Bishop Cotton School (BCS) Shimla, boys have been enjoying a return to normality this week by taking their end of year exams. Following the example of the CBSE and CISCE boards, BCS have only offered offline exams back at the mountain-top campus.
The heritage school is very pleased to have the children back in the classroom taking exams. BCS Director, Simon Weale said: “It helps the boys to get back into good habits and allows teachers to have a true indication of pupil progress during the pandemic”.
The feedback the boys get will enable them to work on any gaps in understanding over the holidays.
Teachers and students have all said how much easier the learning is in the classroom after many months of online lessons during the pandemic.
BCS is one of the oldest residential boys’ schools in Asia (founded 1859) and has played a key part in shaping the development of public schools and education in India as well as producing a host of well-known and successful alumni. The Slater Debates were started at BCS named after the first headmaster Dr Slater.
