1. Are there any special features for SSLC Students?
Yes, we have Model Examinations. In order to help students get accustomed to sitting in SSLC exams, our students are give a number of ‘Model Exams’. This system is also called ‘Breakthrough’. It not only gives a very good indication of the type of questions that may be expected but also helps in the very important matter of "spacing out" examination time; so that all questions are attempted. The objective is for students to pass the examination with as high a percentage as possible by concentrating on what will matter in the examination hall.
2. What is the Assessment & Evaluation pattern followed?
The system of evaluation adopted by ISF is a continuous periodical assessments by way of weekly tests (Oral, written and assignments) culminating in a monthly test and report sent to the parents for their appraisal. Parent - Teacher meetings are held every month facilitating the parents to check and discuss the "monthly performance chart" of their ward. Parents are advised to make use of this opportunity and monitor the progress of their child.
'Student Dossier' a complete report-file of the student will be available with the class teacher.
ISF has introduced continues Evaluation for KG, Grade 1&2. Only grade shall be furnished in the report card and failure and pass will not be recorded.
This system of continuous evaluation is a clear shift of emphasis from evaluating the learner's performance in examination to holistic assessment of the learner's overall achievements.
This is aimed to reduce examination stress and anxiety experienced by the students. Grades are awarded for extracurricular activities and also for the students’ personal behaviour and attitude.
ISF holds three terminal examinations: First Term, Second Term and Final Examination. Terminal examinations will be held according to the set time table.
Request for holding the exams separately will not be entertained. Grade 10 & 12 public examinations are generally held in the month of March/April under the supervision of invigilators from the Secondary / Higher Secondary Board of Examination Kerala, India.
INDIAN SCHOOL FUJAIRAH is an examination centre for both S.S.L.C. and H.S.E. Exams.
