Exam Pattern and Grading System

As per the new pattern, students will be assessed in two areas – Scholastic and Co-scholastic. For assessment of scholastic areas, the academic year is divided in two terms and two types of tests will be conducted to assess the academic subjects.

Formative Assessment

In primary classes, the formative assessment will include dictation, an oral test, a class test, home work, class work, assignments and projects, a memory test, storytelling, a quiz, elocution or any other tool found suitable by the teacher.

Summative Assessment

Under the end of term summative assessment, students will be tested internally. The summative assessment will be conducted as a pen-and-paper test by schools themselves at the end of each term; twice a year.

Primary Classes (Five-Point Scale)

Grade 1 Outstanding A+ 90% to 100 %
Grade 2 Excellent A 75% to 89 %
Grade 3 Very Good B 56% to 74 %
Grade 4 Good C 35% to 55 %
Grade 5 Scope for Improvement D Below 35 %

Preparation

Hard work and focus are the keys to cracking exams and Olympiads. However, all subjects require some special and specific tips which you can find below:

  • English: Focus on grammar and writing as these are sections where students tend to lose maximum marks. Practice writing and solving exam papers along with grammar questions like editing and omission of paragraphs. These require intensive practice and demand students to be thorough.
  • Mathematics: Stick to concept building first. Be thorough with NCERT textbooks before moving to R.S. Aggarwal books for your Olympiad study. NCERT contains many conceptual questions and will help you build a strong base.
  • Environmental Studies: These are your formative years and that is why you should pay attention to the basics. It demands intensive study and you should make sure that you understand all concepts well for solving problems, if any.
  • Hindi: Language demands very solid base and at this early stage, you must focus on sentence and paragraph making. Regular practice will help you in increasing your hold on Hindi.
