Promotion Basis

Classes I to V

There is no formal examination system for these classes. The objective of assessment is to monitor a child’s level of development without comparing it with others. Through continuous evaluation, a comprehensive profile of his / her performance is assimilated and conveyed to the parents at least thrice a year. The assessment is recorded in the form of ‘Grade’ instead of ‘percentage’ to eliminate the negative factor inherent in ranking system.

Assessment Rules

  • Assessment will comprise of both formative and summative assessments.
  • Both formative and summative assessment will carry equal weightage.
  • Formatives will be held throughout the year regularly.
  • Summative will be held during a fixed period at the end of each term.
  • No assessment will be taken again incase of absenteeism whether it is formative or summative.
I Term April to August first week.

Summative – 10th August to 16th August.

II Term Second week of August to November

Summative – 15th Nov. to 22th Nov.

III Term December to March

Summatives - 7th March to 11th March.

It will be appropriate to mention here that parental participation in this system is of paramount importance. They should frequently contact the teachers to share their views and should also assist the school in helping the child to maximize and optimize his/her potential.

Classes VI to X

As per CBSE guidelines the school has incorporated Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation which refers to a system of school-based evaluation of students that covers all aspects of student’s development.

It means regularity of assessment, frequency of unit testing, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures, re-testing and feedback of evidence to teachers and students for their self-evaluation.

Evaluation attempts to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of students’ growth and development.

The students will be graded according to Absolute Grading pattern as mentioned below.


Marks Range Grade Grade Point
91-100 A1 10.0
81-90 A2 9.0
71-80 B1 8.0
61-70 B2 7.0
51-60 C1 6.0
41-50 C2 5.0
33-40 D 4.0
21-32 E1 -

The pass percentage in each subject for these classes is 40%. The General Science subject comprising of Physics, Chemistry and Biology is an integrated one and the aggregate of the three should be 40%. The same applies to Social Science comprising History, Geography and Civics. The pass percentage in the Third Language (Sanskrit/French or any other) is also 40%. The third language French will be granted from class VI onwards, based on the performance in languages in both English and Hindi, taking the last 3 years academic record into account, which should not be less than A2 Grade. Computer Education is treated as an academic subject and the marks obtained in the subject are converted into grades and reflected in the report card along with other subjects. The student must clear with 40% in Formative Assessment and Summative Assessment separately. Since Art Education, Work Experience, Physical Education and Club Portfolios are compulsory components of the curriculum, students must score at least ‘D’ Grade in Art, Music, Dance, Physical Education and any other activities introduced by the school from time to time. Community service also forms an integral part of the curriculum.

Class – XI

To earn a clear promotion to the 2nd year of the +2 stage (Class XII) a student must clear/pass in each of the five subjects (one core language + four electives). In subjects where practicals are involved, the rule of passing separately in theory and practical is applicable as per the norms of CBSE.

Special Note for Class XII

  • Students of class XII must pass in all the five subjects in their Unit Tests and Half Yearly Examination to become eligible for submission of forms for the Board Examination in the ensuing year.
  • They must also log in the minimum prescribed attendance of 75%.In the event of their failure to qualify academically or shortage of attendance, their forms will not be sent to the Board along with regular students in September/October. However, the forms of such students may be submitted in December provided they qualify the written examination and make up their deficiency in attendance. The Late fee will be payable by such students.

Other Rules Governing Promotion

  • Absence from the assessment/unit test/examinations in the system of continuous evaluation is not permitted. A student absenting himself/herself from assessment/unit test/examinations is not retested/ re-examined and loses the credits to the missed test / examination in the cumulative score.
  • Promotion is based on the year long continuous and comprehensive evaluation throughout the year.
  • FIRST TERM    - FA1 (10%) + FA2 (10%) + SA1 (20%)
    SECOND TERM - FA3 (10%) + FA4 (10%) + SA2 (40%)
    FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT  -  (FA) 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 40%
    SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT - (SA) 1 + 2 = 60%
  • A student whose attendance during the year is less than 85% (Classes VI - IX) and 75% (Class X, XI, XII) may not be promoted to the next higher class as per the CBSE rules. The school does not entertain any concession in the shortage of attendance or for the re-examination of the student who has failed to earn promotion to the next higher class.
  • A student repeating in any class up to IX is allowed to repeat the class for one year, but if he / she fails to earn clear promotion to the next higher class at the end of the repetition year, he/she is issued a transfer certificate.

PTM / Open House
