The ICSE and ISC Curriculum
Sanskriti The Gurukul is affiliated to the council for Indian School Certificate Examination for ICSE ( Study Centre X ) and ISC ( Study Centre XII ) Examination. The COUNCIL for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) was established in 1958 by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate. The Council conducts two examinations in India: the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and the Indian School Certificate (ISC). The ICSE board follows the spiral curriculum approach. First, the basic facts of a subject are learned, and then more details are introduced. The basics are re-emphasized many times over to help get them into long-term memory. ‘What the student studies this year is built on top of what was learned the previous year. The ICSE exams are knowledge, understanding, application and skill-set based. Under the ICSE board, projects are an integral part of the curriculum, which helps develop analytical skills in a student. The ICSE board offers its students strong concepts since the syllabus encourages students to address a topic in detail and research it thoroughly. The students have a very good grounding for mathematics in the ICSE syllabus.
