Making the Grade
Students face the challenges of competitive examinations. So we offer talent and Olympiad examinations. These come under value additions that develop students’ skills. We have looked into creative thinking, judgement, assessment, logic, and reasoning, application of knowledge, analytical and problem-solving skills. These are the things that are taught during CCE activities.

Cambridge Young Learners English Tests are produced by Cambridge ESOL, which is part of the world-famousUniversityofCambridgein the U.K.These tests build confidence and lay a firm foundation for the students’ future studies.
International Assessment for Indian Schools (IAIS) is a leading international student Assessment service that provides an objective, in-depth, external assessment of student skills in key learning areas- English, Science and Mathematics besides Computer Science. Macmillan Publishers India Ltd. and EAA have partnered to bring out a structured and reliable international module for the educational assessment of students.
The students of the school also write The NSTSE tests during September every year.NSTSE is a diagnostic test which actually helps students improve. Unlike regular tests which try only to find out how much a child knows (or has memorized), NSTSE measures how well a student has understood concepts and gives detailed feedback on the same, to help them improve.
Thus NSTSE helps each student know whether he/she has actually understood a concept early on so that immediate action can be taken. Often students have conceptual gaps which increase as they progress and when they reach the higher classes, they develop a “phobia” for the subject.
The focus on fundamentals is so important that when the child finishes studies he/she will have to face the competitive world armed with these fundamentals. Even while opting for higher studies, the student has to go through a complete scan of what he/she knows and how much. Exams like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, AFMC, AIIMS, GRE, GMAT, CAT, etc., are so designed to test the fundamental strength of the student. Hence the need of the hour is building the fundamentals base as strong as possible.
