Glenrich International School

Promotion Requirements and Supplementary Exam Policy

Dear Parents (Grades 5-8):

Greetings from Glenrich School Dhaka!

As we are fast approaching the end of the Final Term of the Academic Session 2022-2023, we would like to draw your attention to the promotion policy to the next grade at the Glenrich School Dhaka for the students of Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Please note that we will adhere to each, and every promotion criterion mentioned below, for the promotion of our students of Grades 5, 6, 7, and 8:

1. Each student must get a qualifying grade of at least a ‘D’ or above in all the subjects offered  during the Final Term Examination of the Academic Session in order to be promoted to the next  grade.

2. If a student fails to secure a minimum of Grade ‘D’ in any of the subject/s,  they will be given a chance to sit for the Supplementary Tests on those subjects. If the child does not get the qualifying grade in the Supplementary Test before the start of the new Academic Session, they will be held back in the same grade.

3. The student must have a minimum of 85% attendance and a 90% assignment submission rate  in the entire school year to be eligible for promotion to the next grade.

4. It is compulsory for all students to appear for the Final Term Examination of an Academic  Session. If a student is unable to appear for any one of the Final Term Examinations, they will  not be eligible for promotion to the next grade.

The aim of this Promotion Policy is to maintain the reputation of excellent academic standards  for which the Glenrich School Dhaka is known in Bangladesh; a high standard for which you  entrusted your child’s future to us. This policy will keep your child from letting up their focus,  and always striving for excellence in their studies.

Please read our Updated Supplementary Exam policy provided below. This will be effective from the Final Term Examinations (Session 2023-24)

Supplementary Exam Policy

Supplementary Exams will be conducted in the month of June (approximate date: June 16th) for the following reasons:

Ø  Missing a term Examination due to emergency situations.

Ø  Failing to achieve the minimum benchmark of 50 marks in a subject test.

To cover the costs associated with conducting additional examinations, the following fees will be charged:

Retest 1: BDT 1000 per subject

Retest 2: BDT 2000 per subject

Our aim is to ensure that all students pass in all their subjects. The fees for supplementary tests are allocated to cover the expenses involved in preparing additional test papers (often more than once) and grading them. This requires additional time and effort from teachers, in addition to their regular duties. Moreover, it aims to instil a sense of responsibility in students, encouraging them to take their subjects and examinations more seriously in the future.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
