Will we get jobs after persuating Nios ?

Arya 12th Jan, 2020

Hi Mercy,

The National Institute of Open Schooling is just another educational board. For jobs, you will have to join a college and do your Graduation. Once that is done, your education board will not matter, only your marks will. So, you can definitely go for NIOS.

I had paid the registration charges & made the payment for the admission in NIOS in 2019.admission is confirmed. do i have to appear for exam in 2020 or my registration is for 5 years. pls advise whetger i can appear for exam in 2021 by paying the exam fees for 2021 even though i have regd in 2019

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.
