How students having Biology as an additional subject should fill the Neet form? I have passed class 12th in 2018 from cbse in subject group PCM and had given exam for Bio. as an additional subject from nios in 2019 . So my ques. is what should i write in class 12th roll no. section in neet form ?

Yash Dev Student Expert 12th Dec, 2019

Hello student in this case guess you should give your class 12 Roll number of nios in which you passed biology subjects. Neet eligibility says Candidates need to pass class 12 with physics chemistry and biology. So at the time of admission you might face difficulties if you provide them cbse roll no in which there's no biology.

Feel free to comment if you have any doubt

Good luck

What should I do if I fail in class 11th?

_Abhishek_Vatsya Student Expert 7th Dec, 2019

Hey!There

11th results doesn't matter soo much.If you have interest in that stream then you can ignore 11th results overall stream matters.Do focus in main papers like in PCM/PCB in Science stream.Aslo,you might have interest in other stream then you can can change stream as it is perfect time for that.Don't think about 2nd option Soo much if you chosen stream  as per your interest..

Ask if any query.

Sir, I failed in MATHS in Class 12 board exams 2019. Now, Ive registered myself as a failure candidate to reappear in all subjects in 2020. So my question is, will i have to give practicals and submit projects of all subjects like previous year?

Piyeta Ghosh 2nd Dec, 2019

Hello aspirant

Now that you have registered yourself to appear for all the subjects , which means you are repeating 12th standard again. The board views you as a normal 12th grade student.

Hence, you have to appear for all the exams (internals and externals), practicals, assignments etc.

Hence, the answer is YES.

HOPE THAT HELPS

If a medical student with 70% in cbse class 12th board can be able to apply BITSAT form 2020?

Malini S N 2nd Dec, 2019

Hello!!

Candidates must have passed their class 12 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects and candidate who have opted for biology must have 75% aggregate score in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.So,if you have physics,chemistry and maths as compulsory subjects,then you will be eligible.Candidates must also score 60% individually in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

All the best!!
