The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) announced that it will revise the Class 11 syllabus to bring uniformity between ISC and CBSE syllabi. The schools have expressed concerns about a possible dilution that would make it less challenging. CISCE recently said the two syllabi vary slightly in terms of chapter sequence and the board intends to make them standardised. CISCE chief executive and secretary Gerry Arathoon said the board will rephrase the Class 11 question paper with competitive exams in mind as many students believe CBSE students are better equipped to handle entrance physics, chemistry, maths and biology exams.
"Many students from the ICSE board shift to the state board after completing Class 10 simply to get more marks. This lowered the emphasis on quality and that should not happen with a revised syllabus for ISC," she said. There are 65 ICSE schools in Tamil Nadu and 26 of them offer ISC (Classes 11 and 12).
Good Earth School principal Meena Rajan said changes are fine as long as they help students. "Most of our students are happy with the existing syllabus," she said. "We don't want to compromise with the standard of education in any manner and we have communicated this to the board."
