well education system in india is quite different from other countries. recently the grading system had started, so its cool but till last year, students frm grade 8 to 12 wud get their results in terms of percentages. but now the percentage system is only for grade 11 n 12.
1. u generally do ur kindergarten by the age of 4 n 5. previously there were KG1 N KG2 but now theres only one year for KG. most of the kids are 6 during grade 1. n this continues.
call the schools? i am so so sorry i did not get that.
2.right from kg(or even nursery[before kg]) english is one language which is given importance. so in todays date, u find children as small as 3 or 4 speaking in english which is basic. for grade 1 english is very simple. consisting of rhymes and really easy stories.
as we go higher, degree of difficulty increases. then english grammar as well was literature takes turn by grade 6. there are longer stories or lessons, n grammar is little more vast. this happens till grade 10. and again the most difficult english u study in grade 11 and 12. u are given books by Shakespeare and other books like jane ayre, anne frank to read and are told to write reviews. but this is secondary. there is a main reader, which has poems n lessons with very high level english.
note: after grade 6, along with poems n lessons, PLAYS are also there in our books.
3.history is minimal till grade 5. equal to almost nothing. but soonafter grade 5 history is taught as a separate subject. from grade 6 to 8, we are basically taught indian history.
it is as follows:
grade 6: stone age-the early man, harappa civilization(indian), mauryan empire(king ashoka)
grade 7: all about religions coming up in india i.e hinduism, buddhism. mughal empire and birth of islam by Prophet Mohammad.
grade 8: colonization of india(rule by british from 1700's) and for next 200 yrs everything explained about their rule, policies, struggle for freedom and finally independence in 1947.
in grade 9 and 10 we are taught more about the world history. they as follows:
grade 9: french revolution, russian revolution, world war 1, its outcomes, german history(rise of hitler n nazi) and world war too. along with this 2 chapters on indian forest history and one chapter on CRICKET the sport.
grade 10: again one full chapter on independence of india(from 1916 to 1947) explaining the effect of MAHATMA GANDHI and other great leaders. then there are lessons on industrial revoltion all over the world, globalization, INDO-CHINA(vietnam) history n its independence, lessons on people's living n leisure and one lesson on PRINTING-origin, spreading and propagation.
after grade 10, students select their own subjects they may be:
physics, chemistry and biology or
Physics, chemistry and maths or
arts(humanities or geography)
4.geography is highly varying from grade 6 to 10. again just like history it is taught as a subject frm grade 6. every single thing.
5. now in india there are different boards for education- all india and state wise n even international
state board schools may teach the particular states language along with english(english is compulsory everywhere) they can be punjabi, marathi, gujrati, telgu, tamil, etc.
from grade 6 another language is taught which is SANSKRIT. it is said to be the mother of almost all languages in the world. it is a very systematic language. sanskrit is compulsory from grade 6 to 8. for grade 9 and 10 a child can choose any one one language(again english is obviously there, so bsides english) to study. it can be HINDI, SANSKRIT, ANY OTHER INDIAN LANGUAGE OR GERMAN, FRENCH, SPANISH(any other foreign language)
phew. lol m done with wotever i could tell u about education in india.
hope u get a basic info on it.
