## Academics

## Overview

Education and educationists at Dar-e-Arqam are not confined to the four walls of the school. Education is formally and systematically provided with a broad view of the curriculum but it does not end there. In our opinion, it is a continuous process and goes on from the cradle to the grave. Life and its experiences teach us several important facts. Thus we may conclude that the education imparted in formal schools is only a part of the whole and the process is influenced by the religious, social, and traditional background of the society. Therefore, care of this background is a shared responsibility between home and school. Working with parents, families, and the community is considered an essential element of teaching at Dar-e-Arqam.

The development and maintenance of Islamic culture and civilization are basic objectives as the creation of Pakistan was the result of our desire to develop all walks of life according to the Islamic values of liberty, equality, and fraternity. So we believe that education should set forth to equip our students with a moral force and a sense of justice, learning process should enable them to think correctly and behave properly, it should inculcate the spirit of serving the helpless and the downtrodden. Knowledge should be considered as the pursuit for truth and a desire to struggle for the noble causes in the fields of science, Arts, Social justice, and welfare. Therefore, Dar-e-Arqam aims to prepare our youth for their material well-being, but without mad competition and keeping in mind that this world is a transitory phase, a test, and a preparation for the life hereafter.

The curriculum is seen as the whole teaching-learning activity both inside and outside the classroom.

## Examinations

All assessments are carried out in a relaxed and informal manner. There are no formal end of term tests.

Formal mid-year examination is held at the end of the first term and an annual examination at the conclusion of the final term. In addition to the examination results, the term marks reflect a student’s all round progress, including performance in course-work assignments, projects and tests.

Examinations are modeled on the Divisional Board pattern giving due consideration to the academic attainment targets of the classes concerned. Trial examinations are held in preparation for the final examination after course coverage.

The unified examinations ensure uniformity in syllabus coverage as well as the marking process. These examinations enhance the school’s philosophy of continually working towards academic excellence. Each campus has developed its own examination cell to ensure sanctity of the examination process.
