some example questions of what a Year 9 KS3 Maths exam could include:

  • Working out percentages from a given statement (e.g. If John scored 31 out of 35 on his Year 9 KS3 exam, what percentage did John get correct?)

  • Working out the volume of a cylinder from a diagram with two measurements provided

  • Finding the lowest common multiple of two numbers provided

Are the KS3 Maths lessons important?

Yes, KS3 Maths lessons are hugely important for your child. There are a number of reasons for this but somewhere at the top of the list is the fact that KS3 Maths is the foundation for KS4 Maths, which is also compulsory. If your child struggles with KS3 Maths, they will find the next level even more difficult and it will keep getting harder to catch up.

Even if KS3 Maths is not your child’s favourite area to study, Maths is an important subject because many universities favour it if your child does want to go on to higher education. It’s important to keep the options open for your child even if they have no clue at this stage what career path to take. Acing KS3 Maths lessons and future Maths classes at school will give your child an advantage.

Apart from the future benefits, KS3 Maths lessons teach valuable skills that we end up using into our adulthood, and your kid will too. OK, some of the content isn’t as relevant as other areas and a bit trickier to put into practice but at this stage, much of the material can be applied in real life (e.g. working out the best deal, adjusting the quantities in a recipe, or quickly converting currency in your brain).

How to help your child with KS3 Maths revision

You can get as creative and colourful as you like with KS3 Maths revision. Repetition will help your child out enormously. Here are some suggestions to keep your kid motivated and in the habit of doing regular KS3 Maths revision.

Make posters with key information from KS3 Maths lessons

This may not be the styling you’re looking for at home but keeping visual references around the house (or at least their room) keeps things fresh in their mind. This works best for any equations, functions, or values they need to know off by heart.

Find KS3 Maths lessons on video

If your child is finding some of the KS3 Maths concepts challenging (and there will be at least a few) then give in to screentime. You’ll find short explanatory videos online for most KS3 Maths topics. Often, having someone explain it in a slightly different way or more slowly than in class will give your kid the lightning bolt moment they need.

Go over practice KS3 Maths exams

Going over past or sample KS3 Maths exams will not only prepare your child for the stress of the day but also identify any gaps in knowledge. If there’s a type of question they keep getting wrong, it’s time to focus on that. Sometimes, your kid may feel like they understand a KS3 Maths concept but when it comes to putting it into action, there is a bit missing.

Call in KS3 Maths private tuition

Calling in KS3 Maths private tuition is like calling in positive enforcement. Private KS3 Maths tutoring isn’t just for when times get tough. At this level, many parents start enlisting the help of a Private KS3 Maths tutor so it helps get their kids on the front foot.

KS3 Maths online tutoring is also about nurturing your kid’s confidence. We find that many pupils at this age are hesitant to speak up in class and ask all of the questions they really have. Asking a private KS3 Maths tutor takes away this dread and any worry about peers (or even their teacher) thinking they’re silly or laughing at them.

KS3 Maths online tutoring or in-person?

KS3 Maths online tutoring offers a safe barrier for your child to feel safe asking questions even if they feel they are stupid (of course, as adults we know there is no such thing as a stupid question but kids still feel embarrassed). A KS3 Maths online tutor can provide support from what is seen as a safe distance for the student.
