About The Event

In India, given a school education system that focuses heavily on academic scores, we may be failing to develop real world skills in our children. While we have successfully created efficient executors and managers, the future belongs to innovators who can envision new worlds and persevere to make it a reality. This requires development of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) like logical reasoning that go beyond rote memorization. It’s time we act to enable our children with these skills to make them future ready – With that aim we present, Assessment of Critical Thinking (ACT).


In ACT, similar to international standardized tests like the SAT, students’ problem solving skill and critical thinking ability are assessed and not their ability to remember. In a world where “Google” has been included as a verb in the dictionary, it’s not memory that matters, it is instead the ability to make sense of information and connect dots meaningfully that matters. ACT is designed to nurture that ability for students in classes 4-10 with a participation fee of INR 150/-


We look forward to you joining us enthusiastically in developing future-readiness of your children by encouraging them to participate in the ACT, 2015-16. You can also log on to or call us on 8655915726 for more details.
