Improvement Examination Rules for CBSE class-12

Written by myCBSEguide

CBSE Rules for Improvement of Performance

Improvement Examination Rules for class 12 students are given in this article. CBSE has provided rules of improvement examination for class 12. This gives you another chance to enhance your result if you can’t do it in the first attempt. You can see the procedure given below. For any queries just visit the official website of CBSE or myCBSEguide.com.

You may be thinking of the syllabus of improvement exam which is the main problem. We are trying to resolve this issue by providing you the study materials through our platform. Kindly update with us.

A candidate who has passed an examination of the Board may reappear for improvement of performance in one or more subjects in the succeeding year only; however, a candidate who has passed an examination of the Board under Vocational Scheme may reappear for improvement of performance in the main examination in the succeeding year or the following year provided they have not pursued higher studies in the mean time. They will appear as private candidates. Those reappearing for the whole examination may, however, appear as regular candidates also if admitted by the school as regular students. The candidate (s) appearing for improvement of performance can appear in the subject (s) only in which they have appeared for the Examination.
For subjects involving practical work, in case the candidate has passed in practical at the main examination, she shall be allowed to appear in theory part only and marks in practical obtained at the main examination shall be carried forward and accounted for. In case a candidate has failed in practical, she shall have to appear in theory and practical both irrespective of the fact that she has already cleared the theory examination.
Candidates who appear for Improvement of Performance will be issued only Statement of Marks reflecting the marks of the improvement examination.
A candidate appearing for Improvement of Performance in one or more subjects cannot appear for additional subject simultaneously.
Candidates appearing in six subjects at the Senior School Certificate Examination having been declared ‘Pass’ by virtue of securing pass marks in five subjects as per Rule 2.2 (iv) may appear in the failing main subject at the Compartment Examination to be held in July the same year provided she had appeared at the Examination held in March in the said subject.

  • Hllo sir
    I hv passed my 12 class in 2013 ….. But this time i hv reappeared for improvement exam in two subjects maths nd physics in maths i hv improved my score but in physics i got less than last time so what will hppen now …. Means both subjects are included or the only in which i hv improved my marks….

  • Sir/Madam,

    I appeared for CBSE Board Examinations in 2014. I scored well in English, Biology, and Physics. But my marks in Chemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science is too low. I am thinking of giving the CBSE Improvement Exam, 2015 along with prepararing for my competitive exams.

    My question to you is, If I fill in the form for all of the five subjects and I do not get better marks in English, Biology and especially Physics, would the new CBSE Mark Sheet reflect the better marks of the previous attempt? Or would it reflect the marks I scored in the improvement exam whether be it good or bad?

    If it is the case that the new mark sheet will reflect whatever I get in the improvement exam, should I fill up the form for Biology, English and Physics? Also, what are the disadvantages of having two CBSE marksheets?

    I am very confused and need your guidance so that I could do well in my future.

    Thanking You,

    Rajarshi Sanyal

  • Thank you,
    Sir I am presently studying in class 12 and I would be giving boards in march… but if I score below 80% and then going for a drop and giving improvment exam . And in that I get good marks then I would be showing board exam result or board improvement exam result to colleges for admissions… and would improvement exam result have a bad effect on colleges admissions … ie. Colleges would think that he has given improvement exam soo he’s not a good student…
