That represents about 60% of the eligible students. This is truly a great achievement because these children scored in the top 15% among the Asset taking students across India.

EI Asset Performance

MashaAllah, Al Qamar students did us proud in the latest round of the EI Asset examinations yet again.

  • Three of the five grades which took the examination are in or exceed the averages in the top 10 schools nationally.

  • Grades 5,6,7 scored above the national average & the South region average

  • All grades scored above the Tamil Nadu average.

In terms of individual performace, an astonishing 73% of our middle school students rank in the 84th or above percentiles. Several are in the 90+percentile zone in one or more subjects.

This is all despite, nay because, of the special Al Qamar approach - no exams (except Asset) no homework, stress on reading for pleasure, conversations, discussions, workshops, excursions, lectures, hand-on learning, questioning, debating, negotiating. Kids learn to become independent drivers of their own learning. Without stress or strife, they absorb facts, think critically, express articulately. All these skills pay off when the kids are confronted with an exam like Asset!

Asset is a large scale diagnostic exam which measures conceptual learning. It is conducted twice a year in 300 schools across India, Middle Easst and Singapore. 2 Lakh students take the exam annually.

Congratulations to our winners:
