IXth - XIIth
The curriculum provided by CBSE is based on National Curriculum Framework-2005 and seeks to provide opportunities for students to achieve excellence in learning (CBSE 2020-21). Senior Secondary students need to have a well-rounded, challenging learning environment at school so they can learn independently, develop resilience, confidence and maturity before stepping out into the world.
Senior School at AWS provides students with the opportunity to identify their areas of strength and pursue an academic programme that is best suited to their learning style, aptitude, and which is in alignment with their long term career goals. Our learning programme gives the learner a sound foundation in conceptual knowledge, ICT skills and skills of higher-order thinking required for the 21st century. Developing national identity and issues of gender, social, cultural and regional disparities are also covered in this curriculum.
English is a compulsory language paper along with the subjects mentioned in the course options above.
General Studies, Health & Physical Education will be part of their internal assessment.
Work experience is now subsumed in Health and Physical Education. We will be continuing with Arts and Value Education activities to be continued to provide holistic support to the student.
Assessment: The Assessment scheme will have a theory, internal assessment or practical components as per the syllabus given for each subject. The Board Examination will cover the entire syllabus of Class-XII as per syllabus for each subject. Grades shall be awarded based on a 9-point grading system in each scholastic subject. For Class XI the assessment scheme will be similar but slightly different to class XII Board examination and shall be carried out at school level(CBSE 2020-21).
Students of Classes XI-XII are evaluated based on class tests, assignments, projects, practicals and term exams in a given academic year. In addition to this, class XII will have a Pre Board Model Examination in February and Boards in March.
The future of our STD XII course option would include a variety of popular courses from humanities, Arts and Sciences. The emphasis and desirability of Science subjects especially leading to engineering and the medical field is still on the high and will remain so due to technological advancements. Soon enough we would be able to offer our students STEM courses such as Engineering Graphics, Biotechnology etc.
