Examination and Grades

Evaluation of Students

Evaluation of students’ performance by test, examinations and assignments is very vital to help the student and the guardian to understand the progress the student is making in the class. It also aids the teacher and the school to gauge the students’ progress and enables the school to advice parents regarding their ward. Class quizzes are given at the discretion of the teacher. It is, however, expected that the teacher will use this method to evaluate the students and to motivate them to study.

Besides class tests two mid term and two term examinations are conducted and progress reports are sent to the parents after each of these examinations. The final term examination covers entire class syllabus.

A student who is absent from any examination cannot be expected to take a special examination. If for any unavoidable reason, a special examination is requested, approval for it will have to be given by the Principal and a special fee has to be paid. Any unfair and dishonest practice in the examination will be treated as very serious offence. Offences such as copying, showing answer papers to other students, passing materials to other students, talking to another student etc. are strictly prohibited. Students indulging in any of these will be asked to leave the examination hall and the matter will be reported to the chief invigilator and Principal immediately. Such students will be debarred from taking the remaining exams of that period. This will result in failure in that standard that year.

Preliminary Examinations (Std X & XII)

Students of Standard X and XII are given Preliminary Examinations in January before final board examination and are compulsory for the candidates who appear for ICSE and ISC examination. Each student is required to clear all subjects in this examination if not the status of the candidate will be debarred for mentioned examination.

Answer Papers

The student’s answer papers of all examinations except the final exam are given to students to be taken home.

Promotion

For standards Nursery – Standard III there is no one being withheld. Standard IV to IX, and XI, the minimum pass mark in each subject is 45%. For promotion, a student must have 45% in each of six subjects including English. Moral Instruction and Environmental Education are a compulsory subjects and failure in these will lead to promotion being withheld.

Transfer Certificate and Withdrawal

Transfer Certificate will be issued to a withdrawing student only if his/her accounts are settled and other clearances such as the library and hostels are obtained. A student should give at least ten days’ prior notice to the school for his/her transfer certificate.

No refund of the tuition fees and development fee. Deposit money for hostel students is refundable if not used by the student in sickness or emergency .The term fee is charged to a student who withdraws during the term.

A class teacher, apart from the subject teachers, is assigned to each class for general supervision, student counseling, and help to assist the school administration. Students who have personal or academic problems may seek help from their class teacher. General activities of the class will be under the supervision of the class teacher. When various school functions and activities are organized, the class teacher will supervise the group.

Private Tuition

Students or guardians are not to seek any private tuition from any member of the staff of the school or of the entire institution or from any student in the entire institution or anyone else staying within the school campus without specific permission from the Principal.

If a student needs tuition, it must be arranged through the Principal of the school. Making private arrangement, as mentioned earlier, is a very serious offence and may make the student liable for withdrawal. Request for private tuition may be placed with the Headmaster/Supervisors of the school who shall forward the same to the Principal.

The school is very anxious to avoid any malpractice in regard to finances and if there is any indication that any such practice is being followed, it will be considered as serious offence and breach of agreement with the school. This may even mean withdrawal of the student from the school.

Guardians and students are advised to report to the Principal any attempt on the part of anyone connected with the school to take any undue advantage of his/her position, or put any pressure for material or monetary benefit or any suggestion of monetary or material consideration.

Class Teacher Awards

Ranks and Divisions are not awarded. Each ward is encouraged to obtain maximum marks (100 out of 100) in each subject rather then competing with one another. The progress reports are based on the student’s academic performance. Awards will be given to the students who excel academically as well as in good conduct.

ICSE and ISC Certificates

IMPORTANT NOTE:The responsibility for the correct selection of subjects to meet university or professional requirements of a candidate or candidates will be that of the school. School will not offer any courses for which there is no adequate provision made for infrastructure/classroom/qualified teacher.
