ICSE SYLLABUS

The University of Cambridge’s Local Examinations Syndicate is responsible for the establishment of the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education. The ICSE schools follow a syllabus which varies tremendously from the schools following other syllabi, chiefly in terms of the volume and content. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) conducts an ICSE exam at the end of class 10. The syllabus is the one main factor affecting your results. Hence, following and studying the topics mentioned in it is essential to score high in the board exam.

Some of The Advantages of ICSE Syllabus:

  1. The ICSE board follows a syllabus that is more extensive and complete, incorporating all topics as well as giving equal importance.
  2. Students interested in choosing a career in the field of management or that in humanities will find the syllabus followed by ICSE to be more exciting and challenging, along with being extremely fruitful.
  3. The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education board provides the certificate that is recognised throughout the world.
  4. Students from this board are a step ahead of the students from other boards in exams like Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) due to the importance given to the subject of English in ICSE.
