Some points to note about the CBSE Improvement Exam:

  1. A candidate has to pass the Secondary School Examination of the Board in order to appear in the CBSE Improvement Examination. Students may appear in the failing subject (Sixth subject) at the Compartment Examination to be held in July/August the same year, then they can appear in the improvement examination next year (only if they pass in the compartment examination).
  2. The candidate cannot pursue higher studies in the mean time.
  3. Those reappearing in the whole examination, may appear as regular school candidates also.
  4. For subjects involving practical exams, students shall appear only in theory and previous practical marks will be carried forward to their new marksheet. In case the candidate has failed in practical he/she have to appear in theory and practical both irrespective of the fact that he/she has already cleared the theory examination.
  5. Compartment or supplementary examination is not conducted for CBSE Improvement Exam.

Candidates appearing in the CBSE Improvement are issued a new marksheet, reflecting the marks of the subjects they have appeared in the CBSE Improvement Exam only. New passing certificate is not issued since the previous year passing certificate is still valid.

There are two types of forms, one for Delhi is “DISSCE” (only for govt schools in Delhi) and one for All India is “AISSCE” (for private schools).
