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.


which board should i select while applying for jee or other entrance exam , as i have completed my 12th from state board and later improved my marks through nios on-demand exam. (i am uploading my nios marksheet but my migration certificate and TC are from state board)

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019
If you were fail in your state board examination then you gave NIOS exam so you will have to you mention your board NIOS but if you were not fail and then you gave NIOS exam for the improvement of your marks  so you can mention your any one of the board it maybe state board or NIOS board but if you want NUT's is and IIIT and you got less than required percentage in your state board and then after NIOS you got 75 and more percentage so you will have to mention your board NIOS if you don't have migration certificate of NIOS then you will have to take it from the the office of NIOS in Noida which you can have either by writing an application or direct going to this office.
Best of luck.

Will questions from TMA chapters be asked on nios on-demand exam (senior secondary) for physics, chemistry, maths subjects ?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019


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!
