looking to understand how to go about choosing board for admission of my son in nursery ! does it make a difference at this point of time. ICSE or CBSE or IB . Any feedback on new age schools in gurgaon as Shriram millenum.education Corner
Oh I understand your concern. Let me give you some more pointers on this. CBSE - it is aligned to the central board. It is good if you are in a transferable job. It focuses largely on science and math. Medical and engineering entrance exams are easy to take because it is aligned to cbse. Of course the method of teaching would vary depending on the quality of teachers and school. ICSE - a student can sail through till grade 8. It is very application oriented and children enjoy till grade 8. After that it focuses on board exam curriculum and goes very deep. So the learning load doubles. ICSE gives importance to humanities. IGCSE And IB. IGCSE is easier from the boardexam point of you. A student will be eligible to study engineering or medicine in India. You would need extra coaching to prepare for the entrance exams. IGCSE And IB are very child centres curriculum. IB gets tougher in 11th and 12th. A child would enjoy both these curriculum because the pressure faced in other curriculum will not be there. Learning will be activity based or project based. These schools are also more expensive in those fee structure. Also it would pave the way to studying abroad too. Hence you could choose a school as per your vision , your views on safety , activities , finance and other factors. It would good to choose a few schools; visit the campus; interact with the parents and students before making a final decision. All the best All the best and do keep us posted.
