When it comes to a child’s education, there are two main points to consider – right school and right syllabus. Often a question arises in the mind of a parent – should I first decide the syllabus or the school? Although the choice of school is more important, deciding the syllabus also makes a huge difference in the learning process for a child. Each syllabus is unique in its approach and the parent has to decide which will best suit the child.
Two national syllabuses, The Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Indian Certificate for Secondary Education (ICSE) and the State syllabus (SSC) are the choices available in the Indian schools. And then there is the International Baccalaureate (IB) program which follows an international curriculum and preferred by students wanting to study abroad. Each of these boards follows a different way to test the students. The CBSE exams are application-based, ICSE exams are knowledge, understanding, application and skill-set based and the SSC exams are content-based.
The CBSE board prepares the syllabus for students from Lower Kindergarten to Class 12, for schools affiliated with it. The curriculum is set by National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). The board conducts India’s two nation-wide board examinations: the All India Secondary School Examination for Class 10 and the All India Senior School Certificate Examination for Class 12. The ICSE was established by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate. Previously called the Senior Cambridge, it was adopted for Indian requirements. The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) is the examination conducted by the Council for Class 10 and the Indian School Certificate (ISC) is the examination for Class 12.
Based on the above factors, decide which curriculum will suit your child. Then search for schools in Chennai that follow the curriculum in the best way.
