ICSE Tuition Online
The curriculum set by the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), commonly known as the ICSE Board is essentially similar to other boards, the extent of topics covered, the learning goals targeted and the viable avenues for further study are the areas where the difference lies. The CISCE conducts board examinations after class 10 (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) which evaluate students for six subjects along with Socially Useful Productive Work, and Class 12 (Indian School Certificate) where a student must attempt three, four, or five electives and English (compulsory). It is also mandatory for class 12 students to be assessed for their Socially Useful Productive Work and Community Service by the school.
The CISCE also conducts the Certificate of Vocational Education Examination which is aligned with the recommendations of the Ministry of Human Resource Development with the intention of preparing students for various vocations. This exam can be taken up after two years of study after completing the class 10 examination. Only regular school students are allowed to take up these examinations. Private candidates are not permitted.
Edge over other curricula:
The ICSE board strikes a perfect balance between science and the arts by giving equal importance to all subjects which include Science, Mathematics, Language, Humanities, and Art. The major difference between ICSE and other boards is the application-based teaching methodology which stresses experimentation and real-life simulations to drive concepts for in-depth understanding rather than simply theoretical knowledge and rote learning. This builds analytical skills and inculcates critical thinking. The syllabus is aligned with the needs and work ethics of foreign universities.
The medium of instruction is English which gives the students an edge at cracking mandatory examinations like IELTS to pave the way to study in international universities. The syllabus is extensive, comprehensive, and diverse, which imparts detailed knowledge, ensuring clarity and understanding thus polishing skills like diligence, time management, and self-study in students. Language and literature skills are the focus of study which impart impeccable expression and fluency, eventually leading to building confidence and personality that exponentially increases employment prospects. ICSE students outperform most students from other boards in terms of general awareness, practical knowledge, computational skills, and English. Schools under the CISCE have the freedom to choose any textbook and this results in the selection of books that are regularly reviewed and updated.
A major challenge for parents in India, when deciding on a school for their children, is choosing the board of education offered by the institution. This decision plays a pivotal role in the career options available to the child at the college/university level and the personality the child develops. All the boards have their advantages. The Indian School Certificate (Class 12) is recognized and considered to be at par with the Higher School qualification of the University of Scotland according to the Universities and College Admission Services (UCAS) which is the National Admissions and Accreditation agency in the United Kingdom
Since this is a relatively tenacious curriculum, it is losing schools to boards offering easier content. This is making it challenging for ICSE/ISC students to find quality tuition and coaching classes locally.
