These are interim and uniform tests for students
of Forms 1, 2 & 3 in the major subjects of English, Chinese/French
and Mathematics to be held twice a year in October and March.
The duration of these tests will usually last not more then
2 lessons and the purpose is to inform the parents of their
children's progress and to do something about the subject(s)
which is(are) unsatisfactory. The tests serve as a kind of
academic barometer before the 2 major examinations.

and tests should also be recorded in a special Assignment
Book kept by a specially assigned pupil for record purpose
and future reference.
