As part of this phase, the students will participate in the Cambridge International Primary Checkpoint Examinations with an exit exam at Grade 6 level. Grade 6 is the last year of this phase. Students have different subjects and teachers. Homework is given and formal examinations written. They are guided to cope with more advanced academic work and greater independence. Percentages are given in reports. At the end of this Phase, they are ready for the Senior Phase.
