Grading System

Grading System of Al Hayat was developed with the aim of providing individual attention to each student. Through the grading system, we can observe, the progressive or the rearward movement of the individual student in each of the subjects, and necessary steps can be taken.
Grading is not only for the academics but also for the behavioural aspect of the students. Behaviour in the class, with their classmates, teachers etc. is assessed and points are allotted. Similarly, the neatness of work, work area, book as well as the student’s attire will also be assessed. Through this way, we hope to encourage students and inculcate in them that education is not merely dealing with the academics but also behaviour as well as other co-curricular activities in the school.
The subjects taught are divided into three groups:

  1. Main Subjects
  2. Subsidiary (Non-main) Subjects
  3. Elective Subjects

Grading is done only for the main subjects. Al Hayat names its grading system, ‘Continuous Assessment’.
