Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination, abbreviated as CISCE Board, is a private, non-governmental school education board. It is headquartered in New Delhi. The board conducts two examinations in India, the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) as well as the Indian School Certificate(ISC). In the year 1956, the CISCE was set up at the meeting of the Inter-State Board of Anglo-Indian Education.
During this meeting it was finalized that the Indian Council will be set up for administering the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate’s Examinations in India. It slightly differs from CBSE and NIOS for not being a government sponsored board. The main motive behind the formation of the CISCE Board is to provide the high quality school education to its students. Every year the CISCE conducts the exam of ICSE for Class Xth and ISC for Class 12th and provides certificate to the qualified students.
