Examination & Assessment Policy
(2020 – 2021)

Assessment is an integral part of teaching– learning process. At BGS Vijnatham School, assessment is conducted to create positive feedback and improve student’s performance. The examination system aims at bridging the gap between student’s current learning and age appropriate standard. We believe that continuous evaluation (Informed and uninformed) followed by regular feedback to learners, helps active learning. Parent-Educator interactions are held on a regular basis to share regular feedback and plan future growth of students.
