How is NIOS different from other Boards?

The National Institute of open Schooling was brought into existence by the ministry of Human Resource and Development, Government of India in November 1989.It was passed through a resolution (No. F.5-24/90 Sch.3 dated 14 September 1990 published in the Gazette of India on 20 October 1990). The NIOS being a recognized board is in no way inferior to any other board such as ICSE or CBSE board. NIOS is equally recognized by all institutes and universities for admission.  

Therefore after completing your 12th (N.I.O.S Passed) students can seek admission in all India as well as state Medical, Engineering and other various competitive exams like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, PMT (NEET) and also other professional and acedemic courses in all universities, technical institutes across the country and abroad. They can also seek the government jobs whether central / state government. However other eligibility criteria like age, particular subjects, qualifying percentage and other criteria must be fulfilled by the students. SSCoaching provides the information about NIOS Board(National Institute of Open Schooling) as well as coaching classes, syllabus and tuition for 10th (secondary) & 12th (senior secondary) students of NIOS Board by renowned and highly qualified faculty and staff. SS Coaching also guides to fill the form for online admissions in all streams of NIOS Board for 10th and 12th students. 


It is considered a boon for those students who could not complete their schooling as they could  not attend regular classes due to some reason  or if they failed in the board exams and do not want to study in the same class with their juniors. It also gives the opportunity to the students to appear in the same year in which they have failed there board exams from any other board to save time and year. It helps in increasing the literacy of the girls who are from conservative background and cannot go to a regular school for studying or if she got married and wasn’t able to complete her schooling. NIOS is a boon for such girls to complete their schooling and can even graduate from Open University like IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University).


The NIOS has been in existence for over 25 years now. It provides a national level board examination for higher secondary and secondary. The higher or senior secondary level is equivalent to the other 12 board examinations. The Association of Indian Universities (AIU) has also intimated the Registrars of all Indian Universities vide their Notification No. E V/11 (354)91/dated 25.7.1991  of its decision to grant equivalence to N.I.O.S. courses with those of other examinations of recognized Boards for purposes of admission to higher courses of study at Indian Universities.
