Exams and Average Score
There are two different exams administered at our school. The exams that all levels must take throughout the academic year are as follows:
- Midterm (Monthly) Exams that are administered 6 times in an academic year
- 4 Main Course Quizzes that are administered on the previously announced dates and 8 Pop Quizzes that are admistered without prior notice in an academic year
- 2 Presentations and English Portfolio Check (The portfolio comprises a collection of student works prepared throughout the year).
Besides these, an Oral Grade is given to students every semester based on their class participation, homework, regularly bringing the lesson materials into the classroom and doing the online activities (if any).
In order for our students to complete the preparation class successfully, their Year-end Achievement Score must be at least 60 or above. Year-end Achievement Score is calculated by adding the 60% of the Yearly Achievement Score to the 40% of the Final Exam Score.
Students whose yearly achievement score is 60 or above take the Final Exam in order to successfully complete the preparation program. Minimum passing score in this exam is 50. Students who cannot take this score from the exam are deemed unsuccessful even if their year-end achievement score adds up to 60 or more.
Objections to the Exam Results and Submitting a Health Report
Students have the right to object to the results of the exams conducted during the academic year in the case of any probable errors in fact. In such a situation, the students should submit a petition of objection to the Student Affairs Office within 7 days following the announcement of the exam results.
If the students fail to take the exam in the event of a health issue, they may have the right to take a make-up exam provided that they submit a health report. For the health report to be effective, it should be issued by an official healthcare institution and it should be submitted to the Student Affairs Office alongside a petition within 3 days following the exam date.
Make-up exams only substitute the Monthly Exams and the Final Exam. Quizzes and the Classroom Performance Grade (CPG) cannot be substituted with a make-up exam.
Date and venue of the make-up exams are announced in our school’s website at the end of each semester.
