CBSE Improvement exam – Fees,Dates,Rules,Application form

CBSE Improvement exam – Fees,Dates,Rules,Application form – The CBSE Improvement exam is for all you students wish to improve your marks in one or more subjects of their board exam.You may appear through your own school as fresh candidates or as private candidates on your own.This improvement of performance exam is only for students who got E grade or higher in their marksheet and not for those who have failed, for which the compartment will have to be given separately. Luckily when i gave my boards i had to give improvement in only 1 subject.The best part about improvement is that you can continue with your career or college each for your next year and you are NOT declared as failed which is the worst.

Suppose in the Improvement exam you score less than your original marks,then the original marks or higher of the two will be taken only,so you can only IMPROVE and not get worse!

In 12th boards this is called Improvement of Performance whereas in 10th board it is called as Upgrading of Performance

I gave my application in many colleges using this marksheet,but remember to keep your best college option for last, and in that college/university give only the improvement marksheet.Last thing guys, remember you got one shot at this,so make it work!

 

Important points to remember before reading further:
