Grading

Grading at Nixor College adheres to the CIE marking guidelines – both in terms of syllabus content as well as the letter grade allocated to each student based on overall performance.  AS results for each subject form the parameters around which letter grades are allotted to each student. Teachers mark the assignments and assign a percentage to the student.  The students of each teacher are then ranked, percentage-wise, and assigned a letter grade e.g. A*, A, B, C in line with the previous year’s Nixor College AS results for the subject.

A comprehensive summary of the students’ on-campus activities is reported to parents at the end of each semester. This assessment report consists of the semester transcript, academic performance  matrix and an extra-curricular activity report. The purpose of this detailed report is to inform parents of the student’s activities on campus and draw their attention to the students’ data contained in the school’s records. This data is fed into the university application process and generates the content for the recommendation that Nixor writes for the student.
