Review on the difference between ICSE and CBSE

As I told you all in my earlier post theat I had been recently transfered to Delhi, I saw a big difference in the schools. Actually, till now I had been studying in the schools with ICSE patterns but ICSE pattern schools aren’t common in Delhi. Here all the reputed schools are in CBSE boards. There is a slight difference in the study pattern of both the boards.

On my experience based in both the type of schools, I am writing this post. Hope you like it.

There are two very different boards of education in India, and these are CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education).

These are some of the main highlights in the diffrence between ICSE and the CBSE boards-

Medium of Instruction:

CBSE approves both English and Hindi language as the medium of instructions, ICSE does not recommend Hindi. ICSE schools recommend strict actions if a fellow was found speaking in Hindi.

Curriculum/Course Content:

The syllabus prepared by CBSE is more suitable for qualifying in various entrance examinations, including the medical and engineering professional exams. The syllabus of ICSE is more detailed and requires the student to remember a lot. CBSE is comparatively easier than ICSE.According to me, a child gains nothing useful in ICSE as the child needs to study a lot for the assesment and in the next class or term, the sylabus entirely changes.

Assessments:

One more point of distinction between the two boards is the evaluation and assessment of students. In ICSE, internal assessments are vital and practical tests are aggregated with the overall scores. ICSE lays more emphasis on lab work. Also, a career in English Literature or Language is best suited for ICSE students.

Teaching Methodology:

With the changing times both the boards are aiming for active learning. CBSE and ICSE had prescribed a certain teaching approach and both have undergone significant change over the past 10 years. The focus has majorly increased on learning through experience and experimentation rather than through one-way teaching.

But then also we can find that working classes in CBSE are more qualified than that of ICSE. Most CBSE school provide smart classes,  more working activities etc.

As I told you earlier, that I had read in both the school types, I would prefer CBSE more that compared to ICSE.
