There are broadly four stages of school education in India, namely primary, upper primary, secondary and high school. Overall, schooling lasts 12 years, following the "10+2 pattern". Secondary education is the stage of education following primary school. Secondary education is generally the final stage of compulsory education. Usually, students from ages 14 to 18 study in this section. These schools may be affiliated to boards like PSEB or various other boards like CBSE, ICSE.
