In the recent years, a large number of International Schools are mushrooming in India, mostly in metropolitan cities. Today, parents have a plethora of educational boards from which to choose. It is no longer just the SSC (Secondary School Certificate), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Local State Boards or ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education).

Today a large number of International Schools are also offering foreign boards like Cambridge International Examination (CIE) or International Baccalaureate (IB) and give its students an option to appear for either the Indian boards or the International ones.

Cambridge International Examination (CIE)


There has been a sudden rise in the number of schools today with a CIE affiliation, with most of them in Maharashtra, New Delhi and NCR, Hyderabad, Gujarat and Karnataka. Over 200 schools in India are Cambridge International Centres and Haryana has over 14 such schools. The entire list can be found here –

CIE or Senior Cambridge, as it is popularly known, was a precursor to ICSE and ISC examinations in India. Today, CIE is the world’s largest provider of international qualification for 14-19-year-olds. The qualifications include the Cambridge IGCSE and the International A/AS levels. CIE qualifications are taken in over 150 countries across the globe.

The best part is that Cambridge IGCSE is recognised by universities and employers worldwide. The demand for international certifications has been fuelled mainly by NRI and expat students. Many NRIs come to India looking for the same standard of education as they are used to in the West and CIE or IB meets their demands.

CIE adopts a flexible approach in each country of affiliation. For example, it introduced Sinhala in Sri Lanka and Pakistan Studies is a must requirement in Pakistan. For the Indian students, Cambridge has introduced Hindi.

CIE is recognised worldwide and many universities outside India grant credits and exemption of certain papers if the students have an international qualification.

The University of Cambridge is the oldest and the largest International Exam Board, conducting exams for 2.5 million students a year in 158 countries. The CIE programme is conducted as per the International syllabus, under the strict structure of the University of Cambridge, with examination papers sent and marked by the CIE.

CIE qualification are accepted and recognised by universities, education providers and employers across the globe.

CIE has developed and promoted qualification around the world for almost 150 years. As per the AIU (Association of Indian Universities), 5 (five) passes at IGCSE in Grade A, B, C and minimum 2 (two) passes at A level examination (XII) of the British examining bodies is equivalent to + 2 (HSC) stage qualification which is minimum eligibility requirement for admission to Bachelor degree programme at Indian universities.

International Baccalaureate System


IB is the abbreviation for International Baccalaureate. Schools recognised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation and offering the IB curriculum are known as IB World Schools.

Currently, there are 70 IB World Schools in India offering one or more of the three IB programmes. 19 schools offer the Primary Years Programme , 7 schools offer the Middle Years Programme and 66 schools offer the Diploma Programme. The first school was authorized in 1976. The complete list can be found here…

IB is an internationally-recognised school system made up of three educational programmes:

i. PYP: The Primary Years Programme (Kindergarten to Class 5).

ii. MYP: The Middle Years Programme (Class 6 to Class 10).

iii. DP: The Diploma Programme (Class 11 to Class 12).

What are the subjects in PYP?

Subjects in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) are:

1. Language

2. Social Studies

3. Mathematics

4. Science and Technology

5. Arts

6. Personal, Social and Physical education

What are the subjects in MYP?

Subjects in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) are:

1. 1st Language

2. 2nd Language

3. Humanities (History and Geography)

4. Sciences (Biology, Chemistry & Physics)

5. Mathematics (Number, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, and Discrete Mathematics)

6. Arts (Visual Arts and Performing Arts)

7. Physical Education

8. Technology (Computers)

What are the subjects in DP?

DP students choose one subject from each of the following six ‘Subject Groups’:

Group 1: First Language (English)

Group 2: Second Language (French, Hindi, etc).

Group 3: Individuals and Societies (History, Economics, Business and Management, etc).

Group 4: Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Environmental Systems).

Group 5: Mathematics and Computer Science.

Group 6: Electives (either Visual Arts or a second subject from Groups 3, 4 or 5).

In addition, all DP students must study a two-year course called Theory of Knowledge (TOK); work to produce an Extended Essay (EE); and engage in Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS).

What are TOK, EE and CAS?

Theory of Knowledge is an essay of 1,200-1,600 words written on a given title (from a choice of ten), followed by a ten-minute presentation of the essay by the DP student in class.

Extended Essay is an original independent research leading a DP student to produce a comprehensible written piece of 3,500-4,000 words in any chosen subject and title.

Under Creative, Action and Service, each DP student must complete at least 150 hours spread out over one-and-a-half years, engaging in some form of Creativity, participating in sport or other physical Action, and doing social Service.

Some Important Points

A CBSE student can join the IB Diploma Programme for 10+2 level qualifications instead of the Class 12 CBSE, ICSE or State Board exams.


The Association of Indian Universities (AIU) rates IB at par with Class 12 CBSE, ICSE, NIOS or State Boards. However there have been certain instances when IB students found it difficult to get admission in certain Indian colleges and universities.

Pursuing the IB programme can be very expensive, with annual fees as high as INR 5,00000.

Mahatma Gandhi International School, an IB World School based in Ahmedabad, is however an exception where slum children study together with other children.

Fees Structure in International Schools in India


Though I could not find latest details but according to 2004 statistics, GD Goenka states a six-figure fee. The school charges Rs 1.7 lakh annually, with an additional Rs 1.53 lakh at the time of admission.

The British school charges between Rs 3.14 lakh to Rs 3.59 lakh depending on which grade the student enrols in. Starex International, another International school, charges between Rs 1 lakh to 2 lakh depending on whether you have selected the CBSE or the Cambridge curriculum.

