Are foreign boards in schools really relevant?

posted on: September 28, 2022

A Lot of schools in India have started accepting the curriculum of foreign boards leaving behind the traditional methods of CBSE. International Baccalaureate (IB) and the UK’s Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) have lately become very popular in India. Despite the high tuition fees that these schools charge, the demand has been growing aggressively. Between the time period of 2018 and 2021, the number of students in IB schools increased by about 24 percent. Currently, in India, we have 204 IB World Schools and 338 authorized programs. The majority of parents who enroll their students in these foreign boards said that this is the path toward a bright future for their children. By making their children study in schools that are affiliated with foreign boards they are ensuring that their children are accepted into prestigious international universities in the future. Around 50% of the students studying in the schools end up in international universities in some foreign countries. The rest of the students get a seat in some of the premier private institutions of India like Ashoka University and OP Jindal University. Foreign boards make sure that their students go through an overall development during their school period. They focus on aspects like critical thinking, leadership, personality building, and research which CBSE lacks.
