Summer School*: A summer course that may last up to six-week is offered during the summer holiday. Students who are academically below the required standard can attend this course and often make up for academic gaps.
Extra Lessons*: A student found to be weak in one subject attends extra periods in that subject until the level of the class is reached.
Intensive Classes: Students are given accelerated programs intended to prepare them to join the regular classes. In many cases, Intensive Classes students would finish the essential work of two scholastic years in one.
