    You'll be fine, they don't mean much. Just go over some material in the holidays. Only thing they can possibly affect is your GCSE predictions, which don't mean squat - I know someone predicted an E in Chemistry that got an A* and someone predicted an A that got a borderline D in English.

    Well, I didn't take ks3 sats. Is there a specific syllabus of things you need to know, or things they've said you need to know? If there is, make some notes (with colours/diagrams) and read them over. Try and get your hands on some past papers. If there isn't anything in particular you need to know just practice the basics, e.g. basic algebra, writing a letter, knowing what apparatus looks like for science.

    Start tomorrow, you're back to school in a week (I'm guessing). When do you take them?

    The sixteenth? Lucky you!

    In that case, start next week at the latest. But do look over the past papers - they're the best help you'll get.

    Don't stress about them!

    I don't think anyone expects you to revise for your sats.
    Just make sure you do all your homework and concentrate in lessons.

    If you really want to revise you should get some revision guides, the CGP ones are good. I'm not sure about the english one but for maths and science you can just read them and work through the questions.

    It depends how clever you are, some people don't need to revise and still get A's but if you do need to revise (like me) then i'd start revision now, using cue/index cards is really useful.
    These exams can be slightly important purely for sets in Year 10 which will make a difference but they don't make too much difference. Don't worry about them though, they're quite easy.
