ICSE CBSE or IB ? How to choose the right board for your child?

Swapna Nair, Education and Career Counsellor


Aug 22, 2017 | 5 : 00 PM to 6 : 00 PM

Most parents even before thinking about which school to put their child to are seeking answers on which board – ICSE CBSE or IB for their child. Every board has its own pros and cons and depending on what suits you and your child’s needs you can choose the board.



But do you really know which board is good for your child?



Consider this: You have a transferable job and the place you are going has limited number of schools with equally less number of options. Hence it is important to keep all these things in mind before deciding on which board is good for your child.



So it is important to choose the right board from the start.



That does not mean that you can’t change the boards in higher classes but it simply means that if you have one board throughout it will help your child to perform better in whatever board you chose for him in the first place.

Icse will make the base strong. it is more detailed. But Ib is very child centred and child friendly.it depends on what you want in the future. if you plan to make him study abroad then IB is suitable. 2017-08-22 17:01:56

Since you are in transferable job, CBSe is a better option. CBSE has an international curriculum for international Indian students called cbse-i. 2017-08-22 17:04:08

Yet another option is IGCSE or IB. They are more expensive but Cambridge curriculum which can be found in almost all countries. 2017-08-22 17:07:03

Studying SSc is good if you are going to be in that region. Also there is the fact of learning Marathi. marathi will not be available when you go overseas. 2017-08-22 17:07:03

CBSE is viable if you intend her to study in India and focus o nMATh, Science. If you feel that she needs to focus more on LAnguage and Humanities, and want a very detailed curriculum then ICSE is good. If you plan for international study then IGCSE or IB will be good 2017-08-22 17:11:04

My husband is in the Army and currently posted in Gujarat. I wanted my daughter to study in a convent school but the convent school follows the state board, wherein the standard of English is not quite up to the mark. Should I opt for CBSE board school which would be Kendriya Vidhyalaya. Please help.

Yes, please. Being in the Army KV is the best choice 2017-08-22 17:11:48
message user image
Ok but I am not much convinced about KV's education system either as it has some major subjects being taught in Hindi 2017-08-22 17:12:45
message user image
In that case how can I make my daughter comfortable in the class when she studies SST, and Science in Hindi 2017-08-22 17:13:29

Swapna Nair
Yes it is an issue unless you choose to stay away from your husband. If you choose KV yo uwill have to strengthen her Hindi. 2017-08-22 17:16:26

The disadvantage of state board is she will have to study the local language 2017-08-22 17:16:47

Swapna Nair
You will have to spend time in giving her additional help 2017-08-22 17:17:08

Swapna Nair
When you get transferred to places having other CBSE schools you could admit her then. Army children have quota every where. And such fine students have merged from KV schools. She will get lot of exposure with regard to extra curricular activities 2017-08-22 17:19:12

CBSE is a good option. For Indian students, cbse has the CBSE-i (international) curriculum. many DUbai schools have this curriculum too 2017-08-22 17:20:23

Swapna Nair
Yet another option is IGCSE or IB schools. They are in plenty there. When you move back to India, if you choose to stay in the popular cities then these schools are available 2017-08-22 17:21:19

CBSE students can adapt easily to IGCSE unlike vice versa 2017-08-22 17:22:14

IB was established in 1968 in Geneva, Switzerland. It started as an NGO under the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO. IB began as an organization that originally served international mobile children. The aim was to provide education which can be transferred to any part of the world and create a network where children and families who were mobile felt a sense of belonging. IB schools aim to create 21st century learning experiences in which students can build connections between their studies and the world outside their classrooms. 2017-08-22 17:28:47

Ithelps in developing creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving skills and could prove beneficial to those aspiring to go abroad for higher studies 2017-08-22 17:29:15

OK so it is not for students staying at one place and joining one school till 10th 2017-08-22 17:29:38

Swapna Nair
It depends. If the child is aiming to study medicine or engg here then CBSE is the preferred choice 2017-08-22 17:30:18

OK and when should a child go for ICSE board 2017-08-22 17:30:48

Swapna Nair
You can study IGCSE or IB from KG to 12th. it aims a diff approach- creativity, exploration and research method. More suitbale forthose aiming abroad. The exams are not mark oriented 2017-08-22 17:31:06

ICSE is best ifthe child is interested in LAnguages and Humanities 2017-08-22 17:31:23

Not for the Indian curriculum right. Ok and why so I mean ICSE best only for that? 2017-08-22 17:31:58

Swapna Nair
Upto 8th ICSE can be experiemnted. The curriculum is very in depth. But if the child is aiming to do entrance exams for proffessional course then CBSE is the best option. 2017-08-22 17:32:08

Hmmm ok thanks Mam 2017-08-22 17:32:27

Swapna Nair
Because the professional exams like JEE and NEEt are designed by NCERT based on cbse curriculum 2017-08-22 17:32:35

Swapna Nair
And the scoring system will vary. Other boards lose out to cbse students. Getting full marks in ICSE boards is very tough 2017-08-22 17:33:26

So it depends on the interests of the child. 2017-08-22 17:34:09

ICSE gives a lot of emphasis on Language skills. If she is weak then she may struggle unless you give her additional help or tutoring. CBSE curriculum would be easier though. 2017-08-22 17:23:36

she is not week at all she is just not interested as she scores good marks in science and maths which are in english too 2017-08-22 17:24:27

Swapna Nair
Then ICSE is not for her. If her strengths are MAth and Science, CBSE is a better option. 2017-08-22 17:25:08

I want her to be a little soaked in langauage English so that it becomes part and parcel of her studies and she shouldnt struggle in her future days 2017-08-22 17:25:08
message user image
ok. 2017-08-22 17:25:32

Swapna Nair
If she isthinking of a career in Language or humanities then ICSE is ok. If not it is a struggle. 2017-08-22 17:25:40

Swapna Nair
You could inculcate book reading, sharing stories, and talk in english for her to be soaked i nit 2017-08-22 17:26:05

hmmm I dont think so she is looking for a career in language and humanities 2017-08-22 17:26:10

Take her for english movies, english plays, read books together. 2017-08-22 17:26:31

she would rather be interested in being an engineer.. 2017-08-22 17:26:43

Swapna Nair
Ok then CBSe is best because the entrance exams are also designed based o ncbse curriculum 2017-08-22 17:27:24

ICSE would become burdensome. 2017-08-22 17:27:32
