Exams and Test
Terminal Exams, Final Exams & Test Papers
There are normally three examinations. First Terminal, second Terminal and Final Examination in each academic year, (which is divided into three terms).
Very sick children or children suffering from an infectious disease should not be sent to school for exams.
A pupil who is absent for Unit Tests will not be retested. Absence from a subject excludes a student from being reckoned in the order of merit in the examination. Under no condition will written test/exam be taken orally.
THE ANSWER PAPERS OF THE FINAL EXAMS ARE NOT SHOWN. IF the need arises then the Principal and the administrator will probe the matter and their findings and decision will be final. Such matters should be brought up for consideration within a fortnight of the distribution of Report Cards and not later.
