Curriculum

Home // Academic Zone // Curriculum


Curriculum This Institution follows the curriculum designed and developed by the NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training). We prepare our learners for the All India Secondary School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) conducted by the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education for class XII). Students must excel in all aspects of life and not just in Academics. Accordingly, we follow a broadbased holistic curriculum designed to ensure the all round spiritual, intellectual, emotional cultural, social and physical development of the child. We believe in a healthy blend of Scholastic and Co-Scholastic activities conducive to a joyful learning environment.

The formal curriculum includes work experience programmes like Computer Applications, Socially Useful Productive Work etc. Physical and Health Education Programmes and adequate facilities for various games and sports.

Medium Of Instruction

The medium of instruction is English, Hindi/Sanskrit taught as compulsory language up to class X, Sanskrit is prescribed as the third language for classes VI to VIII

Scholastic Areasn

Classes I to VIII: NCERT syllabi followed with new interactive textbooks.
Classes IX to XII: NCERT textbooks and CBSE syllabi are followed.
The school offers Science (Medical and Non-Medical) as well as Commerce streams at the +2 stage.

Co-Scholastic Activities

So as to foster a healthy spirit of competition amongst students, the school organises inter-house competitions at the school level and takes part in various inter-school competitions organised by the State Directorate of Education at the Zonal Level, such as, Sports, Elocution, Debate, Declamation, Essay-Writing and cultural competitions. The school also participates in various events and activities by the CBSE at the inter-school level. Non-formal activities include ‘Arunima’, the Annual School Magazine, Annual Sports Day, educational tours and excursions, adventure camps, Scouts & Guides Training Camps as well as the NIE and PACE Programmes.

Assessment and Evaluation

During every academic year, the total outcome of the Progress made by the students is evaluated through regular and continuous assessment comprising of unit tests, term ending test and the annual examination. For Promotion, the student must secure at least 33% marks in every subject and 40% marks in the aggregate.

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation

title

The school follows the CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) system of evaluation for Classes I to X as laid down by the CBSE. Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation refers to a system of school based evaluation of students that covers all aspects of development. The scheme is thus a curricular initiative, attempting to shift emphasis from testing to holistic learning. It aims at creating good citizens possessing sound health, appropriate skills and desirable qualities, apart from academic excellence.

The student shall be assessed in both scholastic and co-scholastic areas. This is believed to help reduce the pressure on the child during/before examinations as the student will have to sit for multiple tests throughout the year, of which no test or the syllabus covered will be repeated at the end of the year, whatsoever. Grades are awarded to students based on work experience skills, dexterity, innovation, steadiness, teamwork, public speaking, behavior, etc. to evaluate and present an overall measure of the student's ability. This helps the students who are not good in academics to show their talent in other fields such as arts, humanities, sports, music, athletics, etc.

Unlike CBSE's old pattern of only one test at the end of the academic year, the CCE conducts several. There are two different types of tests. Namely, the formative and the summative.

Formative tests will comprise the student's work at class and home, the student's performance in oral tests and quizzes and the quality of the projects or assignments submitted by the child. Formative tests will be conducted four times in an academic session, and they will carry a 40% weightage for the aggregate. In some schools, an additional written test is conducted instead of multiple oral tests. However, at least one oral test is conducted.

The summative assessment is a three-hour long written test conducted twice a year. The first summative or Summative Assessment 1 (SA-1) will be conducted after the first two formatives are completed. The second (SA-2) will be conducted after the next two formatives. Each summative will carry a 30% weightage and both together will carry a 60% weightage for the aggregate. The summative assessment will be conducted in the school. However, the question papers will be partially prepared by the CBSE and evaluation of the answer sheets is also strictly monitored by the CBSE. Once completed, the syllabus of one summative will not be repeated in the next. A student will have to concentrate on totally new topics for the next summative.

At the end of the year, the CBSE processes the result by adding the formative score to the summative score, i.e. 40% + 60% = 100%. Depending upon the percentage obtained, the board will deduce the CGPA and thereby deduce the grade obtained.
