Exam Pattern and Grading for Class 5

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

Formative Assessment

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 appropriate by the teacher.

Summative Assessment

You will also 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.

Preparation Tips for Class 5

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 areas where students tend to lose maximum marks. This would require intensive practice, and demand that students be thorough.
  • Mathematics: Stick to concept building first. Be thorough with NCERT textbooks before moving on 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. You should make sure that you understand all concepts well before solving problems, if any.
  • Hindi: Like English, this language demands a very solid foundation at an early stage. You must focus on sentence and paragraph making. Regular practice will help you strengthen your hold on Hindi.
