Students achieving a total of 15, 30, 45, 60 or 75 of the available 100 points are eligible for Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond Interim Certificates respectively. These certificates can be downloaded from Teach Cambridge under 'Teaching, Planning' and be awarded by the centre when each milestone is reached.
A student achieving 15 points can be awarded a Bronze Certificate and then go on to get a Silver Certificate by accumulating another 15 points, making a total of 30 points. Further certificates are awarded for every additional 15 points.
Many teachers actively encourage students to monitor their own progress as a fundamental part of the recognition of achievement. A student who is aware, for example, that 28 points have already been achieved is likely to make the additional extra effort in order to obtain a Silver Certificate in the shortest possible time.
