Exam & Promotion
CBSE insists on CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) of students. CCE is based on the performance of a child in regular scholastic activities and periodic co scholastic activities.
Every academic year is divided in to ‘Term1 ( from April to September)’ and ‘Term 2 ( from October to March)’. During the first term, the student will have two Pre Midterm tests ( Pre Midterm tests 1 & 2) and a Midterm test. Similarly, the second term will have Post Midterm tests 1& 2 followed by Terminal test.
Assessment will be on the basis of Unit tests, assignments, C.W., H.W., Practical work, Projects, Oral testing, Quiz, experiments and other activities in the class.
Students of Middle school & Secondary classes are assessed with the conventional ‘numerical marking’ scheme in the following subjects- English, II language, Mathematics, Science , Social Science, III language and also in the ‘ Fundamentals of IT’. Based on marks, grades will be awarded.
