Are subjects already passed from any other Board allowed to be moved or shifted to NIOS?
NIOS BOARD is very considerate about the students and keeps on coming up with innovative ideas as to how they can help the grieved student by bringing new rules to comfort them and decrease their anxiety and work pressure.
The TOC (Transfer Of Credit) is one such rule of the NIOS board. In NIOS board the student can get credit transferred to a maximum of four subjects from NIOS (Old students/Ex students) and to a maximum of two subjects for other recognized board like CBSE/CISCE/UP board and all other government recognized and approved boards. Twenty-six national and state boards including the CBSE and CISCE have agreed and entered into MOUs (memorandum of understanding) with NIOS for transfer of credit.
The basic concept of TOC is to reduce the burden on student from restudying the same subject again in which he/she has scored good marks. This reduces the frustration and anxiety of the student to a great extent and helps the student Psychologicallyby reducing the subjects in which he/she has to reappear for board exams.
According to the original proposal only those students who have passed the Class VIII exam and have completed 15 years of age were to be admitted to the open school so that students are not tempted to leave regular schooling to answer the public exams from the state open school.

You can benefit from the facility of Transfer of Credit (TOC) to a maximum of two subjects passed from the said Boards provided these subjects make a space for being mentioned in NIOS scheme of studies. Transfer of subjects is given as per the rules and conditions. The learners who wish to join formal school board in class XI after passing NIOS exam of class X may take these subjects combinations (in 5 or 6 subjects) which are considered to be taken in class XI by formal school Board, without the preconception to the exactness of NIOS.
NIOS's flexibility in conduct of examinations allows students to apply for three or more subjects at a given time. The institute has introduced a transfer of credit system which allows marks scored by a learner in up to two subjects at previous exams of NIOS or other boards to be taken into account for declaring the candidate to have passed the exam. Twenty-six national and state boards including the CBSE, STATE BOARDS and CISCE have entered into Mous with NIOS for TOC.
