NIOS conducts its main exams twice every year hence becoming a boon specially for the failed students of other recognised boards who can reappear in their board exams within 3 months of their result and Also gives a possibility of carrying forward the marks of the passed subjects from the failed marksheet of the student.
The main advantage of passing secondary (10th) or senior secondary (12th) through NIOS instead of reappearing in that same board exam which you failed earlier is that it saves you a year in your education. Also it has another examination schedule under STREAM 3 & 4 which gives candidates a chance to reappear, under these streams exams are conducted every month except in the month of Oct-Nov & Mar-April, hence conducting exams 8 times a year excluding the two main exams. Another thing which makes Nios more important is that all its documents have Govt. of India printed On it, which gives it more genuinity .
If any university/institution objects in taking admission of a NIOS passed students then it is directly challenging the Ministry of Human Resource and development, government of India as the university is passed through a resolution (No. F.5-24/90 Sch.3 dated 14 September 1990 published in the Gazette of India on 20 October 1990). In the present PERCENTILE scenario of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) NIOS has the most competitive percentile score among national boards and provides a great benefit to the Aspirants of IIT-JEE .
NIOS Secondary Level (10th)
Please be very very careful while you select subjects for 12th NIOS examination. Many tuition or coaching classes OR Agents are found misguiding the parents and students. Normally they fill up the form without asking your choice and students ultimately fail even in NIOS.
It is our humble request to consult Nios Coaching Center for right advice. We advise for subjects on the basis of student’s learning capacity, interest, future plan for study, financial condition etc.
