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.
Follow the syllabus. try to read the chapters mentioned there. Almost all the chapters are included in the exam syllabus so you have to read all the chapters.
Don't leave any question that it will come or not. If you have any doubt just follow the official board provided syllabus. Get your doubts cleared from there.
don't listen to other that it won't come so don't study. If it will come then you are the one who will lose the marks. For Clarity and actual information refer to the board provided syllabus only.
Hope it helps!
