    Thanks Naziha. My background is in Australian secondary schools. We do not use the English Checkpoint tests in that context, so I am not very familiar with them. You may look at University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate 2007 if you haven’t already, and there are textbooks like Checkpoint English by Sue Hackman and Alan Howe, Revised by Sue Bonnett, which may help you.
