Merits and Demerits of Improvement Exam

CBSE Improvement Exam has its own merits and demerits. On one hand, ff a student scores improved marks in all the subjects he/she filled for improvement, there is no need for combining two marksheets but if the student is unable to score better marks in CBSE Improvement Exam, then he have to present both marksheets wherever required.

The CBSE Improvement Exam marksheet is different from the regular board marksheet since “APPEARED FOR IMPROVEMENT” is mentioned on the CBSE Improvement Exam marksheet.

Another demerit is that the CBSE Improvement exam marksheet has only the subjects in which the student has appeared for improvement, not the previous subjects.

Despite of these demerits, CBSE Improvement exam has its own benefits in improving the result of a deserving candidate in case he/she was somehow unable to score well in the regular board examinations.

    Sir, I want to give improvement exam for two subjects only, then how will i present my marksheet..?? can these marksheets be merged for future refrence of any authority??
    or which marksheet will i show everywhere?? its very imp. for me sir, please advise me.. and how i go on for my college, it would take off an year….would a marksheet be formed which will have marks of all 6 subjects, replacing the lesser ones…??

    • Rjnish

      The improvement mark sheet will contain only 2 subjects which u have applied for improvement so better apply for all five subjects.


    Sir I’m in a big confusion whether to give improvement or not because if I can get new marksheet approved by cbse without any scars on it that I have given improvement than I’ll appear for improvement or else I’ll not.

    Quick reply is expected

    • Rjnish

      It will have scar in block letters “APPERED FOR IMPROVEMENT”

    i have passed my 12th this year and i have got 69.2% in total and 60% in PCM respectively.
    if I am applying for IIT JEE mains exam, whether i have to give improvement exam for all subjects or i can choose between them!

    Suppose i gave exams for all the 5 subjects of my boards syllabus and in two sunjects my marks increased and in three my marks decreased.
    So how the marks will be calculated?
    will they decrease the marks of the papers in which i didnt perform well or they will leave it as it was earlier before
