An improvement exam is one that is given by people who have cleared their main exam but feel that they are dissatisfied with their result. This is generally given as an option for students in the 10th and 12th standards by the CBSE board.
The CBSE board will be conducting this year’s improvement exam in the months of August to September. The date for the exam will probably be announced at the beginning of August. The last date to apply for it will probably be at the end of the second week of August itself, with the exam commencing on the 16th of August in the same year (as per the schedule now).
According to the latest information from the CBSE board, 4 types of students can apply for the improvement exam:
- Students who are not satisfied with their grades in the current exam can apply for the improvement exam. However, it must be noted that the marks of the latter exam will be considered as the final ones.
- Students taking the compartment exams can apply if their results have not been declared because of the non-availability of their assessment details are allowed to apply.
- Students who have failed in a single exam in the exam conducted previously can appear for this exam.
- Students who want to improve their score in just one subject in their compartment exams can apply for this exam.
According to the revised rules by the CBSE board, students can appear for the improvement exam in the same year as their regular exam. This helps them avoid waiting an entire year to appear for it, hence saving them a lot of precious time and energy. The only downside to this is that students who are a bit on the weaker side might find the schedule a bit tight. That being said, most students just want to get their exams over with.
