Marks are awarded out of 100 for all subjects. The Council encourages a system of continuous assessment by the school and, therefore, all the subjects have an internal assessment component of 20% marks in the form of project work, while the final written examination accounts for 80% marks. With respect to the optional subject chosen from Group III, it is divided into a Theory paper and a Practical component, with each being assessed to the extent of 50% marks through internal evaluation and 50% marks by way of external evaluation / final written examination. The standard reached in 'Socially Useful Productive Work' (internally assessed) will be given grades A, B, C, D or E; A being the highest and E the lowest. A, B, C or D indicates a 'Pass' and E a 'Fail'.
