Examinations:

According to the new pattern of education, the Semester System is introduced in the middle school for classes V - VII. Accordingly the academic year is divided in two viz., June to September and October to March. Each semester will be followed by an evaluation and vacation. Since the system of making known the marks is abolished, the students/parents will have no access to the answer papers. The grades that are awarded will be recorded in the progress report and the same will have to be duly signed and retained by the parents. Progress Reports will be sent to the parents only after the semester evaluation. However, unit tests will be held regularly by the teachers who handle the subjects.

Subject wise project works will have to be prepared by the students under the guidance of the teachers. The same will be evaluated by the teachers and recorded along with the oral evaluations.

1. When a pupil is compelled by circumstances to be absent for any one of the evaluation (even if it be for any one subject), he must obtain leave of absence from Headmaster, in advance.

2. Unjustified absence for any of the evaluation or tests will adversely affect the promotion of the pupil at the end of the year
