Classes I To V
To de-stress learning and not to give undue focus to the Terminal Examination, a Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is introduced in the primary classes. Cycle Tests have been introduced in these classes (Std. I to V). CCE is spread over the year. An Achievement Record is maintained for each student and this is the same format as specified by the CBSE Board. Cycle Test for these classes will be conducted on Friday.
Classes VI to X
The whole academic session is divided into two semesters. The First Semester is from April to September and the Second Semester is from October to March. Each semester will have two Formative Assessment and one Summative Assessment. Classes VI to X will have cycle test on Friday.
Promotion is based on the day-to-day work of the students throughout the year and also on the performance in the Semester (Terminal) Examination.
