In Year 6, at the end of Key Stage 2, students sit the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science. Exams are taken under strict conditions (subject to inspection from Cambridge regional management) and are marked by members of the Cambridge exam staff in the UK. The results of these examinations are given as a score ranging from 0.0 to 6.0. A score of 3.0 or better shows that the student has a sound understanding of the curriculum.
2019 Primary and Secondary Cambridge Checkpoint Exams
We celebrate with 32 of our younger students for scoring 6.0 in at least one of their Checkpoint subjects – especially India Smuthkochorn and Natt Kritchanarat, who achieved perfect scores in all three subjects (Mathematics, English and Science). Our warmest congratulations go out to all HeadStart students and teachers for the effort and hard work that was necessary to gain these fantastic results. Overall,
- 89% of all scores were 3.0 or higher: “A sound understanding of the curriculum”
- 37% of all scores were 5.0 or higher: “An excellent understanding of the curriculum”
- 16% of all scores were 6.0 (The maximum score available)
