Science Practical Examinations will be held as per the schedule given below. 01.10.2015 – Grade 9 , 05.10.2015 and 6.10.2015 – Grade 10.


  1. As instructed by the CBSE, to which the school is affiliated, there are two terms, from April to September and October to March. This has been introduced from the academic year, 2009-2010.
  2. The school follows the CCE or Comprehensive and Continuous Evaluation, for classes I to X.
  3. For Classes XI and XII, there will be two Unit tests and three Terminal Examinations. The Class XII students will take the All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (AISSCE), at the end of class XII, an examination that is conducted by the CBSE.
  4. No formal examination is conducted for classes I to IV. Classes V to X have a summative assessment in the form of a pen and paper examination at the end of each term.
  5. CCE was introduced by the CBSE after many years of deliberations and recommendations by different National Committees instituted to look into developing a curriculum for the holistic development of the learner group.
  6. Assessment, therefore, is a continuous process. The student is assessed not only in scholastic areas but also in co-scholastic areas such as Life Skills (Thinking, Emotional and Social Skills), Attitudes and Values, Literary, Aesthetic and Scientific Activities and Physical and Health Education. Given the nature and scope of what is to be assessed as far as the student is concerned, which involves all the components of a child, scholastic and co-scholastic, assessment can thus be termed as comprehensive.
  7. Detailed information on the CCE, its aims and objectives, and the manuals is available on the CCE Homepage of the CBSE’s website. You may click on the following links to further read on the subject. All these may be downloaded and saved for further reference.
