The School year has three terms : March to May, July to October, November to February.

Those absent from an examination without a grave cause will be considered as having failed in the particular subject; in case of illness a doctor’s certificate should be produced.
  • Those who absent themselves in any subject shall be considered failed in that subject and shall not be awarded any position, and shall not be re-examined. In case of grave illness, a medical certificate to the effect shall be produced.
  • Regular periodical class-tests will be conducted in addition to the term examinations. Marks obtained in all the tests and term examinations will be taken into consideration for promotion.
  • A pupil shall be eligible to appear in the Final Examination only if he/she has a minimum of 75% of the total attendance. The same may be applicable also for the term examinations.
  • If anyone is found indulging in any malpractice during an examination he/she is liable to be debarred from further examinations.

  • Those who seek admission in this school will have to accept this scheme of promotion. The decision of the school in the matter of promotion is final and irrevocable.
