The Cisce Board
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) is a privately held national-level board of school education in India that conducts the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education and the Indian School Certificate Examination for Class X and Class XII respectively. It was established in 1958. Over 2,300 schools in India and abroad are affiliated to the CISCE. It is also recognised as a ‘Non-Governmental Board of School Education’ by the Constitution of India.
This Indian Council was set up on the grounds that a board was required to administer the examinations being conducted in India by the 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 University.
