Currently, students have many choices in terms of which curriculum to follow. As the number of options increases, the confusion also doubles. It can be a very confusing and tedious process to decide which curriculum is best for your child. The choice of curriculum depends on a number of reasons: what ambitions you and your child have – If you want to send your child to college; If you have a job that requires you to relocate – within India or around the world; If your child has more diverse interests such as art and music rather than simple basics; And, of course, the accessibility factor. Below are some highlights of each curriculum.
CBSE (Central Council of Secondary Education)
CBSE is the most popular board that has been around for a long time. Most schools follow the CBSE curriculum. They mostly follow the standardized NCERT program, and the curriculum content is usually consistent with the entrance exams of most colleges. This is mostly very useful for students who are constantly moving because CBSE has a standardized curriculum. It also allows private students to appear for the exam. Having said that, some students do not prefer this because he takes a more theoretical approach to research. More attention is paid to mathematics and science. Students must choose a stream after completing tenth grade.
2. ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education)
The ICSE board follows the textbooks of their choice and does not follow the NCERT template. This does not allow a private or non-affiliated candidate to appear for the exams. They focus equally on language, art and science. The ICSE board offers a wide selection of subjects, and students have more choices. This structure is liked by students who want to gain more applied knowledge. However, this board is lacking as practical training is not as broad as IB or IGCSE. They have a large number of subjects, and the curriculum is rigorous and extensive
3. IB (International Bachelor)
IB is popular all over the world and has 3 sections. The first section is a program of elementary classes, which ranges from KG to 5th, the second section is a program for high school Std. 6 to 10 and diploma year program for Std. 11 and 12. IB has no prescribed textbooks and adheres to freedom of instruction. More attention is paid to practical knowledge, analytical skills, the arts and the humanities. Usually a source of admiration for parents who want to send their wards abroad to study or move around the world. It is one of the new structure of education in India that does not match the local structure of entrance exams prevalent in India. It is more expensive than CBSE or ISCE.
4. IGCSE (International Certificate of Secondary Education)
This follows from the international curriculum for 9th and 10th grades and is usually the basis of the IB program in many international schools for 11th and 12th grades. Students can choose from a variety of available subjects. Assessment includes both written and oral assessment of subjects. Usually a source of admiration for parents who want to send their wards abroad to study or move around the world. Like IB, IGCSE is also an expensive and challenging program where it is very difficult to find private tutors who can help students
