Welcome to Gozo Minor Seminary

CONTINUOUS (FORMATIVE) EVALUATING SYSTEM FOR OUR STUDENTS

 

Forms 1, 2, 3 and 4

1. General notes

1.1.Evaluation is done during the scholastic year. Thus we have:-

1.1.1. Two (2) evaluations during the scholastic year (one in November and the second one in April).

1.1.2. A Half-Yearly Exam (in February-March); and

1.1.3. An Annual Exam (in June).

1.2. For each evaluation, the marks of each subject are out of 100 and are based on homeworks, classwork, orals, projects, presentations and tests given in class.

1.3. Teachers should inform the students and the headmaster about the way they distribute the marks of every evaluation.

1.4. The global mark is based on these two evaluations, on the half-yearly exam and the annual exam, so that a student may be promoted from one form to another.

1.5. The global mark for each subject is out of 100 marks.

1.6. The total of the global mark for each subject is thus formed:

1.6.1. Every evaluation forms 5%: 2x5% = 10% 

1.6.2. The half-yearly exam = 30%

1.6.3. The annual exam = 60%

1.7. If a student is caught copying, he loses the marks of the evaluation or of the exam. Moreover the student will not be allowed to continue the exam and is sent home. In this case, instead of the subject’s mark, the word ‘caught copying’ is written.

 

2. Procedures in case of sickness

2.1. Every case of sickness during an evaluation or exams should be authenticated by means of a medical certificate.

2.2. The evaluations.

2.2.1. If a student is sick when he is supposed to do a test, the teacher may base the evaluation mark on the homeworks, classwork, orals, projects and presentations given.

2.2.2. In case one of the evaluations cannot be done because of long term sickness, the percentage of the evaluation must be added to the percentage of the other evaluation.

 

2.3. The exams.

2.3.1. The half-yearly and annual exams.

2.3.1.1. If a student gets sick during any part (oral, listening, written, practical) of the half-yearly exam, he loses the allocated marks to that particular section.

 

3. The Result

3.1 If the average global mark is over 85%, the result is marked as Distinction

3.2 If the average global mark is between 65-84%, the result is marked as Merit

3.3 If the average global mark is between 50-64%, the result is marked as Pass 

3.4 If the average global mark is under 50%, the result is marked as Studied

 

4. Revision of Papers

4.1 Revision of paper is permitted only in those subjects where the student did not achieve a pass mark.

4.2 Parents are allowed to review the exam paper in the presence of the subject teacher and their child.

4.3 The school administration reserves the right to review any exam paper at their own discretion.
