I m also gonna give jee mains of April and April exams of NIOS is there any possibility of clashing of dates of both exams,if yes what should I do

Siddhi Shenoy 11th Jan, 2020

Hello Yash,

The JEE mains April session dates have already been released. It will be held from 3rd April to 9th April 2020. However, the NIOS 2020 exam dates have not been released yet. It is expected to be announced in the month of February 2020. So, I would suggest you to keep yourself updated with the announcement online. Until then, focus on your first preference exam among these two. Also, take a note of when you have your shift for JEE mains and the date of NIOS exam. If they clash, I would suggest you to choose either one of them. But, let's hope for the best.

Good luck!

I got Passed in class X, how and when to pay fees for Sr Secondary Exam

Dinesh Goyal 10th Jan, 2020

Hii,

Today i.e. January 10, 2020 is the last date to submit NIOS exam fees for April 2020 exams.

As per general rule to appear for class 12 exams, a student must have a gap of one year after 10th class. If want to apply for 12th immediately after passing 10th then you will not be allowed to appear for all subjects in one attempt.

All the best!!!

Im in class 11th commerce and CBSE registration is done but I want to change my stream. Should I do NIOS?

NAVNEET PANDEY 9th Jan, 2020

Hello antra

If you are in 11th class you can change your stream even after registration, you can talk to your principal, write an application letter for changing stream with your parents sign on it and submit it to your school administration, as 11th class is independent of 12th class, so you don't face any problem.

Only choose national institute of open schooling if your school doesn't change the stream but that's very rare case.

I hope it helps.
