Examination Detail:

– Paper will include questions of all 3 disciplines of Science together.

– The exam will be divided into 2 components:

(i) Component 1: Pen and Paper Test to assess Criteria A & D- 60 min

(ii) Component 2: On-Screen Examination to assess Criteria B & C- 60 min

Note: Extra time will be provided only if any technical issues arise during the online assessment.

  •  Questions will be asked based on the Criteria of individual unit assessed during Summative Assessments. Eg: If a Unit-X has catered to learning objective A- strand (i), (ii) and objective B-strand (i) only, then the questions from this unit will only be asked in Criteria A and B.
  • Fully charged Chromebook will be required along with personal stationery and wired earphones. In case your Chromebook is given for repair, bring a receipt for the same.
  • All the resources shared on Curricle(subject resource sheet and google presentation), Google Classroom as well as the worksheets provided(online or in hard copy) will be considered as a part of the syllabus and will be sufficient to prepare for the examination.
  • Paper will include MCQ-type questions, short and long responses.

Important points for Assessment in Science:

The assessment will cater to all four criteria of Science and will include questions based on individual criterion:

  • Criterion A is Knowing and Understanding where teachers try to evaluate scientific knowledge from all the units covered.
  • Criterion B is Inquiring and Designing which is based on designing a scientific investigation to solve a specific problem given.
  • Criterion C is Processing and Evaluating which caters to interpreting and giving a solution to the problem.
  • Criterion D is Reflecting on the Impact of Science where students will be assessed on how well do they connect scientific knowledge gained with its real-life applications.
