RULES FOR EXAMINATIONS AND PROMOTION APPLICABLE FOR
CLASSES 1 TO 12
(Rev 02, 2017)
  1. Although the minimum attendance required to take the board examinations is 75% in Class 10 and 12, under normal conditions, our internal criteria is 90% attendance to take the Half Yearly or Annual examinations. It is in the interest of the child to do so.
  2. The minimum aggregate score for a child to be promoted to the next higher class is 40.0 %. The aggregate is computed taking into account 10% of Periodic Order Test – I, 30% of Half Yearly mark, 10% of PO – II and 50% of marks secured in the Annual examination. A child who has less than 40.0% in the aggregate will not be promoted even if he/she secures more than 40.0% in the Annual examination.
  3. The minimum score required to pass in every test and examination of the school is also 40.0%.
  4. To qualify for promotion to the next class, children up to Class 10 must not FAIL (score below) in more than ONE major subject out of English, 2nd language, History & Civics, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and 5th or 6th subjects. In other words, if a child scores less than 40.0 % in more than one subject, he or she will be detained in the same class even if he scores 40.0 % or more in aggregate.
  5. Even if a child has scored more than 40.0 % in aggregate but fails in more than one subject in Class 11, he or she will be detained. Parents must know that understanding the curriculum of Class 12 depends upon understanding the content of Class 11.
  6. A child who has failed in only one subject and has hence been promoted, will have to take a re-test in that particular subject, before start of the next session so that the child is better equipped to handle the academic demands of the next session in that subject.
  7. If a child is absent for PO-1, Half Yearly, PO-2, or Annual examination, even on medical grounds, he or she will not be awarded a rank and no retest will be conducted. However, based on the marks obtained in the remaining papers a ranking of the child will be indicated in the mark sheet to enable the child to ascertain his or her relative standing in the class. Such a child will not qualify for scholarships and awards.
  8. In case, the student is suffering from any illness or problem and he/she is unable to appear for the test or examination with the other students, the parents must write an application in advance pertaining to the same.
  9. If a child is absent due to sickness, a sick-leave application must be submitted by the parent to the school for the date/dates of absence from school. This needs to be followed up with a sick certificate from a respectable and widely accepted medical practitioner of not less the M. D. level at the time of resuming school, whether during examinations or otherwise. The child will be marked “Absent” and we will compute the overall marks without considering the papers in which he or she was absent. Depending on the intensity and frequency of occurrence of such incidents, the school reserves the right to take any other appropriate decision, on a case to case basis, including detention in the same class. The child will not be awarded any rank when he or she is absent even on medical grounds in PO 1, Half Yearly, PO 2 or Annual Examinations.
  10. If a child is found to be using or suspected to be using unfair or foul means or “cheating” in any form whatsoever, he or she will not be awarded any mark in that paper. The child may be debarred from taking other papers depending on the seriousness of the incident and number of occurrences of this nature. In all such cases, the child will not be awarded any rank.
  11. During examinations, 4 marks will be deducted for late arrival from the marks secured in that paper.
  12. Absence from the Republic Day or Independence Day function will attract a penalty of 2 marks in aggregate of Half Yearly or Annual Exam.
  13. Any absence from school should be supported by the leave letter from the parents either presently or immediately or return to school.
  14. The decision of the school shall be final in all the matters related to examinations and promotions. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHALL A REQUEST FOR PROMOTION BE ENTERTAINED WHEN A CHILD DOES NOT MEET THE ABOVE PROMOTION CRITERIA.
