About the Board

Established in November 1989 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) conducts admissions around the year. NIOS is an educational organisation that provides a number of General and Academic, Vocational, Life Enrichment and community oriented courses at Secondary and Senior Secondary level. The NIOS admission imparts education through Open and Distance Learning Mode. NIOS also conducts examinations for grant of certificates upto pre-degree level at par with other National Boards viz. the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE). Contrary to regular schooling which is a traditional method of face-to-face learning in a formal class room situation with a rigid time-table, admission to NIOS provides a flexible method of self-learning and its evaluation according to a learner’s personal schedule. NIOS admission helps learners who cannot avail the facility of formal schooling to continue their studies while working in some gainful employment. The objective of NIOS admission is to provide universal, regular and holistic education in remote as well as rural areas.

NIOS has a vast network of five Departments, Regional Centres and Study Centres in India and abroad. It has a current enrolment of 2.71 million students at Secondary, Senior Secondary and Vocational levels which makes it the largest open schooling system in the world.

Why NIOS Admission?

Children who do not get access to formal schooling due to economic, social or geographical conditions can make use of the benefits provided by NIOS admission. NIOS also lets those students continue with their education who wish to continue their study while working in some gainful employment.

Many students also go for admission to NIOS for improving their Class 10 and Class 12 grades which are very crucial for wanting to appear for JEE, DU and other competitive entrance exams. As NIOS is accepted as a board equivalent to CBSE and CISCE, students choose NIOS Admission to pursue their Secondary and Senior Secondary education so as to attain a higher percentage.

 

NIOS Admission 2019 - Programmes offered

The Board offers the following programmes or courses to learners who opt for admission to NIOS and who have the zeal to pursue and continue their education:

 

A. Open Basic Education (OBE)

This elementary education programme provides basic education to the learners and is equivalent to any other regular affiliated formal schools. The OBE programme is provided at three levels -

(i) OBE 'A' Level Course, which is equivalent to Class III

(ii) OBE 'B' Level Course, which is equivalent to Class V

(iii) OBE 'C' Level Course, which is equivalent to Class VIII

 

B. Academic Courses

Learners who go for NIOS admission are offered academic courses at two levels-

(i) Secondary Course, which is equivalent to Class X

(ii) Senior Secondary Course, which is equivalent to Class XII

 

C. Vocational Education Courses

Along with the basic and secondary courses mentioned above, admission to NIOS offers various vocational educational courses. The objective of the vocational courses offered by NIOS is to teach students about target skills in various fields such as Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, Business, Accounts and Commerce, IT and Technology, Engineering and Architecture, Health and Paramedical Science, Home Science, Hospitality Management, Teacher Training and more. There are more than hundred types of vocational courses which can be selected by learners as per their interests.

NIOS Admission 2019 – Online Admission Process

Admission to NIOS, also conducted at the Secondary and the Senior Secondary level, is done by helping learners register themselves with the Board. Learners can choose any one option from the three listed below to get themselves registered:

  • Learners can go for NIOS admission by registering themselves online by visiting the official website.

  • Learners can visit their nearest Study Centre/Facilitation Centre to get themselves registered online for admission to NIOS.

  • They may visit their Regional Centres and take help for online registration.

  • Learners can also use the services of Common Services Centres of Government of India for online registration throughout the Country.

Once registered, the NIOS admission will be valid for a period of 5 years.

NIOS Admission 2019 – Learning with NIOS

Students who take admission in NIOS are self-learners. A maximum of 30 Personal Contact Programme (PCP) sessions are organized per subject for theory and five additional practical sessions for a subject having practical work, on a face to face basis, generally on weekends and holidays. PCP is a structured remedial session for learning that facilitates learners in solving their subject related problems which they face during study. Each PCP session of NIOS admission will be of 40 minutes duration. It is mandatory for every learner to attend a minimum of 10 PCPs out of 30. These sessions are conducted by the study centres after admission to NIOS. Learners also need to go through the Tutor Marked Assignments (TMA) which are similar to open book assignments. These assignments help learners to ensure their progress and revision in studies. Every learner who chooses NIOS admission must note that it is important to submit at least one assignment per subject.

 

NIOS Admission offers another facility to its learners wherein those who have cleared at least one subject in another board of education at Secondary or Senior Secondary level but have not qualified in the course, can avail facility of Transfer of Credit (TOC) whereby marks of any two subjects are transferred from the parent Board to NIOS for certification.
