Written by  | Published in: News

As class VIII students will be entering into board classes, where they can choose the subject of their liking from a number of subjects in class IX itself. A student of class IX can choose any 3 subjects out of the following subjects:

1.                   Maths

2.                   Science

3.                   Computer Science

4.                   Commercial Studies

5.                   Economics

6.                   Humanities (Many Subjects)

 The students who do not like Maths or Science and do not want to pursue these subjects in XI and XII can opt for the subjects of their choice right in class IX itself. This great facility is available in ‘Chaman Vatika’ as we are affiliated to ICSE. Unfortunately these facilities are not available in CBSE or other boards. There is another facility available in ICSE which is not there in CBSE. For Science Students, if they failed in Maths, but pass in Science or vice versa, they will still be given a pass certificates and they can join class XI in any school.

Taking the above facts into consideration, we decided to have an interactive counselling session with parents on Sunday the 3rd of Feb 2013, which was presided over by the Principal of the school. It was a very lively session, in which there was very fruitful and hearty discussion between our teachers and parents. Some of the class VIII students who were present in the session also presented their views. However, there were certain queries raised by many parents, which were satisfactorily answered by our teachers, but unfortunately all the parents could not attend this interactive session. As we feel that the same queries can be in the minds of all those parents also who could not attend the session, we are giving below those queries and their answers.

Query No. 1  We understand that Science and English are more difficult in ICSE than CBSE.

 A.     No, it only looks like that, because in ICSE all topics, which the children are going to study in class XI and XII are included in the syllabus. But these topics are discussed only on the conceptual level, so that when the students graduate to class XI the concepts of all the topics are clear to them, which helps them in better understanding of all the topics. No difficult questions are asked in the board exams. of class X.

 B.    However the standard of English is better in ICSE than in CBSE. Those students who are very weak in English should take up CBSE only, because in CBSE a child can answer the paper of all subjects, other than English in Hindi also. But in professional colleges whether Engineering, Medical, Law or MBA etc, students are taught in English only and they have to attempt all papers in English only. However, students at ‘Chaman Vatikaget very good marks in English also, because of our special training in written as well as spoken English.

Query No. 2    Why is it that in Science the ICSE has three separate papers for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, 2 in S.St. and 2 in English, while CBSE is having only one Paper for each of these subjects?

A    This is because the choice of questions in ICSE is three times more than the in CBSE. When all the three different subjects of Science i.e. Physics, Chemistry & biology are compressed into one paper the choice is also compressed. In CBSE student does not have much choice if he forgets the answer to even one question. Same is true for other subjects also. In ICSE, the students have to attempt only 1/3 or 1/2  of the syllabus in one paper. That is why students get better marks in ICSE than those in CBSE.

The results of the last 5 years is given below, for you to decided, whether your child will get better marks in ‘Chaman Vatika’ or in any other school.

3.    Is there any arrangement of coaching the students for competitive exams like, AIEEE or IITJEE etc for class IX & X also.

A.     Yes, We have already made arrangement with ‘ACE Tutorials’ who will be preparing those students for these exams who opt to go for such coaching, luckily our teachers will also be available to clarify any such points, which the students may not be able to understand in the coaching classes.

        Over and above that, we are planning to take special care of brilliant students by creating Star Classes for them, where the standard of education will be very high. However, remedial classes will also be available for students who are weak in one or more subjects

        We also believe that with goods intelligence quotient an equally good emotional quotient also very important for a child to grow up to be a successful person in life. We have made arrangement with some renowned psychiatrists, and counsellors who will be visiting the school regularly to attend to the emotional needs of the students

         Keeping the importance of emotional quotient in view, we have also made arrangement with ‘Art of Living’ society by which they will be taking regular Yoga classes for the development of mind as well as body.

           With this we assure you of providing a holistic, all round education to your child.
