Indian Education System

The Indian education system was originally based on the British model, but changed over the years into a 10+2+3 system, i.e. 10 years of basic education, 2 years of senior general secondary education and 3 years of higher education. The basis for the structure of all parts of the education system is the National Policy on Education (1992).
The school years are numbered and indicated by Class or standard, these terms are used interchangeably. Class X or standard X or even K-10 mean the same.
Primary school generally refers to education for children aged 6 through 11 (standard I through standard V). Upper primary school and secondary school cover education for Children aged 11 to 16 (standard VI through standard X). The last 2 years (standard XI and XII) are sometimes referred to as high school (ages 16 through 18).
