Does our school have to follow the Cambridge Lower Secondary curriculum frameworks to use the Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint Tests?

The Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint assessments are designed to match the Cambridge curriculum framework for each subject.


Many schools teach a Cambridge curriculum together with another curriculum (e.g. a national curriculum) for the same subject. If you are doing this, then please make sure that learners will have covered all of the relevant Cambridge curriculum framework before doing Lower Secondary Checkpoint. This is to avoid learners being unsettled by encountering unfamiliar concepts during an assessment.


Schools have to be registered for Cambridge Lower Secondary to enter candidates for Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint.
