Cambridge Primary/ Secondary Progression tests

Cambridge Progression testsare optional tests which serve to estimate pupils’ knowledge according to international standards. This allows teachers to assess the progress/digression of an individual and the whole class as well, and to inform both children and their parents about the level they've reached. These tests help you to follow the progress course of your children’s knowledge on the programme. Cambridge Progression tests start from the 3rdgrade. They can be taken whenever the teacher feels that the class is ready to take a test of this kind. These tests are optional, free (included in the programme) and they are marked by our school’s Cambridge Programme teachers.
The tests:

  • Enable learning to be assessed each year
  • Provide detailed information about the performance of each learner for stages 3, 4, 5 and 6
  • Enable teachers to give structured feedback to learners and parents
  • Enable teachers to compare strengths and weaknesses of individuals and groups
  • Are marked by teachers in your school
  • Come with clear guidance, standards and mark schemes
  • Can be used any time in the year, as many times as needed

Cambridge Primary/ Secondary 1 Checkpoint tests
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint test is designed to help pupils learn by providing comprehensive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in the key curriculum areas – English, mathematics and science.
The tests are exclusively available to schools that offer Cambridge Primary and are generally taken at the end of the final year of the programme. They are marked by Cambridge and provide schools with an international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report, giving schools invaluable information and parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
We hold two Cambridge Primary Checkpoint test series each year, covering all major areas of learning in the Cambridge Primary curriculum frameworks for English, mathematics and science.

Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint tests have been designed to assess learners at the end of Cambridge Secondary 1. They are available in English, English as a second language, mathematics and science, and 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. 
We hold two Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint test series each year, in May and October at the end of the ninth grade. The tests cover all major areas of learning in the Cambridge Secondary 1 curriculum frameworks for English, English as a second language, mathematics and science.
The reports that pupils, teachers and the school gets from Cambridge are very detailed.
The report on a learner gives:

  • A Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint score for the whole subject
  • A Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint score for each main topic/skill
  • A list of the questions (and the sub-topics/skills) where the candidate’s performance was particularly strong or particularly weak
  • A statement of achievement.

The report on a teaching group gives:

  • An average Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint score for the whole subject
  • An average Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint score for each main topic/skill
  • A list of sub-topics/skills with comments on the performance of the group
  • The Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint scores of each learner on the subject and on each main topic/skill
  • The marks scored by each learner on each question.

The report on a school gives:

  • An average Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint score for the whole subject
  • An average Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint score for each main topic/skill
  • A list of sub-topics/skills with comments on the performance of the learners.

The end-of-session report gives the results of the whole cohort, from all schools worldwide, broken down by age and first language, so that schools can compare their own results with those of similar learners. The report also gives the examiner’s comments on the test.
Cambridge  Secondary Checkpoint are also not obligatory but if pupils want to get the Statement of Achievement, they have to take the exam which, unlike Progression tests, is not free. Pupils have right to take this exam twice a year, first time in April and second time in October.

It is important to mention that in the end of the ninth grade, at the end of Cambridge Secondary 1, the pupils have right to choose if they will take the final external graduation exam which is part of natinal programme, or they will take only Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint­ or they will take both exams.
