Assessment & Promotion

1. Promotion at the end of the year will be based on overall conduct record, attendance, continuous assessment in every subject and on the work done during the year.

2. For students who are absent for any Assessment or Unit Test, no provision can be made for supplementary examination/test.

3. Attendance for internal assessments for classes IX & X is compulsory. No exceptions can be made in this regard.

4. Failure to appear at any assessment can seriously affect a student's academic progress and promotion.


  • Breach of any of the regulations of conduct at examinations, or indiscipline in or outside the hall, or the use of unfair means, even if discovered subsequently, will merit the cancellation of that particular paper and the student concerned will be awarded a zero. He will also be given a General Remark stating the facts of the incident.
  • A student who has made arrangements to obtain unfair help in connection with question papers from any person or any agency, is liable to have his result in the examination, cancelled as a whole. Candidates who are detected giving or obtaining, or attempting to give or obtain unfair assistance, or who are otherwise detected in any dishonesty whatsoever, will be debarred from the examination.
  • A student guilty of disorderly conduct or responsible for causing any kind of disturbance in or near the examination hall is liable to be refused admission to subsequent papers.
  • A student is not expected to have in his possession any book, memorandum, or pocket book, notes, or papers whatsoever during the examination.


6. A student who has missed a unit test / assessment due to sickness and a leave has been sanctioned against a written application on the day of examination with proper medical certificate, will be awarded 75% of the total marks secured in the assessment / unit test of the subject under consideration in the other term.

7. No consideration can be made if the candidate misses the assessments in both the terms.

8. There is no arrangement for “re-examination” or “promotion on trial”.

9. A student who fails to secure promotion may be asked to leave the school. In no case, however, will he be allowed to repeat the same class for a second time. A student, who fails twice, in three consecutive years, must be withdrawn.

10. The reports must be collected by the Parents on the stipulated day. A defaulter may be penalized through a fine/and may not be allowed to attend school, until his report is collected.

11. In all questions of promotion or failure, the Principal’s decision is final.


A) Apart from overall conduct, attendance and work done during the year, a student should pass in all subjects. He may be considered for promotion even if he fails in one of the subjects. Pass marks in Moral science, English and SUPW are mandatory for promotion to the higher class.

B) Evaluation System for the Junior School: Evaluation for the junior school will be done through the grading system. The work of the K.G. Students will be continuously assessed by the teachers. Classes 1 & 2 will be evaluated through continuous class performance, unit test and assessment. Classes 3, 4 & 5 will be evaluated through continuous classperformance, unit test, project work and assessment.
Grades : A+ = 96 - 100 (Outstanding); A= 90 - 95 (Excellent); B+ = 85 - 89 (Very Good); B = 80 - 84 (Good); C+ = 75 - 79 (Fair); C = 70 - 74 (Moderate); D = 60 - 69 (Satisfactory); E = 50 - 59 (Not Satisfactory); F = below 50 (Failed).

C) Evaluation System for the High School: (per term; per subject) 100 marks (80+10+10) from the Assessment, project work and Exercise copy evaluation (twice). 30 marks from the unit test. 20 marks from the class evaluation.Internal Assessment for Moral Science will be based on 'Conduct Record'. The final tabulation of 100 marks will comprise 30% from the 1st Assessment; 30% from the unit test and class evaluation combined; and 40% from the 2nd Assessment. A student must obtain 40% in this calculation
Grades: A+ = 96 - 100 (Outstanding); A = 90 - 95 (Excellent); B+ = 85 - 89 (Very Good); B = 80 - 84 (Good); C+ = 70 - 79 (Fair); C = 60 - 69 (Moderate); D = 50 - 59 (Satisfactory); E = 40 - 49 (Not Satisfactory); F = below 40 (Failed).


As a policy the school forbids all private tuitions as the pupil should be able to progress in his work as a result of good teaching.

Private tuitions are not to be taken by DBL teachers since that would interfere with the proper execution of their school duties, including the preparation of lessons at home and the correction of exercises.


The school has three major holidays and these are indicated in the school calendar.

These holidays may not be extended or anticipated. Unauthorized leaves on the last days before vacation, and delays in returning to school, will invite a penalty as decided by the Principal.
