They also help students select subjects for the O Levels and meet with students and parents individually or in groups. A formal orientation meeting was arranged before the end of grade VIII to give an introduction to new subjects, and teachers discussed CAIE exams and criteria for senior school. Our senior students, along with the teachers, are available there to assist and explain their subject.
Admission Test for Senior School:
For Senior School admissions, students will need to undergo proficiency tests in English, Urdu, and Mathematics. However, students arriving from foreign countries with limited proficiency in spoken or written Urdu may be exempted from the Urdu test. Nevertheless, if the child is a Pakistani citizen, they will still be expected to take the Urdu test. Consequently, it is essential for parents to inform the school about their child’s Urdu language skills.
As for O’Level admissions, students will initially need to complete proficiency assessments in English, Urdu, and Mathematics. Successful completion of these tests will lead to an invitation for elective subject assessments the following week. The specific elective tests will vary based on the subjects selected by the student, such as Sciences, Additional Mathematics, or Art.

At LGS we have established a comprehensive testing policy for Grades I- IV to ensure fair and consistent evaluation of student performance. This policy encompasses all aspects of assessments, including formative and summative assessments, quizzes, projects and research assignments, classwork, homework, and class participation.
Formative assessments are a fundamental component of our educational approach, allowing us to gauge student learning and development in real-time. These ongoing assessments occur throughout the learning process and provide valuable feedback to both educators and students. They are not solely focused on assigning grades but are integral to guiding the learning journey.
Regular quizzes are administered to assess students’ understanding of specific topics covered in class. These quizzes are announced in advance, providing students with ample preparation time.
Periodic projects and research assignments are assigned to encourage students to apply the concepts they have learned in class. These assessments are graded based on the quality of research, presentation, and the depth of understanding demonstrated.
Regular classwork and homework assignments are given to reinforce classroom learning. These assignments are graded and contribute to the overall grade of each student. Assignment submissions have to be timely and late or missed assignments are given a zero.
We evaluate class participation based on students’ engagement in various classroom activities, including discussions, group work, and presentations.
Summative assessments, in contrast, are designed to evaluate the overall performance of students at the conclusion of the academic year. These assessments serve as a culmination of the learning journey and provide a comprehensive evaluation of students’ knowledge and skills.
The key summative assessments include:
Mid-Year Test ( MYT)
Mid-Year Exam (MYE)
End of Year Test ( EYT)
End of Year Exam (EYE)
These assessments not only measure individual student performance but also help us assess the effectiveness of our entire educational process. They play a vital role in determining the level of mastery of concepts taught in class and assist in identifying areas that may require further attention within our curriculum.
Our assessment policy is carefully designed to support and enhance the learning experience, ensuring that each student has the opportunity to thrive academically. We are committed to academic excellence and providing a fair and supportive evaluation system that helps students achieve their full potential.
