  2. sir, i have completed my 12 th in 2011 with PCM but had scored less marks in maths and physics due which i can’t apply for few courses . i want to ask if i could appear for improvement exam in 2016 or not?
    please reply soon
    eagerly waiting for your reply.

  3. I have applied for October exam, while applying mistakenly I opted just for physics and mathematics, is it possible to add 3 more subjects along with them so that I can clear my 12th through October exam?

  4. I want to give on demand exam for physics and math as I was commerce student. I am planning to give the exam in sept or in December so do I take admissions in learning centre for preparation for exam? Or I have to study by my own? Please help. Thank you.

    1. You can prepare on your own since you get the books and study material at home. But the NIOS exams syllabus is more tough than that of CBSE so I wouyld suggest you to take the coaching if you find any credible locally.

      1. So they won’t make me prepare for exam ? And what if I give exam in December, then too I have to study by my own or I can take admissions in nios to prepare myself is that even option? I’m very confused. Thank you
