Evaluation Policy

 

Evaluation at KG & Classes I – III Level

There is no Examination from Kindergarten till Class III. Rather the evaluation is based on a more detailed Continuous Evaluation Strategy aimed at de-stressing education and making learning joyful and meaningful experience. The report cards for Classes I to III will reflect Grades in subjects instead of marks or percentages. The five-point Grading System with no ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ system is as follows:

O 95% and above Outstanding
A Between 80% and 94% Excellent
B Between 60% and 79% Very Good
C Between 40% and 59% Good
D Below 40% Scope for Improvement
