There are two Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint sessions a year. Each session lasts for a specified time-frame and the approximate timings of the sessions are:
- May series – from beginning of April and the beginning of May
- October series – from the beginning 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 Handbook which can be found on the public website here.
Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint are 'window 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 Lower Secondary Checkpoint are still Cambridge tests and should be conducted under examination conditions.
