Considering the schooling system in India dates back to centuries, where the gurukul system was followed mostly. The Gurukuls were essentially where students learnt under the guidance of a teacher or guru while staying in the latter's home actually. So, This involved everything from keeping up cleanliness on the premises to studying scriptures too. So, Many religions, such as Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism, followed this tradition of schooling as well. Moreover, A few of the oldest teaching institutes at Taxila, Nalanda and Vikramashila are recognized as India's earliest universities in that era.

Also, India established schools and centres for higher education before becoming independent from the British invaders. So, Some of these are more than a century old and continue to be prestigious educational institutions even today too. So, The Indian Institute of Science, established in 1909, for instance, is one of the leading educational institutes in the country as well.  Additionally, after the introduction of the British system of education, it's known that there was a drastic decrease in indigenous institutes across the country too. So, while Christian missionaries introduced English language schools and the Jesuits mixed this in with the European college systems. Thus, The first Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur was established in 1950 that is quite early, so the post-independence to promote technical education Properly.

Moreover, Children in India enter schooling from the young age of two into pre-nursery or playschool actually. So, Primary education from the ages six to fourteen is mandatory according to the Indian government altogether.  Also, the Diploma courses can be taken right after the school years. It is providing certification in specialized courses too. So, the students who have completed their secondary education are eligible to get admission for an undergraduate degree in the arts, science, and commerce field as well. Thus, there were close to 40 thousand colleges in the country for technical and research training in the 2017 year. So, Currently, Bangalore, the state capital of Karnataka has the highest number of colleges in its urban district actually.

So, Apart from regular schooling, usually, students take up private tuition for early school years for above-average performances in academics too.  Also, A plethora of learning institutes has been growing steadily in recent years. To prepare students to fare well in competitive examinations. Additionally, The results of competitive exams conducted nationwide are crucial for admission to engineering, medical, and other civil services etc. Though these institutes have benefitted the micro-economy. It induces stress among students who must put in extra hours of learning apart from regular school hours mostly.

Now the country, in general, follows a national curriculum for all subjects that are decided by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, which enables the mobility of specific jobs as such. So, Even though there is a systematic education system in India. There is massive unemployment among graduates too. Also, there are more students graduating each year than the number of jobs available in the country entirely.
