Examination & Promotion

Academic structure and evaluation process for the academic year 2017-2018 for classes S1 – S3

As you are aware, the CBSE has reintroduced Board Examination for class X from Academic Year 2017-18 onwards.

The new scheme for classes VI-VIII has been designed on Term Assessment basis with gradual increase in the learning assessment as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the whole syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X Board examination, and would thus, ensure the ‘quality of education’.

Scholastic Area:

The assessment structure and examination for classes VI to VIII comprises of two terms i.e. Term-1 and 2 as explained:

Co-Scholastic Activities (Classes VI-VIII):

For the holistic development of the student, co-curricular activities in the following areas be carried out.

  2. Art Education (Visual & Performing Art)
  3. Health and Physical Education (Sports/Martial Arts/Yoga/NCC etc.)

Discipline (Classes VI-VIII):

The students will also be assessed for the discipline which will be based on the factors like attendance, sincerity, behaviour, values, tidiness, respectfulness for rules and regulations, attitude towards society, nation and others. Grading on Discipline will be done term-wise on a 3-point grading scale (A=Outstanding, B=Very Good and C=Fair)
