The Cambridge Secondary 1 Progression Tests are a series of tests covering stages 7, 8 and 9. Schools can use them to monitor the progress of learners as individuals or in classes. For each subject (including English as a second language), each stage test has two papers. Maths has a third short paper for assessing mental skills. The tests have structured questions with a selection of item types, including multiple choice, short and extended answer.

The tests are marked in Cambridge and provide schools with an external international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report, giving schools detailed information and parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
A foundation for progression
Cambridge Secondary 1 provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Secondary 2 and other educational programmes. Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint tests can be used to monitor learners’ readiness for the next stage of education.
Cambridge Secondary 1 includes two testing options: Cambridge Secondary 1 Progression Tests and Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint. These assessments provide an international benchmark of student achievement, helping teachers to identify learners’ strengths and weaknesses and give advice on progression routes.
Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Secondary 1 has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools.
Schools can use Cambridge Secondary 1 with other curricula. No part of the programme is compulsory, so teachers can use the materials to suit their own situation.
Comprehensive support for teachers
Support includes face-to-face and online training, curriculum frameworks, teacher guides, lists of resources and a secure support site.
