  5. As Non-Tamil Indian Languages (eg Punjabi) and Foreign Languages are conducted in MOE Language Centres, an overall grade will be given by the centre as the student’s final EOY result.

  6. Your daughter/ward is expected to be present during assembly on examination days and be punctual for all her assessment papers. She will be dismissed from school after her last paper of the day. She is not required to attend school if she has no examination for that day. Please help us to ensure that your daughter/ward revises her work consistently.

  7. After the EOY Examinations, the assessment papers will be returned to your daughter/ward. Please ensure that she keeps you informed of her performance by showing you the assessment papers.

  8. Should your daughter be absent on the day of the exam, she will need to provide a valid Medical Certificate (stating that she is unfit for exam). There will be no retaking of the exam papers.

  9. We need your help in ensuring that your daughter/ward attends school regularly. She will not be allowed to take her examinations if her attendance falls below 80% without valid reasons.

  10. Developing time management skills is an important part of life. We seek to help our students to become aware of how they use their time in the context of competing demands on their time.  A copy of Time Management tips and a blank daily time-table is attached for planning students’ revision schedule. Please ensure that your daughter/ward uses her time wisely as she prepares for the EOY Examinations.
