Uniform system of Assessment/ Examination (VI-X)

CBSE has restored the Board examination for class X and revised the assessment structure and examination for class X This new scheme will bring the uniformity in the system of assessment and examination for classes IX and X, in all CBSE affiliated schools. To increase the confidence in the students to start preparing for class X board exams, when they join the upper primary stage in class VI, the CBSE has decided to implement the uniform system of assessment, examination pattern and issue of report cards for classes VI-VIII also on similar pattern. This is followed in virtue by the school.

The scheme for classes VI-VIII has been designed on term assessment basis with gradual increase in the learning assessment as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the whole syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X board exam and would thus ensure the quality of education.

With restoration of class X Board examination, the CBSE will issue the report card for class X based on the Board examination. As the assessment structure and examination pattern for class IX will be similar to that of class X, the report card for class IX issued by the school will be similar to that of class X.

The assessment structure and examination for classes VI to VIII comprises of two terms i.e. Term-1 and 2 as explained below:
