The annual academic award is made up of 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. Six 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, Academic Awards are calculated on 75% of the External AS Exam aggregate plus 25% of the
August Trial 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.
