1.1 About CISCE
The COUNCIL was established in 1958 by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate to ensure that its examinations become adapted to the educational needs of the country.
   
In December 1967, the Council was registered as a society under the Society's Registration Act, 1980.
   
In 1973, the Council was listed in the Delhi School Education Act 1973, as a body conducting "public" examinations. Its headquarters are located in New Delhi with its Academic Training Center in Kolkata.
 
 
1.2 Academic Programs and Examinations
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations conducts three examinations namely, The Indian Certificate of Secondary Examination (ICSE, Year 10); The Indian School Certificate (ISC Year 12); and the Certificate in Vocational Education ( CVE- Year 12 ).
   
The subject choices and syllabuses prescribed by these examinations are varied and aimed at nurturing the unique gifts of each individual student.
   
The Exams are held in the first week of March every year and the results are declared by the end of May respectively.

1.3 Curriculum, Teaching and Assessment
The Board promotes a cross curricular and integrated approach toward the curriculum.
   
The subject choices and syllabuses prescribed by these examinations are varied and aimed at nurturing the unique gifts of each individual student.
   
Most of the classroom instructions are suggested to be interactively designed keeping the child in the center. The teacher's role is to allow a lot of hands on activities and project oriented learning, in other words the emphasis is on experiential learning.
   
The assessment is 'for the child and not of the child' as it is done continuously through the year without putting pressure on children.
   
The board proposes a fine blend of both formative and summative assessment processes, and gives a lot of weightage to co curricular activities, which is essential for the holistic development of the children.
