We are NRIs and settled in Middle East, my son is in IB curriculum since beginning and now i start to worry if we should shift him to CBSE curriculum? 


This is because of competiitive entrance examinations in India. After his IB DP HL level we would like him to pursue his Bachelors from India and for that he need to prepare well for these entrance examinations like JEE / NEET or might be SAT test. 


What would you recommend for us, sticking to IB will be an advantage or it might be a problem for us later on. As these examinations are India based and we have completely ignored CBSE curriculum. 


Please suggest us ASAP.

    We too planned for moving to CBSE curriculum at some point of time, but its not worth moving after completing a milestone in IB curriculum. Just choose the combination of right subjects in DP SL / HL level and you will be able to write almost all Indian entrance examinations like JEE / NEET etc. 


    Further if you looking to get admission in US universities (other countries) most of the places you are required to have a SAT / ACT score. Which is easy if you were in IB curriculum than CBSE. 


    My suggestion would be IB anyday!

    Hi Maria, Practically there is no need to shift from IB to CBSE curriculum here. Your son can still write JEE / NEET / SAT and much more effectively than CBSE student. 

    IB in itself is a very rigorous curriculum and my daugther also studied in IB program and now successfully doing her electrical engineering from NIT under DASA scheme. 

    I dont think it will be a good decision altogether.
