Cambridge Primary Checkpoint examinations
We have recently learned that it is a requirement of the Ministry of Education that we administer to students in Year 6 CIE Checkpoint exams.
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint is a new assessment for use in the final year of primary education. It enables schools to obtain an international benchmark of learner performance to identify and address learning needs in English, Mathematics and Science. This is an exciting prospect and will give the school and yourselves a useful signpost as to how your child is compared to other students sitting the same papers throughout the world.
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint is fully marked by Cambridge. The first Cambridge Primary tests will be taken in April 2012, provisionally between Saturday 21st and Monday 23rd.
The three examinations (Maths, English and Science) incur a charge of LE 600 and I would be grateful if you could pay this by Thursday 1st March to the business office. Please note, however, that we also need a copy of your son/ daughter’s passport or birth certificate as well as two passport sized photographs at the time of paying this amount.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
