The Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Lower Secondary Checkpoint Programme develops Mathematics, English and Science skills and knowledge.
It can help your child by:

  • allowing teachers to assess their learning as they progress
  • developing their global outlook and equipping them for success in the modern world
  • preparing them for IGCSEs/International GCSEs.

Children sit Checkpoint tests at the end of Grade 8 and Pre-IGCSE at 14–15 years. The tests are marked by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and provide an external international benchmark for your child’s performance.
