The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) is a private, non-governmental board of school education in India that conducts two examinations in India: the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) in the Xth standard, and the Indian School Certificate (ISC) in the XIIth standard. The ICSE & ISC divisions are keenly involved in developing new syllabuses, curriculum frameworks and assessment systems to make education relevant, challenging and exciting.
TIPS offers the curriculum from the 8th to the 12th standard.
The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education Examination has been designed to provide an examination in a course of general education, through the medium of English. The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education Examination ( ICSE ) ensures a general education without any diversification of studies as all candidates are required to enter and sit for six subjects and Socially Useful Productive Work. Private candidates are not permitted to appear for the examination.
The Indian School Certificate Examination ( ISC ) has been designed as an examination, through the medium of English, , after a two-year course of studies beyond the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (Year-10) Examination or its equivalent. All candidates must enter and sit for English (compulsory), with three, four or five elective subjects and must have been evaluated internally by the School and secured a pass grade in Socially Useful Productive Work and Community Service (compulsory). Private candidates are not permitted to appear for the examination.
The Indian School Certificate is recognised as the pre-university qualification by the UK and other overseas Universities in the Commonwealth. At TIPS Kochi, students are supported to realize their potential by the well experienced faculty and international infrastructural facilities. Students are constantly counseled and monitored to perform without being stressed.
