CBSE & Affiliation
Geethaanjali is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) whose primary focus is:
- Innovations in teaching-learning methodologies by devising students friendly and students centered paradigms
- Reforms in examinations and evaluation practices
- Skill learning by adding job-oriented and job-linked inputs
- Regularly updating the pedagogical skills of the teachers and administrators by conducting in-service training programmes, workshops, etc.
For classes I to XII we follow the curriculum and syllabus prescribed by CBSE which is based on the National Curriculum Framework (2005) with the core rationale:
CBSE also mandates that students be evaluated on the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system up to class X. Students are assessed on a five point grading scale with no pass/fail up to class V and on a seven point grading scale for classes VI-VIII. CCE for classes IX and X comprises three parts based on formative and summative assessment, co-scholastic assessment and activity participation based assessment. At the senior secondary level CBSE conducts two exams at the end of classes X and XII to assess and recommend readiness for future endeavours.
