Examinations and Promotions
The Student’s Progress, assessed by means of tests and term examinations will be communicated to the parents from time to time. Promotion to the next class depends on the performance of the pupils throughout the year.
Promotion to the next class will be based on the following criteria:-
10% of 2 test marks 2 x 10% = 20%
20% of I Term Exam (September) Marks 20%= 20%
60% of Final Exam Mark 60%= 60%
Participation in Tests and Exams is very essential as a certain percentage of marks count for the final Promotion.
Pass Marks = I – VI 50%
VII – X 45%
XI & XII 40%
The decision of the Principal and teachers is final. Incase a student is unable to appear for an examination, there will not be any re-examination.
Students who are detained in the same class for two years will have to leave school.
Notice of withdrawal of a student during the academic year should be given at the beginning of the term and the fee for the full term should be paid. Parents wishing to withdraw their children at the end of the academic year must inform the Principal in writing before 30 th March. Otherwise the term fees will be charged and the school leaving certificate will be issued only after the school re-opens.
