The educational systems in India and other countries differ significantly. Because we are social creatures, our surroundings and society significantly impact us, and education is no different.
To seek premium education, many Indian students look for study-abroad options. When a student studies abroad, it provides a lot of parameters to groom the personality as the students will have to live independently in a new country.
The Education System in India
The Indian educational system emphasises grades, degrees, and academic possibilities. In India, vocational education is not highly recommended. However, the Indian educational system has also undergone significant transformation with the times and increased awareness.
The levels of education are the primary basis for the divisions within the Indian education system. India offers education at four different levels:
- Lower Primary,
- Upper Primary,
- High School,
- Senior Secondary.
Children at each educational level come from various ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. The senior secondary level has commerce, science, and the humanities as the three main streams in India. The NEP 2020 has made a few changes in the Indian education system, allowing students to choose their desired subject irrespective of commerce, science, or the humanities.
In India, education is divided into three stages: 10+2+3, which implies primary education until class 10, then picking a stream in class 12, and finally pursuing a degree, effectively a three or four-year study.
In India, universities and colleges are divided into three categories: public (operated by the government), autonomous (run partially by the government and partly by the private sector), and personal (run totally by the private sector).
