The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, which controls and shapes the ICSE curriculum, is committed to serving the nation's children through high quality educational endeavours, by empowering them to contribute towards a humane, just and pluralistic society, and by promoting introspective living through exciting learning opportunities, all with a commitment to excellence.
For over 60 years, since the All India Certificate Examinations Conference was held under the chairmanship of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad to replace the overseas Cambridge School Certificate Examination by an All India Examination, CISCE has remained the pioneer educational board in our country.
CISCE conducts three examinations: the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) for grade ten, the Indian School Certificate (ISC) for grade 12, and the Certificate in Vocational Education (CVE) also for grade 12. Subject choices and syllabuses prescribed for these examinations are varied and aimed at nurturing the unique gifts of every child.
BGS MPS offers schooling up to the tenth grade at which point students sit the examination for ICSE, an examination in a course of general education set in accordance with the recommendations of the New Education Policy of 1986. As far as curricula are concerned all academic grades taught at BGS MPS are designed to prepare students for the ICSE examination. The medium of teaching throughout is English.
Among other things CISCE focuses on trust and fair play, minimum monitoring, allowing schools to evolve their own niche, catering to the needs of individual children, giving institutions and individual the freedom to experiment with new ideas and practices, and diversity and plurality.
