Additionally:



  • First year sixth form students and those in higher secondary will be evaluated on the basis of their assessment so far & possibly assignments which may be given in due course. This also applies to MCAST students, but if this involved practical sessions, these would be held in September. 


  • A recently-established task force comprising stakeholders from private, church & State schools is expected to come up with recommendations on how to cover educational content which students missed out due to the premature closure of schools. This is being done to ease the load on teachers and students in the next scholastic year.

Students may call 25981000 to ask any questions.
