School Curriculum

The School is affiliated to the C B S E Delhi and thus, in the matters of Admission, Examination, Scheme of Studies, Attendance and other relevant matters the School ensures very strict adherence to C B S E Curriculum, Bye Laws, and Guidelines. Under Subjects of Studies, till X, the School offers three languages, viz, English, Hindi and Sanskrit (till VIII). The learning areas also include Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Work Education, Art Education and Physical Education. The School has made Moral Science a compulsory subject for all to instill in students moral values and to develop National Identity.

At Higher Secondary Level the School offers English Core, Hindi Core, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Accountancy, Business Studies, Economics, Computer Science (C++), General Studies, Work Experience and Physical and Health Education. These subjects are offered in groups and, presently the Institution offers the following Groups:

General Studies, Work Experience & Physical and Health Education are compulsory for all despite the choice of their group. At the time of registration for admission to Class XI, the students can show their choice of groups in the order of preference. However, the groups will be allotted purely on the basis of MERIT, ie the Grade obtained in the AISSE. Under normal condition, all who have been students of Royal Oxford in X Class and have secured a passing grade (above 'E') are eligible to be admitted to XI Class. However, if the Principal feels, admitting a student could be detrimental to the Institution and the fellow students his/her admission will be summarily rejected. The School has around 80 seats under Science Stream and about 45 under Commerce. Normally, everyone interested in getting admission manages to get a seat but, the possibility of getting the group of their preference depends on their performance in X. The changes brought in by the C B S E, from time to time, in Curriculum and other related matters are/will be implemented with immediate effect.

Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation

CCE System

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation is a system of school based evaluation of a student that covers all aspects of a student development. It is both continuous and comprehensive. It is continuous in the sense that it lays stress on regularity of assessment, frequency of unit testing, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures, retesting and feedback of evidence to teachers and students for their self evaluation. Comprehensive means that it covers both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of the students' development and growth. Since, the very introduction of the system, the School follows it in word and spirit with the time to time changes being brought in by the C B S E.

Scholastic Assessment is both Formative and Summative

Formative Assessment:

It is a tool used by the teacher to continuously monitor student progress in a non- threatening, supportive environment. It is used to get a feed back into the teaching and learning process. The School uses Unit Test(Examination), Assignments, Quizzes and Competitions, Projects, Debates, Elocution, Group Discussions, Club Activities, Experiments and Research as techniques of assessment under Formative Assessment. (The teacher is also allowed to invent techniques suitable to the situation.)

It is not compulsory that all these techniques must be used for a Formative Assessment. Normally, a Formative Assessment consists of four activities and each activity is evaluated out of 10 and then the marks scored for all the four are added together and the total is found out of 40 and accordingly grade is awarded. To be specific, for Classes I to VIII, every Formative Assessment consists of a Unit Test and any other three techniques given above selected as per the discretion of the teacher. Classes IX and X have only three Formative Assessments, which involves a Unit Test and any three other activities selected from among the list given above at the discretion of the teacher and, the fourth Formative Assessment is replaced by the Problem Solving Assessment (P S A) introduced by the C B S E, which is normally conducted in the month of January, every year. The academic year is divided into two Semesters and each Semester will have two Formative Assessments. Wherever possible, the assessment is done in the spirit of CCE even in Classes XI and XII.

Summative Assessment:

It is generally taken at the end of a Semester to find out the "sum" of what they have learned or what they have not learned. It is a pen and paper exam and is generally taken between September 15 and September30 (Summative Assessment I) and March1 and March 25(Summative Assessment II). Summative Assessment or Semester Examination is compulsory for all students. It is important to note that the students of X Class are allowed to choose between Home Based Second Summative Assessment (SCHEME I) and Board Conducted Second Summative Assessment (SCHEME II). At the time of registration the preference must be intimated and fee must be paid accordingly. Formative Assessments, P S A, Assessment of Speaking and Listening for Languages and Co-Scholastic Assessment conducted in the school are compulsory even for those opt for Board Conducted Second Summative Assessment.

Co-Scholastic Assessment: The desirable behavior related to learner's life skills, attitudes, interests, values, co-curricular activities and physical health are the skills to be acquired in co-scholastic domain. Therefore, Life Skills, Work Education, Visual and Performing Arts and Co-Curricular Activities are also assessed as part of CCE.

Examinations & Unit Tests

Process of Examinations

Examinations and unit test are compulsory for all students. The details of examinations and unit tests for Classes I to X are already given under CCE.

The students of Class XI, under normal condition, will have two examinations, one at the end of each semester, normally in September (First Semester Exam) and in March (Second Semester Exam). The first semester will have only one unit test but, the second semester will have two.

XII Class students will have three full fledged examinations and two unit tests in an academic year. Both the unit tests will be conducted in the first semester. The examinations are First Semester Examination, conducted in September at the end of first semester, Second Semester, conducted in December, and the Pre-Board, in January.

For all examinations we follow C B S E Curriculum and Pattern of Questions.

Students who are absent from examination for any reason will not be re-examined .If a pupil is not able to appear for whole examination for valid reasons his/her case will be considered on the strength of the year's record. In case a student is found using unfair means in an examination, he/she will be awarded zero for that paper and will be debarred from appearing for the rest of the examinations. Repetition of the same offence will result in dismissal.