Pathways World School in Gurgaon bordering Delhi charges Rs.120,000 ($2,600) – with an additional Rs.120,000 for hostel accommodation – to Rs.230,000 ($5,000) per year. This is less than the Rs.670,000 ($14,500) charged by the American Embassy School and the British School, as of 2004.

The fee has increased many folds now in 2010.

Regulation of International Schools

In India, the ministry of human resource development is still deliberating over the idea of having a second thought about “regulating” international schools affiliated to foreign boards like Cambridge International Examination (CIE) or International Baccalaureate (IB). Please read the recent Economic Times article here..

Looking forward to your views on the same subject. Would you like to enroll your kid in an International school?

3.  Baldwin Boys High School Bangalore


About/Review: Baldwin Boys’ High School (informally BBHS) founded in 1880, is one of the oldest schools in Bangalore, India. The Baldwin Schools are named after their benefactor, a philanthropist, John Baldwin of Berea, Ohio, U.S.A., who had a vision, which saw him start six educational institutions, the last of which were the Baldwin Schools.

The name “Baldwin” descends from a royal lineage, and is of German origin. It means “Bold Winner”.

One sees a glorious panorama of personalities in the annals of Baldwins, guided by a strong sense of purpose, unity, loyalty, grit and determination.

The school has an enrollment of about 6,000 students.

Affiliation – It offers classes up to the 10th standard (grade) under the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) syllabus.

Academics: Here, General Science is bifurcated into Physics, Chemistry and Biology, also Humanities is divided into History and Geography, with question papers of 100 marks in each of the disciplines. The study of English is taken very seriously, and a good grounding in this language is aimed at. Regional languages are also a part of the scheme, as is also Mathematics, which plays a vital part in today’s world.

This scheme has a uniqueness about it, in the sense that it makes provision for a SIXTH SUBJECT – either Commercial Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Physical Education, Music, Accounts, etc. This prepares the children for College, and gives them a head-start over others, as the State Level Scheme does not provide for a sixth subject.

Baldwin Boys’ School offers the following disciplines as a Sixth Subject:

1.Commercial Studies


3.Physical Education

4.Computer Science



The school provides hostel facilities for a limited number of students. The junior and the senior dorm are housed in different buildings. With the increasing number of international students and students from the northeast of the country, the facilities have been upgraded.

  • About/Review: Pre-primary
    Alphabets and numbers are taught using phonetics and songs in a competitive environment, using interactive multimedia techniques. Children are taken on outings, which help them to understand concepts and to express themselves better.
  • Primary
    Teaching is tailored to the needs of the students by involving them in the learning process to maintain their interest. Some of these methods are as follows
  • Dramatisation
    Students are dressed up to enact various roles as per the demand of the lesson or chapter. The class that performs well is permitted to enact on stage while the other sections learn by watching them.
  • Role Play
    Students dress up to depict various characters according to the subject matter. For example, a student journalist interviews his colleagues dressed up as Maharashtrian farmers to explore their way of life and food habits.
  • Experimentation
    Experience is the best form of learning. A very practical approach is undertaken by conducting simple experiments which go a long way in imprinting never-to-be-forgotten concepts on young minds.
  • Projects
    Children are involved in the learning processs in a group or individual basis. They bring in various materials as needed and assemble them in class under the teacher’s guidance, with the aim to help them understand a concept.
  • Yoga
    Children begin their day with 10-15 minutes of yoga. Laughter therapy has also been used with positive results.
  • Home activity
    These are simple independent activities for children, which can be accomplished without any intervention by parents.

The results are encouraging, with children taking greater interest in their studies and therefore lower absenteeism. The children are more confident and their hidden talents are revealed. The burden of homework and exams is reduced to a large extent.

The International School Bangalore (TISB) is regarded as one of Bangalore’s top schools. The students largely come from affluent backgrounds, or non resident Indian families who wish to have their children schooled in India, because the fees are around US$16,000 a year (in addition to several ‘extra costs’ students are made to pay after joining the school) and there are no scholarships or financial aid available.

However, scholarships are planned to be available for the IB Diploma Program from the year starting August 2008 onwards. It is one of 37 in India that offers the International Baccalaureate Program in its Diploma form similar to Dhirubai Ambani school in Mumbai.

Most students who come to TISB are attracted by the plush lawns, the facilities, and the prospect of going to a top university after completing the IB Diploma Program

The students have a choice of studying Hindi or western languages such as French, Spanish, Mandarin or German. English is a compulsory subject in this school. The school also has an EFL department.

The school has been planning to expand its campus to include a 9-hole golf course since since the school’s inception in 2001. The school has also been proposing a tie up with Newcastle University for undergraduate studies for the last few years as well.

Admissions: The International School, Bangalore is online ( and communication by email is acceptable and easy. The school runs from August to June and admissions are normally completed between January and June for most classes.

There are entrance tests and interviews for entry into the middle and senior schools. Students should be of good academic ability and of good character. The school may ask for references, since living together at The International School is really as important as following its academic programmes.

Criticism: However, negative criticism exists of the school as it censors open talk about many unfavourable aspects and monitors the ongoings and online communication regarding the image and opinions of the school. Furthermore, the school is notorious for expelling students for minor reasons. Teachers at the school also feel confined by the strict regulations imposed on them. These include not being allowed to enter fellow staff members’ rooms and unnecessary bureaucracy and politics.
