The Association of Indian Universities has approved the curriculum as equivalent to the present curriculum offered by the Central Board of Secondary Education. CBSE will offer its international curriculum (CBSE-i) to 50 Indian schools from the 2012-13 academic session reported the Times of India.

The international curriculum was launched in 2010-11 across 26 schools in classes I and IX in the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and other Gulf countries to provide a less expensive and quality-oriented alternative to foreign boards like International Baccalaureate (IB) and International General Certificate of Secondary Education. In 2011-12, the curriculum was extended to Classes II, VI and X, and this year, it will be extended to Classes II, VII and XI.
