Regarding article published in Mumbai Mirror titled “Fish out of IB”

Dear Students & Parents ,
Please refer to the article(link mentioned below). As mentioned in the article that IB and other international board helps in developing a curious mind.Also according to the article these boards help students in developing 21st century skills.

Also in the article education counselor, Viral Doshi claims that the pressure on IB students to move abroad is real. “But some Indian colleges offer excellent programmes and I don’t see why IB students shouldn’t apply here.”

However also mentioned in the article that studying in India involve challenges.

But in spite of the challenges(as highlighted in the article) many many Indian IB students are now studying in India itself (and are probably doing well).
Ultimately the decision(whether to study in India or abroad) is student’s own.
We on our part will continue to create awareness so that students and parents make an informed decision.
