The school academic year is from April to March, and is divided into two terms, as per the pattern prevalent in all English medium public schools in the country. Examinations may not be the true test of a child's ability, but regular classroom tests and periodic assessment at the school level are indicative of scholastic achievement. The results enable the teachers as well as students to reassess their orientation and take corrective measures, if required, to accord due attention to subjects and topics in which the child may need additional assistance.
Apart from the unit tests, results of which are intimated to parents, terminal examinations are organized twice each year. The half-yearly examinations take place in September/October while the final examinations are conducted in March every year.
