Test and Examination

Weighted assessments and examinations are integral in helping the school assess a student’s academic ability. The standard of each assessment is calibrated to challenge and ensure that students attain an expected standard for each subject area. A student’s overall academic performance is determined based on a set of planned weighted assessments throughout the year, as well as the Mid-Year and End-of-Year Examinations. To obtain a true reflection of a student’s academic performance, every student needs to uphold moral integrity.

Our strict examination procedures are adopted from the guidelines given by the MOE Cambridge G.C.E O-level Examinations. Any attempt to cheat, forge documents or make alterations will be taken seriously, with the necessary consequences meted out.

Weighted Assessments/ Mid-Year and End-of-Year Examinations

  • A medical certificate must cover absence from weighted assessments and examinations. (Only medical certificates from doctors registered with the Singapore Medical Council will be accepted). In the event that absence from weighted assessments and examinations is not validated by a medical certificate, a zero mark will be assigned.
  • In the event that a student is unwell and has a medical certificate to validate her absence, it is not advisable for her to attend school just to take a weighted assessment/examination on that day. She is expected to rest as recommended by her physician.
  • Students are to report for morning flag-raising assembly (by 7.25 am) every examination day in full uniform.
  • Books, files, bags, handphones, trackers and other electronic devices etc, are to be left outside the examination room.
  • All stationery items are to be placed in a clear plastic case.
  • Students are to keep silent once they enter the examination room.
  • Students will sit in rows according to the class register number or exam index number.
  • Mistakes should be cancelled neatly and the desired answer is to be written above the cancellation. No correction tape or correction fluid should be used.
