I need guidance on what is the best way forward. I'm being transferred to China on an assignment for 2 - 3 years. My son is currently in the 9th std CBSE board in National Public School Bangalore. I checked schools in Guangzhou and there are British International, American International Schools available with IB/ IGCSE curriculum. However, my dilemma is that everywhere its published that IGCSE is 9th and 10th focused. So, if I shift him now to a 10th std class directly into IGSCE - do you see any harm. Or do you recommend that I keep him in B'lore for a year till he completes his 10th in a CBSE residential school if he gets admission.
