In the ICSE syllabus examinations, there is a balance between objective and subjective questions, both have equal priority or weight. One important distinguishing feature in ICSE syllabus is the importance given to projects. Projects are very important and they form the basis of marking scheme in the performance of the student. This makes the student extremely active and it improves his thinking ability.

There is 20% weightage for internal assessment in group I and II and 50% weightage for group III.

In subjects where there are more than one paper (e.g., Science), the marks obtained in the subject are calculated by taking the average of all the papers in the subject. Candidates appearing for the examination have to study six subjects, with one to three papers in each subject. For subject HC&G the paper 1 consists of History & Civics and paper 2 consists of Geography. Science consists of three papers each for Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This makes for a total of eight to eleven papers, depending on the subjects. SSC results are taken from best five of six subjects (out of which English marks is compulsory).

ICSE does not allow a candidate who has not been studying in an ICSE affiliated school to appear for the exams.

The State Syllabus (Karnataka) is available from Class 8th (VIII Std) to Class 10th (X Std). State Syllabus is conducted by a board, Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board. It was developed in the year 1966 and after the recognition the board has been working to increase the education ratio in the state.

The submission of the papers, admit card releases, result announcements, text books series, the syllabus recognition and all the works for the school education are arranged by the board of Karnataka in the state.

Medium of instruction followed is English for the schools affiliated under the state board.

The state syllabus is dependent on the government of that particular State. For each state, a separate education board would be available. The syllabus would then be decided by them as per the normal standards. The state syllabus gives more importance to practical implication of related subjects. For each state, the individual state board established by its government takes care of the designing and monitoring of the standards of education and examination in that state. The study syllabus for schools in that state is decided by this board and the mode of instruction here, unlike CBSE where in it is only English or Hindi, can be English or the Regional language of the state. Also, while CBSE prefers to offer education in a scientific and national exposure, almost all state boards focus more concepts of local importance. the policies and programs setup by State boards relate to only the schools registered with them in that particular state. Each state board works according to a syllabus designed and categorized by the ‘Department of Education’ of the state government which may or may not change in the next academic year. In case a student needs to change his/her residence from one state to another, he might face some major challenges in shifting from one style and mode of education to another because the two states would follow different curriculums


Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board came in to existence in the year 1966, has been conducting SSLC and other examinations. Every year the student strength is increasing tremendously.

Every year in April about 8.50 Lakhs & in June 1.50 Lakhs students are appearing for the SSLC examinations.

The board is now providing Admission Tickets with student photographs and major breakthrough in this venture is the photos being used in the repeaters Admission Tickets also.

The board has ventured to conduct the supplementary examination for the failed candidates of the examination of March in June month of every year itself; this will enable the students who would be successful in the June examination to join higher education courses in the same academic year from July itself. This process was introduced first time in the country.

Every paper is evaluated for 100 marks except first language opted as regional language which will be evaluated for 125 marks.

Use in competitive examinations

State syllabus helps in scoring competitive percentage, which in turn will add as a benefit to the results and eligibility criteria of competitive exams like CET, JEE, BITSAT, VITEEE, NEET, GRE, TOEFL, GMAT and the list will continue.


India is home to multiple boards of education such as CBSE, CICSE and State Board. This diversity has caused a great deal of difficulty and confusion among both students and parents. The anxiety is further compounded when students start seeking admissions in universities for their undergraduate education as the quota for each board varies from state to state and university to university.

International recognition: Indian students in general do very well in USA, UK etc. as the curriculum in these countries are less demanding when compared with Indian board’s education system.

Undergraduate admissions: For engineering, students have to write various entrance exams to gain admissions in universities across India. For few other courses, there are no entrance exams and admissions are based on 12th board results. The admissions requirements and quota varies from state to state. Some states give more importance to students from state board systems.

In the long run: Plenty of state board students do phenomenally well in their professional lives. At the end of the day, your abilities and work ethic plays a larger role in life than the board you studied in.
