I am returning to India with 10 years and 7 year old and they wll be enrolled in
to 3 rd and 6 th grrade ?
What is the best curriculum for then to enroll ?
or IGCSE ?
People who studied IGCSE or IB, would they be allowed to write nationwide entrance exams to enroll in to medial or engineering or Management ?
I want to make sure transition easy and at the same time have opportuinity to get in to one of those top schools ..
Also, does IGCSE goes to 10 th grade, what about +2 options ?
Does CBSE run to +2 or just 10th grade., please provide me with details ..
Also, is it easy for students finising IGCSE to geting in to private professional colleges, medicine/engineering/management
I am in same situation as you are . We will be returning back to india with 10 yr and 6 yr old. I have been seeing various posts on similar topics regarding schools for NRI kids.I believe the challenge with be more for these kids in 2nd laguages like Hindi etc ! At least that what i feel my situation would be. I would prefer ICSE or ICGSE if its more liberal in this matter.
I am looking forward for other parents to chime in with more information.
The problem chosing IGCSE is, it's not aligned with competitive exams of India ... that's a big draw back ..
As per ICSE, from what I read, CBSE seemsto be a bit more application oriented than ICSE, we kind of inclined to go for CBSE, since it's seems sort of hybrid between international and local approach. Yes, there would a bit of learning curve especially with language, I guess we have to gut it out ...
They will be entering into competitve exams would be from 10th grade i belive! yes, this is a long term preparation too . At the same time they should not be struggling on secong languages instead of putting addiitonal effort on primary subjects. At least that's what my perspective was when i looked at CBSE books .
i would suggest if possible take a look at the text books, that would give us some idea as to where the kid would fit better. Ultimately we would prefer a smooth transition for them.
I did not rule out the option of attending a year or so, in IGCSE and slowly converting in to CBSE syllabus. But, kind of hesitant of too many transitions, although second transition of moving from IGCSE to CBSE is not that bad ..
What grades would your kids be joining ?
yeh! i am planning the same to gradually move them to CBSE.My kids would be coming to 6th & 2nd grade. Just to build up some hope, other parents who have moved from here to India has transitioned on same lines & were sucessful.But they did it at very young age(kindergarten/1st grade).
what age are your kids? Do you have any area /schools in mind?
As for me, i have been watching feedback from various parents on this site & thinking broadly about hitec area etc. Nothing in particular yet.
Will be attending 6th & 3rd grade, we most likely live in the same area, do not want them to commute more than 20 mts ...
Have you guys decided on the school ? we are leaning towards Chirec, as everbody has been suggesting that ....
I am still shopping on the schools.Based on many blogs i have few in my list like chirec, oakridge, manthan, Sentia, Phoenix Greens etc. will have to make the final decision after moving there. we are planning to move in may/june time frame, so may be a bit late already. Thought of holding the seats but there are no gaurantees!
Hello Back2Roots, Aum,I am returning back to India in June 2012. I have 13 year old son who will be completing 8th grade in US (and is an Indian Citizen) and 4 year old who would be going to KG next year (he is USC with PIO card). I am also thinking on the same lines as you have been. I have following questions and would like your help with those:
Would appreciate if you share your experiences of settling down your kids and provide some inputs.
Thanks in advance.
another point is offcourse the langauge. In CBSE or ICSE pattern, can my elder son skip taking the Indian langauge for 9th/10th Grade? He will not be able to compete on the Hindi/Marathi at that level.
Would appreciate your help and inputs on this.
