Scheme of Examination

The CBSE has initiated a scheme of Examination Reforms for holistic evaluation of learners through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation, (CCE) programme.

This is a process to provide holistic profile of a learner through regular assessment of Scholastic and Co-scholastic domains of development. It stresses upon the all-round development of personality of the learners. it diagnoses the learning gaps among the students as they come from different socio-economic back grounds and have different I.Q and E.Q. Through this system the learners difficulties are diagnosed and remedial measures are taken to help them to attain the target skills. It also discourages rot learning and the outcome of evaluation is not reflected in numerical marks, but grades.

Continuous and Comprehensive evaluation for primary classes

for classes 1, 2,3, 4 & 5

(i) There is no formal examination for classes I & II. The teacher will evaluate the students through continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE). The testing can be done simultaneously while teaching or separately.
