There are two Cambridge Primary Checkpoint sessions a year. Each session lasts for a specified time-frame and the approximate timings of the sessions are:
- May series – the end of April and the beginning of May
- October series – the end of October and the beginning of November
The exact dates of the series may vary slightly from year to year. These are published each year in the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint and Cambridge Secondary Checkpoint Administrative Guide.
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint is a 'windowed set of exams' so schools can organise their own timetable within the time-frame that we specify. However, it should be stressed that, despite this flexibility, Cambridge Secondary Checkpoint and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint are still Cambridge tests and should be conducted under examination conditions.
