Priyanka, There is a big group of homeschooling families in Mumbai. As i said in my previous reply contact Swashikshan or become a member of India Group for Homeschoolers & Alternative Education group in FB. Most homeschooling kids (who want certificates / Marksheets) go for NIOS or IGCSE exams after which they can go for their 11th and 12th exams in mainstream school or junior colleges. Btw last year a homeschooled kid, Malvika from Mumbai got accepted in Massachusetts Institute of Technology -MIT (though IIT rejected her) without any highschool credentials because of her passion for programming skills. She is a three time medal winner in International Olympiad of Informatics.
