Get To Know the Difference between CBSE and IGCSE A common concern of parents in India is finding the right school for their child. Most parents are now familiar with education systems around the world and want to equip their children with the right skills and expertise to make a living in the future. Fortunately they have a wide array of options for school boards available like CBSE ICSE IGCSE and IB. The choice of the board parents choose for their children can make a significant impact on the knowledge the child gains. In the Indian education system ICSE and CBSE boards are governed by local authorities and are extremely popular. However IGCSE and IB boards governed by foreign bodies are also gaining popularity in big cities nowadays. Although CBSE and IGCSE are different boards the education provided in both these boards has helped Indian students to gain good quality elementary education.

The key differences between IGCSE and CBSE boards and their unique and salient features are elucidated in detail in this article. Key differentiators between IGCSE education and CBSE education  Subjects and Compulsory Subjects CBSE English is a compulsory subject and in the higher grades subjects are grouped as a combination and divided into 3 streams. IGCSE The course offers over 70 different subjects with no fixed combinations of subjects. English is the only medium of delivery and the compulsory aspect of each subject is to gain a global perspective and learn global research.  Focus and Approach CBSE The concepts are covered for the students to have a basic knowledge. The syllabus does not provide advanced knowledge on the subjects. It is designed to help students gain good scores and also aims at being fair to students with different levels of intelligence. IGCSE The course is very demanding and intensive as it requires students to submit an assessment about every topic covered all through the year.  Criteria for Assessment CBSE

The syllabus is application-based and has a certain weight assigned to assessments to be submitted by the students. But the primary mode of assessment is an examination wherein the students are assessed based on their ability to memorize recall and write the concepts. IGCSE Students are assessed based on assignments and practical application of the skills and knowledge gained.  Textbooks and Reference Books CBSE The schools have to follow a prescribed set of textbooks suggested by NCERT to facilitate learning on the subjects. IGCSE There are no prescribed textbooks and students are supposed to read from a wide variety of recommended books to be able to understand and learn more.  The Medium of Instruction CBSE As it is an Indian Board the accepted medium of instruction is English and Hindi. IGCSE It is an internationally recognized curriculum and therefore the medium of instruction is only English.  Examinations CBSE The most important exams are the All India Secondary School Examination taken in Class X and the All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination taken in Class XII. IGCSE Cambridge Primary and Cambridge Secondary 1 2 are the examinations conducted by the IGCSE school board. Suitability CBSE The syllabus is suited for the parents who have transferable jobs in India and for students who aspire to take the IIT-JEE exams NIT and AIIMS examinations. It is also suited for students who want to pursue a degree abroad as it emphasizes Mathematics and Science.

IGCSE It is best suited for students who migrate from abroad as the Cambridge curriculum is effective in Class 9 Class 10. It serves as a precursor for the International Baccalaureate Curriculum in Class 11 Class 12. Parents who tend to migrate globally could opt for this syllabus as their children will not have difficulty in adapting to the syllabus.
