Syllabus & Exam Pattern
Competitive Examinations for Class 5
How to prepare 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:
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.
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.
Practising previous years' papers are important, as it helps you simulate the real exam. Make sure that
you practice a lot so that you’re able to memorise formulae and solve problems easily on the day
of the exam.
