While some students from CBSE and ICSE have decided to continue with their own school, some are waiting for the online FYJC admissions that will commence after the declaration of the SSC results.

Most students and parents choose the same school as they believe that environment is very conducive. Bir added that parents believe that continuing with the same school gives students a smooth transition to college.
Some students choose CBSE in classes XI and XII if they wish to excel in science-related exams in future. Similarly, some of the students from ICSE get admissions in ISC schools because of a comprehensive syllabus. Students who wish to abroad also prefer to enroll at ISC.
