LEARNING AT MCGS
We have a system of continuous assessment which indicates the progress constantly without putting any particular pressure of examination on a child.
Reports are sent to the parents four times in a year as our academic year is divided into four terms. These reports not only reflect the academic performance of a girl, but also her achievements in Games as well as co-curricular activities. These reports are written by the subject teachers, class teachers, House-Mistress, Games and Activity teachers.

Juniors: Assessment is in the form of Aural , oral and written quizzes, open book as well as prepared tests, show and tell and projects. There are no examinations in junior school.
