Students will be assessed on the basis of the weekly tests also. Monthly Tests will be conducted as a part of the evaluation. Test papers/note books will be returned to students within five days. Parents are requested to sign the test papers and maintain effective communication with the school.
Besides doing away with the concept of pass/ fail system up to class V, the assessment focuses on the positive aspects of the child’s development during this stage. Accordingly, Achievement Records for the upper primary classes are developed with the objective of facilitating holistic learning.

PROMOTION

  1. Promotion of the pupil is granted on the basis of the whole year’s performance; hence the regularity in attendance and work is essential.
  2. A detailed report of students studying in lower primary and upper primary section will be given by the home room teacher during Parent – Teacher Interaction.
  3. The following rules as directed by the CBSE will be strictly followed in all the classes.
ExamTerm-1Term-2Total
Percentage50%50%100%

 40 % aggregate marks should be obtained by the pupil to be promoted to the next grade.

4. Promotion Policy in Grade IX – X

 The guidelines given by the CBSE will be strictly followed. Two languages, Mathematics, Science & Social Science will be considered at par for the promotion purpose.

Consistent neglect of the academic work will be condoned. In view of the system of periodic tests and the year’s average in determining eligibility for promotion, it will not be possible to hold makeup exams.

A student must secure overall 40% marks to seek promotion to the next class. It is mandatory to score minimum 35% marks (exclusively in theory) in each subject to be promoted to the next class, i.e. Grade X.
