Reportedly students who have appeared for their class XII in 2012 and wish to improve upon their performance can re-appear for their boards in 2013. The second chance is being given in view of the fact that a student’s performance in the board exams will now play a role in determining entry to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other engineering colleges. If a candidate wants to improve his performance in Board’s Exam, he/she can do so but for consideration of that year’s result he/she has to appear in all the subjects and not the partial.
