ICSE (English) Orientation for students of class IX in Shikhar

The department of English conducted an orientation session for the students of class 9 on the 23rd of February. This endeavour was meticulously planned with the objective of making the students aware of the nuances of the pattern of assessment in the ICSE board examinations. It essentially commenced with an overview of the question paper, the mode of assessment and the general expectations from students. Clarity was given regarding the details of internal assessments and their significance in the whole scheme of testing. An in depth insight into each part of the question paper, the distribution of marks as well as the rubrics, was provided. Important skills like time-management, study skills etc, were discussed. This further facilitated a strong foundation for preparing the students to deal with any challenges that might confront them.
