The Academic Calendar is an essential
document for all students and teachers, it contains important academic
information regarding classes, events, assessments, due dates and start dates.
It’s a great resource to keep students on track.
ICON College has generated its academic calendar
for the convenience of the students. Academic calendar is important for the
completion of whole year curricular and co-curricular activities successfully.
It eases the students to stay proactive and achieve success in all events and
also prepare them for scheduling their practical life. Knowing and
planning for study sessions will set students up for academic success
rather than bringing on an all-nighter of writing papers or memorizing
academic calendar breakups of all
subjects and classes are also provided before starting the session. This
initiative of ICON COLLEGE helps
students to know when they are going to complete their syllabus and which topic
is delivered by teacher on a particular date. Keeping an accurate and
up-to-date calendar of due dates of important assignments, tests, projects and
class discussions reminds you of what you need to complete and when.

activities help in the holistic development of students and assist in
developing critical skills and abilities to be successful and happy in the 21st
Century life and workplaces. Therefore, the importance of co-curricular
activities is immense during school and college education.
In the 21st
Century, the world is changing fast. The conventional education curriculum,
which was developed in the early 20th Century, has to pave the way to a new
kind of education and learning. In the book 21st Century Skills: Learning for
Life in Our Times, the authors Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel have premised
that “the world has changed so fundamentally in the last few decades that the
roles of learning and education in day-to-day living have also changed
forever”. So, it’s our duty to prepare students for practical life. And ICON COLLEGE sets its academic calendar
by keeping in mind all the essentials of a student.
