Do you want to set your child on the path to getting qualifications that are accepted by universities and employers around the world?

The Cambridge International Examinations Primary Checkpoint Programme develops Mathematics, English and Science skills and knowledge in young children aged five to 11 years.

It can help your child by:

  • allowing teachers to assess their learning as they progress
  • developing their skills so that they are innovative, confident and engaged
  • preparing them for Lower Secondary Checkpoint and IGCSEs/International GCSEs
  • giving them a love of learning that will stay with them through school, university and beyond.

The tests are marked by Cambridge International Examinations and provide an external international benchmark for your child’s performance.

Every year, the British Council helps more than two million people take international exams. We are here to help you at every stage of your child’s education – from choosing subjects to registering for exams.
