Cambridge Checkpoint tests have been designed to assess learning at the end of Cambridge Secondary 1. They give valuable feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses before they progress to the next stage of education.

The tests are marked in Cambridge and provide schools with an external international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report, giving schools detailed information and parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
Scores on the Cambridge Checkpoint scale are from 0.0 (lowest level of ability) to 6.0 (the highest level of ability).
