The academic year is drawing to a close, and everyone is starting to look for those long forgotten notes (well, maybe not everyone).

But this year has been an eventful one for the ninth graders. The CCE (Continuous And Comprehensive Evaluation) system was implemented last December, and students have been trying to juggle studies with projects, assignments and seminars given.

Sure, these may help us in the long run, but a last-minute assessment of a student's overall development seems far-fetched. Either way, we will know whether CCE has been a success or not only after the exams.
