A general doubt among many individuals is the difference between ICSE and CBSE. The first and the foremost thing is that the level of examination is tougher in ICSE than in CBSE but as per the students of ICSE, they say that ICSE has a huge course to be covered whereas CBSE is a bit more student oriented and plays emphasis on practical education but at the same time ICSE provides a strong edifice for the subsequent building of the character. So according to me if you can get upto class Xth education from ICSE and the senior secondary from CBSE, there is nothing better than this combination but the practicality of the solution is also negligible as you just can’t switch between states of India to get admission to ICSE or CBSE affiliated schools.
