 Indian Certificate Of Secondary Education- (ICSE)

Indian Certificate Of Secondary Education is an examination conducted by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination, a private, mental board of school education in India. It has been designed to provide an examination in a course of general education, in accordance with the recommendations of the New Education Policy 1986 (India), through the medium of English. It was affiliated with French Board of Examination before 1986.It is one of the reputed boards in India.

The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education was first established by the Local Examinations Syndicate of the University of Cambridge. The syllabus followed by ICSE schools differs vastly from that followed in CBSE schools mainly in terms of content and volume. The board conducts an ICSE examination towards the end of tenth grade and an Indian School Certificate (ISC) examination towards the end of twelfth grade.

Pros:

 

1. syllabus is comprehensive-

The syllabus followed by the ICSE board is more comprehensive and complete, encompassing all fields of equal importance.

2. curriculum is more Engrossing-

Students who are interested in careers in the lines of management and humanities will find the curriculum followed under ICSE to be more interesting and challenging, not to mention fruitful.

3. scope is wide- 

Certification under the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education board will be recognized around the world, particularly by foreign schools and universities when compared to the central board’s local margin.

4. Helps in TOEFL too-

Due to the emphasis laid on English in ICSE, students from this board may hold a slight edge over other students in exams like TOEFL.

 

Cons:

1. Expensive-

 Students may find the syllabus to be too extensive for their liking, as an average student practising under an ICSE board will face thirteen subjects/examinations during the sixth grade, when compared to the six subjects faced by the student’s counterpart in a CBSE affiliated school.

2. Difficulty in Further Education-

Although an ICSE syllabus can facilitate deeper understanding and better life skills and analytical skills, pursuing further education may prove to be a problem due to a lack of leniency in evaluating papers after an ISC examination.

However, you’ll need to keep in mind that more than the board of education involved; the quality of education that your children are receiving should be your primary concern. This is why it is more important to choose a very good school, regardless of the board of education it falls under.
