#  Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) examination is conducted for class 10th, under aegis of Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations. CISCE is a non-governmental board of school education in India, it was established in 1958 by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate. Generally, it is considered as the toughest board exam in India.
