Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 30th Nov, 2019

Your NIOS admission is valid for 5 years. Once it is registered, the validity of 5 years is for both secondary and senior secondary. You can attempt to appear for the exams in these 5 years as many as 9 times. So you can appear for the exams any time within 5 years from the time you have registered with NIOS. At that point in time, you only will have to pay the exam fees.
