For Classes VI to VIII, three periodic exams and one Annual exam is held every year.

From the academic session 2011-12 onwards, as the students should not be held back or expelled till completion of elementary education as per current policy, the students who have obtained Grade E1 or E2 in one or more subjects during the orientation period will be given special training and allowed to improve their performance in Summative Assessment - II through subsequent ONE ATTEMPT.

As there is no declaration of ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ ,cadets failing to qualify for promotion once during the ‘Orientation Period’ (i.e. classes VI, VII and VIII) are condoned by permitting the cadet to repeat the class in which he fails to qualify for promotion.  If a student fails to qualify for promotion after the ‘Orientation Period', he should be withdrawn.
