IB Recognition in India

IB – International Baccalaureate, the board followed by Eastern Public School is recognized by the Association of Indian universities (AIU), the regulatory body, which has been given complete control and authority by the Human Resource Development Ministry to recognize all education boards in the country.

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council evaluates the quality of higher education in India, professional councils are responsible for recognition of courses, and the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) is responsible for determining equivalences of foreign degrees/certificates. The IB Diploma has been recognized by the AIU as an entry level qualification for admissions to all universities in India since 1983 and renewed in 2010. According to AIU: “The International Baccalaureate Diploma…has been equated with +2 stage (Grade 12) qualification of an Indian Board since 1983. Students aspiring to join Indian Universities after completion of their IB Diploma i.e. 12th standard are eligible to pursue their Bachelor’s degree programme from any Indian University.
