Ayshi Ghosh Student Expert 9th Sep, 2019

Hello aspirant,

The roll number od ICSE 10fh Board exam is your Unique ID, the ID with which you have checked your class 10 board results. Yes, it is required while feeling the form of any competitive examination. So, it is required while filling the JEE forma too.


Sir I have already register for my ICSE board examinations but I want to change my name for some reasons.

Ayshi Ghosh Student Expert 24th Aug, 2019

Hello aspirant,

You need to go to the court and get a affidavit done to change your name. As for the board certificate, it is suggested that you change it before appearing for the boards and not after. You need to contact your school for it, and it will be done but fine will be charged. 

To change the name in your certificate after ICSE, it will be a lengthy process and you will need a good advocate. If you don't change your name in the certificate, it will create problems at places where the class 10 boards certificate is needed. All the best!

Hello dear parent,
According to KVPY eligibility criteria 2019, Candidates must secure minimum 75% marks in class 10 while SC/ST/PwD candidates have scored 65% in aggregate of all Science subjects and Mathematics.
According to the marks mentioned by you your daughter's aggregate percentage in science and maths is 58.5 % which is less than 75% , so your daughter is not eligible for kvpy.
Good luck
