Students studying in pre-school till class VIII in schools affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) will have to study a curriculum prescribed by the Board right from academic session 2017-18
Till now, the Board prescribed syllabus only for classes IX to XII. Most schools followed NCERT syllabus for junior classes till VIII. The curriculum prepared by the Board will be released at the 59th annual conference of Association of Schools for the Indian School Certificate (ASISC) beginning in Lucknow from November 23.
“Earlier, we were preparing curriculum only for class IX till XII. But now with us having our own syllabus right from pre-school will ultimately help students to prepare for ICSE examinations in a better way. Now, students will be capable of working towards the board examinations much before.
The revised syllabi for ISC (class XII) and ICSE (class X) will be applicable for students taking the exam in 2018. The changes in the ICSE 2018 syllabus are in the subjects of history and civics, geography, mathematics and physics.
