Summative Assessment totals to 60% weightage.
There are nine grades in Part A of Scholastic assessment and Part B of the same assessment has five grades. Summative assessment covers non academic areas like attitudes and skills and there are three grades. If a student secures Grade 6 in the academic areas his/her marks would range from 51% to 60%. CCE advocates absolute grading. This means that Grade 9 would imply an A2 grade. The academic term will be divided into two terms.
