Moreover, the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) is an examination administered by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, a private board following the guidelines of the New Education Policy 2020 (India). It is conducted in English and aims to offer a comprehensive general education.

Additionally, ICSE ensures that responsible schools affiliated with it can present themselves effectively in their respective states or territories. Furthermore, the National Admissions and Accreditation agency of the UK, UCAS (Universities and College Admission Services), acknowledges ICSE as equivalent to the Higher School qualification of the University of Scotland.

ICSE, renowned for its extensive curriculum, places a significant emphasis on the English language, as well as a wide range of subjects encompassing language, arts, commerce, and science. The instruction in ICSE is exclusively in English, allowing students to develop a strong command of the language and literature right from kindergarten. This proficiency proves invaluable as it equips ICSE graduates with the ability to write succinctly in English, facilitating success in competitive exams such as IELTS and TOEFL.

Notably, ICSE has consistently held a position as one of the foremost educational boards globally, attributed to its rigorous syllabus.
