Which Curriculum is Right for my Child?

The CAIE, or Cambridge Assessment International Education, has its roots in the esteemed University of Cambridge. This curriculum is not only designed by this world-renowned institution but has also garnered widespread recognition and affiliation globally. On the other hand, the CBSE, standing for the Central Board of Secondary Education, is an Indian national curriculum. It carries a strong reputation across Indian Educational institutions with growing acceptance abroad.

With over 30 years of affiliation with CBSE secondary education, our robust curriculum offers a holistic experience across English, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Sciences, Computer Science, Robotics and Hindi, Telugu and French. Students learn two languages in addition to English until Grade 8, one of which must be Hindi as per CBSE Guidelines. As per the Telangana Government guidelines, students also study Telugu as a compulsory subject.

Our Cambridge curriculum offers in-depth mastery of English, Mathematics, Science, History & Civics, Geography, Global Perspectives, Computer Science (AI & ML), Robotics and one Language – Hindi, French or Spanish. At the end of Stage 8, students take a Checkpoint examination in English, Mathematics and Science. As per the Telangana Government guidelines, Telugu is taught as a third language.

In Stages 9 and 10, our international high school students focus on preparing for the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Examination (IGCSE) where they gain a deep understanding of core subjects from five curriculum areas.

Group I Group II Group III Group IV Group V
Languages Humanities & Social Sciences Sciences Mathematics Creative, Technical & Vocational
English Economics Physics Extended Mathematics Accounting
Hindi Environmental Management Chemistry Additional Mathematics Business Studies
French Global Perspectives Biology Computer Science
Spanish English Literature Art and Design

** Extended Mathematics is offered as an accelerated course (studied and examined in one year) and as a normal two-year course. Students who score a grade no lower than an A are offered Additional Maths as a one-year accelerated course.

At CHIREC, we believe that both boards have been meticulously crafted to draw out the best in students, shaping them into future-ready individuals who are equipped to succeed in India and abroad. If you’re grappling with choosing the most suitable board for your child, please reach out to our Admissions team for a more personalised insight.
