PROMOTION POLICY AS PER CBSE GUIDELINES

 

A new Assessment policy has been implemented by CBSE. This new scheme will bring the uniformity in the system of assessment and examination for classes IX and X in all the CBSE affiliated schools.

To increase the confidence in the students to start preparing for class X Board examination the scheme for classes VI-VIII has been designed on Term Assessment  basis with gradual increase in the learning as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the whole syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X Board examination, and would thus, ensure the ‘quality of education’.

The promotion of student from one grade to another should be based on students’ ability, academic performance and attendance.

Class VI-VIII

 

As far as overall assessment of a student for the purpose of promotion to next class is concerned, the following points will be adhered to:

 

  1. Each student is required to get a qualifying grade ‘D’ or above in all the subjects in the Scholastic Area.
  2. If a student does not secure grade D in the annual examination, he shall be granted opportunity for improvement test within a period of two months from the date of declaration of the result of such annual examination. He will have to score qualifying grade D in all the subjects.
  3. Admission to class IX in a school shall be given to such a student who has passed class VIII examination with minimum grade ‘D’ in all scholastic subjects.
  4. If a student of grade VIII scores less than grade D in the improvement test, the school has to detain that child in eighth class.
  5. A student must have attended school with minimum 75% attendance to be eligible for promotion to the next higher grade.
