In each academic year, the school will hold the following tests carrying weightage as under :
|Half yearly Test
(Comprising Class and Homework, Projects and Assignments)
The objective of the test and the examination is not merely to record the pupil's achievements but also to assess and identify the needs and the points of weakness and strength. The results disclosed by these tests should be used by the teacher to adapt instruction more closely to the individual needs and capabilities of the people's and wherever necessary, to organise special instruction for the peoples in areas where their individual weakness has been disclosed.
Minimum Attendance Necessary for Annual Examination
A people may not be allowed to sit in the annual examination if he/she has not put in a minimum of 75% of the total attendance of the academic session, including attendance in previous school if the student has been admitted on transfer. The Principal is authorised to condone shortage in attendance upto 15% in special circumstances meriting this concession e.g. illness etc., i.e. permit a student with 60% attendance to take the annual examination.
Declaration of Results
The results of the annual examination declared by the Principal in the first week of April.
The final assessment of a people at the end of the academic year shall be based on his total achievements.
- If a pupil fails to appear either in the half-yearly examination of periodical tests on genuine grounds as illustrated in the following Article, he/she may be allowed proportionate credit for such a test or half-yearly examination for the purpose of final assessment for promotion to the next class in the following manner -
"The number of marks obtained by the various tests, sessional work and annual examination minus the periodical test or half-yearly examination, which he/she has missed, may be worked out. The total so arrived at, may be proportionately increased taking into account the maximum marks of the missing test".
- For example, for a people who has not appeared in the half-yearly examination, the total marks obtained by him on the basis of his annual record may e worked out for the miximum of 80 makrs (20 marks being assigned to half-yearly examination), and then projected to the maximum base of 10 marks. Thus, if the credit for a people for periodical test, class work and home assignments and annual examination works out to say, 60 out of 80, excluding the credit for half yearly test which he/she has missed due to illness, the total credit on the basis of the above formula will be 75 marks out of 100 marks.
- The same criteria shall be adopted for working out credit for any other periodical test which a pupil might have missed on account of illness etc.
- The above concession will be admissible only in the bonafide cases (i) of illness supported be medical certificate from a Government or Municipal Hospital, (ii) of transfer of parents during the period of examination, and (iii) where a student could not take the test or examination for reasons beyond his contral.
- A pupil, who fails to appear in the annual examination even through he/she has secured sufficient marks in periodical tests and half-yearly examination, will be deemed to have failed in the annual examination and shall not be promoted to the next higher class. Where, however, the absence from the annual examination was due to reasons beyond the control of the pupil, he/she will be given a supplementary examination on order of the Principal. The Principal may at his/her discretion refer cases to the Chairman whose decision will be final.
Given below is the grading system that would be applicable in the School :
||85% and above
||70% to 84%
||60% to 69%
||50% to 59%
||35% to 49%
Committee of Moderation
There shall be established two Committees of Moderation in the school - one for seniors (Class VI to XII) and the other for juniors (Class I to V). Each Committee shall have at least two and not more than three members besides the Principal. The Principal shall be the Chairman of both the Committees. The other members will include teachers of Commerce and Science Groups. These Committees will consider the type of questions to be asked in the annual examinations and also the standard of marking the answer papers. The Committees may meet before the examination papers are set and again they may meet after they are over and the scripts are marked and tabulation made to decide the cases of promotion/detention etc., before the results are actually announced. The minutes of Committee of Moderation will be approved by Chairman.
Detention of Students upto Class VIII
There will be no detention of students upto class VIII. The examination will, however, continue to be conducted as hither-to-for.
Detention of Candidates for Board's Examinations
"Heads of recognised institutions are not entitled to detain candidates who have fulfilled the conditions for permission to appear at the examination of the Board except for very grave reasons and with the previous sanction of the Chairman of the Board".
If suitable precautions are taken at the lower levels particularly in class IX there would be hardly any occasion to detain students under this clause for academic deficiencies. The parents in such cases should also be apprised of this well in time.
The Central Board permits students to take the examination in either English or Hingi. The school should give this option to the students regardless of the language in which instruction has been given in that school.
- Similar choice should be given to the students in the school test and examinations also.
Re-examination of Answer Papers in Annual or Other Internal Examinations
In case a complaint is received either by the Principal or by the Chairman, Managing Committee, in respect of marking of answer papers in any subject, the Principal may re-examine the paper himself or get it re-examined by any other examiner, and after satisfying himself that the paper has been properly re-assessed, inform the guardian of the result of such re-examination.
- Class up to class VIII. To pass an examination, a candidate must obtain not less than 33% marks in each subject and an aggregate of 35% for promotion. A student failing in one or two subjects may be granted promotion provided he/she has secured at least 30% marks in each of the failed subjects and has an aggregate of 35%.
- Classes IX and XI. A candidate should obtain not less than 35% marks in each subject and an aggregate of 40% for promotion. A student securing an aggregate of 40% but failing in one or two subjects by not more than 5 marks will be eligible to take the Supplenmentary Examination in the failing subjects to be held in first week of May and will be promoted to the next higher class subject to passing the examination.
