The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has been in existence since 1958. Since its inception, the board has witnessed several changes in its constitution and jurisdiction. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) was finally granted permission to conduct the public examination in the year 1973.
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) conducts the ISC and the ICSE examination on the yearly basis. Apart from the ISC 12 Board Examinations and the ICSE 10 Examinations, the board also conducts the Certificate of Vocational Education Examinations, which was created in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).
The then Minister of Education- Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, presided over a conference in 1952 on pan-India level Certificate examinations. The aim was to consider the replacement of the overseas Cambridge School Certificate Examination by an All India Examination.
This Indian Council was set-up on the grounds that a board was required to administer the examinations being conducted in India by the worldly-reputed University of Cambridge and to optimally tailor them according to the nation’s need. The future education policies were prepared under the aegis of the Cambridge varsity.
The CISCE exams are internationally recognized due to the reputed United Kingdom-inspired syllabus (by Cambridge Univ). Most of European Universities will duly accept ISC ie. Year 12 English language grades of avg. 80% + in lieu of high-grades in English proficiency tests such as the IELTS or TOEFL.
