The annual academic award is made up two sets of marks, viz the November Exam Marks and the Promotion Marks. Boys need to achieve the required average aggregate in both of these. 6 subjects are used in all Grades for the aggregate: In Grade 8 & 9 it is the 6 Core Subjects, and in Grade 10 & 11, it is English, your First Additional Language, Mathematics and your next best three subjects, excluding LO.
For the AS Level candidates, the Academic Awards are calculated on 75% AS Level Final Exam aggregate plus 25% August Trial Exam aggregate.
To achieve Honours, the average aggregate of marks should be 80% or above.
To achieve Colours, the average aggregate of marks should be 75% or above.
To achieve Merit, the average aggregate of marks should be 70% or above.

ACADEMIC ASSEMBLY 28 JANUARY 2020
Today we celebrate the exceptional achievements of our top academics of 2019. There are only two events during the school year when we acknowledge the boys who have excelled academically during the course of the year: this Academic Assembly and Speech Day.
It is an opportunity for all of us to see what academic excellence looks like, and to be inspired by these young men who have worked hard to achieve remarkable academic results.
I would like to re-iterate a couple of points that I make every year, and I would like you all to listen carefully and take them to heart, even if you have heard me saying them before:
I would like to make it clear, though, that if we feel that you are not coping academically or keeping up with your work due to missing too much school, then it would be irresponsible of us to allow you to continue to miss classes. The ball is in your court.
