ICSE Class 9
The ICSE (Indian Council of Secondary Education) Programme puts a lot of focus on actual application of concepts learnt, and building analytical skills of the student. The syllabus is vast and focuses on each chapter in depth. Class 9 serves as a preparatory year for the ICSE Board exams conducted in Class 10, and so building a good foundation by understanding and practising all the concepts is necessary.
Recently, CISCE has standardized the final exams for standard 9. For many subjects including English, Maths, Science, the final question paper will be set by the council. Paper correction, will be done by teachers of the same school.
