Middle School - Checkpoint

Grade 6,7 and 8

Cambridge Checkpoint is a unique service and an invaluable tool for students. It enables access to standardised tests that provide feedback on a student's strengths and weaknesses in key curriculum areas. Feedback of this kind is an invaluable source of information. Teachers and Parents will be able to make strategic decisions, drawing upon a pool of information and specialist reporting tools built into Checkpoint. Students at international schools will have a transferable indication of their academic progress.

Advantages of Checkpoint:
  • The Checkpoint curriculum was designed to cover core content necessary for study towards the IGCSE Program.
  • Checkpoint scores are also useful predictors of future IGCSE grades in the same subject. Research has shown, not surprisingly, that candidates with a given Checkpoint score can go on to achieve a range of IGCSE results, depending on how well they prepared.
  • They are an invaluable tool to inform students/teachers/parents about suitable exam entries for students, for example to provide evidence about which IGCSE tier to prepare for.
At FLAG, we shall be taking the Checkpoint examination in English, Mathematics and Science. This shall be done at the end of Grade 8. Thus in Grade 7 and Grade 8 we shall prepare the students for the Checkpoint examination based on the syllabus issued by the University of Cambridge International Examinations for the respective subjects as stated earlier.

Further, we shall be having an in-house examination for Hindi, French, Social Sciences and Humanities as well at the end of Grade 8.
