      I am sorry, you cannot give 12th exam from CBSE again. You can appear from NIOS if you want.

    I am appearing for physics,chemistry and biology exam this year. What if i dont give the chemistry exam?

    • Admin

      your new marksheet will have only the new subjects in it, so if you dont appear or fail, they will show absent or fail. Although the best marks of two marksheets are counted.

  18. Neeraj

    Sir,

      You cant appear for improvement now, you can appear in NIOS only now

    Dear Sir,
    This is regarding my brother, e has been unsuccessful in qualifying class 11, wanted to know if he can appear as a private candidate to appear for 12th? Also, is there a difference between taking cbse exam as a private student or from correspondence?

    • Admin

      Theres no option but to appear in class 12th again. He can opt for admission in a different school.

  20. Abhishek Kumawat

      Yes it will be mentioned that you appeared in improvement exam.

  21. raghavan

    please help me sir. i pleade you . please say for this. will i be able to attend college if i am appearing for improvement exam? i have just written my mathematics exam . i was not able to complete the paper in time and left 30 marks unattended . i am sure about the seventy rest. now suppose i appear for improvement exam in 2015-2016 will i be able to join any college? or i shouldn’t join college? PLEASE ANSWER TO THIS SIR. I will be thankful to you.

    • Admin

      No, you cannot go for higher studies while appearing or improvement exams. If you want to appear for JEE next year with improvement exam result, then you will have to appear in all 5 subjects in improvement exam. Good luck!

    Sir, I appeared in the class 12 CBSE board exam this year. I am afraid I will fail in maths.
    1. If a candidate fails in how many subjects, will he be placed in the compartment ?
    I have also decided to repeat class 12 at home by going for private tuitions. One big doubt is that, when I take the exams next year, will the exam centre be VERY far away from my house ( I am living in the state of Kerala, in Trivandrum and this time it was only about 8 kms from my house). Is there a special exam center only for the repeaters , or something like that ?

    • Admin

      Dot worry, if you think you will have compartment in maths then give it this year only. dont waste a year. You can have 2 compartments, dont worry, clear them this year only.

  23. BenChecker

    Also, a doubt is that, if I pass by repeating class 12, can it affect me in the future for other admissions or job applications, when the authorities look at the statistics ? (Like -if I and another guy appears for a job and when the authorities see that he passes 12th in first chance, he will be given preference) ?
