It is also the preferred syllabus for those who seek to pursue a career in engineering or medicine, as the focus is most on the science subjects.
Another advantage of the CBSE syllabus being offered by Siddhartha Public School is the constant evaluation of a student’s academic progress. Instead of going the quarterly, half-yearly and the annual exam model, the student is assessed throughout the year and one final formative assessment. There are 9 grades that would be assigned to the student, based on the marks they have accumulated throughout the academic year.
The syllabus is designed in such a way so as to make it easy for the students to process the information being taught to them. Thanks to multiple activities that the students can participate in, they will be able to prove themselves and be able to score points based on their understanding and performance. This is ideal to allow a student to be able to make up for any lost marks throughout the academic calendar, which is in stark contrast to the usual 3-exam method followed by other curriculums.
The course is structured in such a way that students do not feel any undue pressure. In fact, even the textbooks are designed so that there are fun activities between chapters so that it would make it a lot more interactive for the student to learn the concepts being taught. The curriculum also facilitates a student’s ambition to pursue higher education. Most of the entrance exams for premier institutions like IIT and AIIMS are conducted by CBSE itself, so it gives the students who have studied in this curriculum an edge over the others.
Another advantage of a CBSE curriculum is it allows students to pick a stream of their choice and focus to study in their field of interest. The curriculum also ensures that physical and mental growth are taken care of, with the physical education also playing an important role in the student’s growth. By getting students to participate in various sports, it not only provides physical recreation, but also a sense of teamwork among the students.
