There has been a considerable increase in the spread of educational institutes during the period 1950-51 and 2007-2008. During these periods scope for secondary and higher secondary education increased by 3 times. Thus, it has given rise to a particular segment of so called Private Candidates. A private candidate is someone who is not in full time education in a school, college or similar educational institution. A private candidate can be a part time student, someone studying evening courses, school dropout, someone taking a correspondence or distance learning course or someone who is being home schooled or self taught. Here Indira Gandhi Board of High School & Intermediate Certificate Examinations plays a vital role in balancing the equation of getting those special students in a common platform , where they can avail low cost optimum & substantial education, learn the basics , examine & certify and appear for their first benchmark of Examination and obtain certificate of secondary level. It is just an initiative in pursuance to our national educational drive to help, encourage and support the neo-literates.
