Education System in India

Education School/Level Grade From Grade To Age From Age To Years
Primary Elementary School 1 8 6 14 8
Secondary Secondary School 9 12 14 18 4
Tertiary University/College Level
Tertiary Technical Institutes 4

Primary Education

Primary education consists of Lower Primary School (Standards I to V) that begins at age of 6 and Middle/Upper Primary school education (Standards VI to VIII) ends at the age of 14. This education is compulsory and free in India and offered at state-run and private schools, however, private schools often have poorer facilities and infrastructure than government schools. The regional language is the medium of instruction for most primary schools and English as a second language generally begins by grade 3 only.

Secondary Education

Secondary education begins in grade 9 and lasts until grade 12. The secondary stage also can be divided into Lower Secondary School, or ‘Standard X’, and Upper/Senior Secondary School, or ‘Standard XII’. The boards of secondary education of which there are 31 determine curriculum for the Higher Secondary Certificate Examination. Although the HSCE is the most common Standard XII examination, the All India Senior School Certificate (CBSE), Indian School Certificate, Certificate of Vocational Education (CISCE), Senior Secondary Certification (NIOS), Intermediate Certificate and the Pre-University Certificate are also offered.

Tertiary Education

India’s higher education system is highly centralized and undergoing large changes since its inception in 1947. Largely based upon the British system of education, educational policy is ever developing.

There are various types of tertiary institutions in India, namely Universities (Central, State, Open), Universities of National Importance, and Deemed universities. Instruction of the mass of students, almost 80%, is ended at affiliated colleges with the curriculum, examinations, and final degree being premeditated and approved by the university. Constituent and Autonomous colleges also subsist; though less common although they do enjoy greater independence in regards to curriculum development and assessment.

Beginning in 2015, the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) was introduced by the UGC in endeavors to encourage a more interdisciplinary approach to education and offer more litheness and choice to students. The reform also introduced a standardized assessment and grading plan based upon a 10-point scale. Since its inauguration, the system has faced inspection by students and administrators, noting that although the system promises choice and flexibility, the infrastructure of the educational system now may be too weak yet to support the refurbishment.

Universities Overview in India: State-wise Location of Universities

The higher education system in India includes both Private and Public University. The Government of India and the state governments support public universities, while various bodies and societies mostly support private universities. Universities in India are recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC), which draws its power from the University Grants Commission Act, 1956. In addition, 16 Professional Councils are established, controlling different aspects of accreditation and coordination. All recognized universities are members of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU), which is integral to the dissemination of information and serves as an advisor to the government, UGC, and the institutions themselves as well.

The types of universities include:

  • Central Universities or Union universities are established by Act of Parliament and are under the purview of the Department of Higher Education in the Union Human Resource Development Ministry. As of 01.06.2020, the UGC lists 54 central universities.
  • State universities are run by the state government of each of the states and territories of India and are usually established by a local legislative assembly act. As of 01.06.2020, the UGC lists 412 state universities. The oldest establishment date listed by the UGC is 1857, shared by the University of Mumbai, the University of Madras, and the University of Calcutta.
  • Deemed university or “Deemed-to-be-University”, is a status of autonomy granted by the Department of Higher Education on the advice of the UGC, under Section 3 of the UGC Act. The UGC list from 12 February 2020 lists 127 deemed universities. According to this list, the first institute to be granted deemed university status was the Indian Institute of Science, which was granted this status on 12 May 1958. Note that in many cases, the same listing by the UGC covers several institutes. For example, the listing for Homi  Bhabha National Institute covers the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research and other institutes.
  • State Private Universities are approved by the UGC. They can grant degrees but they are not allowed to have off-campus affiliated colleges. The UGC list of private universities from 01.06.2020 lists 356 private universities.

Apart from the above universities, other institutions are granted permission to autonomously award degrees. However, they do not affiliate colleges and are not officially called “universities” but “autonomous organizations” or “autonomous institutes”. They fall under the administrative control of the Department of Higher Education. These organizations include the Indian Institutes of Technology, the National Institutes of technology, the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, the Indian Institutes of Management and other autonomous institutes which are known as Institutes of National Importance. These institutes are not listed below. Also not listed are institutes, which are under the control of the professional councils, without the approval of the UGC, e.g. Agricultural Universities, which are under the control of the Agricultural Education Division of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), one of the professional council.

Most universities are ‘affiliating universities’, which prescribe to the affiliated colleges the admission criteria and courses of study, hold examinations and award degrees.

University departments impart postgraduate education and conduct and promote research in a variety of disciplines.

Undergraduate and, to some extent, postgraduate instruction is imparted by the colleges affiliated to a particular university.
