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.

Malini S N 2nd Dec, 2019


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.
