Are NIOS class 12th students allowed to give JEE?

Sharon Rose Student Expert 3rd Dec, 2019
Hello Antraa,
Yes, NIOS certificate is valid and recognised across India as well as abroad. So you can apply for JEE main without any problem. You must fulfill the eligibility criteria before applying and the eligibility criteria is that a candidate must have passed 10+2 with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. To get admission in NITs/IITs/GFTIs you need to secure atleast 75% marks in 10+2 in case if you belong to general category and 65% marks in case if you belong to SC/ST category. And you must have studied atleast 5 subjects and give examination through NIOS.

If I do PCB through NIOS only in 12th and not in 11th, will I be eligible for NEET?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 1st Dec, 2019

Dear aspirant,

the eligibility required for NEET examination is a minimum 50% marks in your physics chemistry and biology in your plus two. Since you have done 12th from NIOS with the required subjects you are eligible if you have scored a minimum of 50% marks in these three subjects. Moreover the minimum age for appearing for the exam is 17 years. You must also fulfill the age criteria.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

Arpita Mandal 30th Nov, 2019

NIOS student can apply upsc exam

Aditya kumar Student Expert 26th Nov, 2019
Hello there!


  • Yes dear ,open board students like NIOS are eligible for upsc as nios is a recognized board but nios provides education only upto class 12th and it doesn't offer graduation, so if you have pursued your 10+ 2 education from nios then there's no problem but you need to complete your graduation first in order to be eligible for UPSC

  • And even if you pursue your graduation from a recognized open universities like Indira Gandhi National Open University known as IGNOU, you will be eligible for UPSC .

  • Actually to be eligible for UPSC , you just need to be a graduate from a recognized university, also there's no minimum percentage requirement in graduation to be eligible, and you must be at least 21 years old , while the upper age limit is 32 years .
