* To qualify in a subject under scholastic academic subjects, a candidate must obtain a minimum of Grade D.
* Those candidates who obtain Grade E in any of the scholastic academic subjects in the formative tests shall have to improve their performance through a maximum of five subsequent attempts in order to qualify in the subject(s).

GRADING UNDER CO-SCHOLASTIC:
Under Co-Scholastic the students will be assessed by all the subject teachers of a particular class using the tools and techniques given in the formats scoring in Grade Points (on five point scale) and then converting the Grade Points into Grades.  Along with the Grades qualitative descriptors/descriptive indicators will also be recorded y the Class Teacher in the reporting sheet.

IMPROVEMENT OF GRADES:
Overall performance of the candidate is based on the achievement in both Scholastic as well as Co-Scholastic Subjects as follows:
Grades under Scholastic Areas can be improved in one or two subjects as per the total Grade Points scored under Co-Scholastic Areas and Activities in the following manner:
     •    If a student has scored between 65 and 100 (assuming the total maximum marks in Co-Scholastic are 100) Grades in two subjects
          under Scholastic Academic are to be improved in the Summative Tests.
     •    If a student has scored between 33 and 64, Grade in one subject under Scholastic Academic is to be improved.
     •    If a student has scored less than 33 then on improvement of Grades is possible.
     •    No Grade in the subjects of Scholastic Academic can be improved twice.
     •    The improved Grade has to be sown with an asterisk.  The asterisk should be explained below by stating “Grade improved because
          of  Co-Scholastic performance.Improvement of Grades is to be done in each Semester.  All assessment has to be school-based.
