There are two key versions of the Indian curriculum, both of which are becoming increasingly recognised and accepted outside India: the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and the CISCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations). At GEMS, we offer both pathways.
The CBSE curriculum is designed and developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training, New Delhi. It prepares students for the All India CBSE Secondary Schools Examination at age 16 (end of Grade 10) and the All India Senior School Certificate Examination at age 18 (end of Grade 12).
The CISCE curriculum prepares students for the ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) examination in Grade 10 and the ISC (Indian School Certificate) examination in the final year of secondary school in Grade 12.
At our Indian curriculum schools in India and overseas, students benefit from a highly supportive system that encourages them to strive to reach their full potential. Both Indian curricula offered at our schools give students of all abilities and aptitudes the chance to achieve their very best in a broad range of subjects. These include:
- Business studies
- Information technology
- Indian languages
- Maths, English and the sciences
- The arts
