When referring to a list of items that you check off as you complete, would the British say, "checklist," "tick box," or something else?


Most commonly it would be called a Ticklist. It can also be sent as Tick list.


It should be a "checklist" (a list of things that you must think about, or that you must remember to do). British English: to tick, is to put a mark [✓] by an answer to show that it is correct. You can tick the box too!
