The Indian Educational System

Education in India is provided by the public sector as well as the private sector, with control and funding coming   from three levels: centralized, state, and local. Ministry of Human Resource Development, Declare to now Education has also been made free for children for 5 to 14 years of age or up to class VIII under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009. The Indian government made a promise to provide free primary education.

The Indian school year runs from April to March.
 * The school year is divided into three terms of three months each, with a break at the end of each term.

The indian Educational system includes Seven years of primary school and Three years of secondary school.
  • Primary school attendance is mandatory and primary tuition has been free in Indian since 1996. However, parents must pay fees for uniforms and other items.
  • Some poorer children still do not attend primary school.
  • At the end of Standard 10 (10th) students take a standardized test, the Indian Certificate of Primary Education (GSEB) exam, to try to qualify for admission to a high school of their choice.
  • Most nomadic children attend primary school in distant locations where resources can be limited and teachers less qualified. Therefore, Teachers understands that the GSEB score alone may not imitate the student’s capabilities.
  • Secondary School in india costs each student an average of Rs,1200 per year, well above the annual income of an average wandering family.
  • Students in secondary school take 11 and 12 required courses a term, including English, Arts, Commerce and Sciences.
