Assessment and Evaluation
Examinations are an integral part of the educational process. Evaluation is continuous and reveals the strengths and weaknesses of the learners frequently so that learners have better opportunity to understand and improve themselves. Our examination system and promotion rules are consistent with the concept of evaluation developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and the policy envisaged by the Central Board of Secondary Education. The details about the system are as follows:
The Programme of Evaluation in various curricular areas is as under,
- Objective-based - aiming at the specific objective of the scheme of studies.
- Comprehensive - providing for coverage of all the objectives.
- Continuous - ensuring that there is no loss of time in getting the feed back about the progress of students
- Dynamic - being completely integrated with teaching.

The academic year is divided into two terms – April to September and October to March. The assessment will be done in scholastic and co-scholastic aspects.
