After failing in 12th: NIOS and Diploma courses could be of help

Okay, let us come straight to the serious question- what to do after failing in 12th standard? Many students face this tough situation. Normally, they wait for the re-examination and apply for it, write the exam again and expect to pass in it. But there are other options as well, let me mention it in the article.


12th Science students may pursue Diploma course

If a Science stream student fails in 12th standard examination, he/she may make use of the 10th standard marksheet and apply for Diploma course using it. After pursuing Diploma, one may finish it up and go for BE/B Tech too, depending on performance and marks.


Students may also go for Open Schooling option

Instead of sitting and wasting time, students may also make use of NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) and pursue school courses right from their home. The advantage of Open Schooling is that the timings are quite flexible.


One may do 12th standard studies from home, prepare for the exams and appear for it. Also, the result will help you apply for Professional Courses after passing the course.


At the same time, while pursuing 12th standard studies from NIOS, one may also go for ITI, Certificate as well as Diploma courses too, pursuing two or more courses at the same time.


This is a good option, for one can complete 12th standard schooling at one’s own flexible timings and at the same time, make use of time, pursue other useful courses and acquire some skills. Remember to pursue courses that’ll instill skills, which will help get jobs!
