What Is Special About Open Schooling - Some Insights into NIOS

The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) was set up by the Government of India in 1989. The objective of the program is to give children who are unable to attend conventional schools (for any reason) access to the same education as those who do attend traditional schools.

It offers a range of learning courses up to the pre-degree level:

  • Open Basic Education that is available to anyone over the age of 14. There are 3 levels of learning that are equivalent to classes III, V, VIII of the traditional school system.

Online Learning – The Future of Education

Students of today who have grown up with computers and the internet, know the benefits that online learning offers and are comfortable with the system. However, it often happens that their parents are resistant to the idea. They may use computers for work and other activities, but having studies in traditional classrooms with other students to interact with and teachers physically present, they often feel that this is the right way to learn. It is true that online learning can never fully replace the classroom method of instruction, especially in the early years. However, for students working towards specific objectives, such as competitive examinations like SAT, online learning offers numerous advantages. If you are preparing for a competitive exam and are having difficulty in persuading your parents that online preparation is the right way to proceed, here are the arguments that may be used to convince them of the benefits of your course of action.

Advantages of Taking the SAT Subject Test

Studying for the SAT and taking the examination is tough enough. Is there really any point in taking on the additional burden of doing the SAT subject test also? Is there any need to devote time and energy to studying for an optional test that focuses exclusively on only one subject? The answer is simply that it is. There are numerous reasons why.

Advantages Of Taking The SAT Subject Test

These include:

  • The subject test may not always be truly optional. Some colleges require an applicant to have done at least one subject test as part of the application process or for admission to specific courses. It is important to check the requirements for a college, so you know if the subject test is essential. Do not make the mistake of thinking that if it is only “recommended” you can skip it. Other applicants will be taking the tests and being left out puts you at a disadvantage.
  • You can highlight your strengths. Unlike the rest of SAT, this is one area where you can choose the subject you want to take. In other words, this is an

Scholarships You Can Apply For Based On SAT/ACT Score

Every university in the United States has its own scholarship schemes and application process. The amount of financial assistance varies greatly, and each university or college has its own criteria for awarding scholarships and the amount of aid that will be given. The only way to find out about the scholarships available and the eligibility for them is to visit the websites of the universities/colleges. Make a list of the places you would like to study and visit the websites to get information on what assistance is available and how to apply.

There are some scholarships that are available purely on the SAT scores. What follows is a list of a few of them. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list. Additionally, because policies and procedures for scholarships are subject to regular revisions by the organizations and institutions that offer them, getting up to date information directly from the organization is important.

The Best Websites for IGCSE Sciences

There are a huge number of websites that offer notes, revision courses and other support for students attempting IGCSE. The problem is that the quality of the material offered varies a great deal. You may get up to date and useful inputs, but you could also waste valuable time going through material that is of no help to you. This can seriously hurt your preparation because the time and effort you have wasted will become obvious only once you have started the process. Another problem with these sites is that they take a “one size fits all” approach. In other words, they cater to the most common issues that students face with no flexibility to deal with specific individual learning and preparation needs. No two people are the same in terms of how they internalize information, the time it takes them, the areas where they may be weak and need extra support and so on. Most of the websites that you can find online cannot deal with this.

Why Is The ISC Curriculum Really Suited For Humanities?


The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) is a national level, private board of school education in India. The CISCE conducts the Indian School Certificate (ISC) examinations for Class XII. The field of humanities is all about learning the functioning of human society, systems and social relationships. Though humanities was once considered as a stream meant for under-performers, it is now gaining ground both with students and parents as an attractive stream that lends many opportunities both to pursue higher education and climb the career ladder in future.

Students interested in the field of humanities find the ISC curriculum to be more engaging and flexible as it offers varied subjects.
