What Is The Compartment Exam?
Students who failed in class 12 or class 10 can appear for the compartment examination which will take place between July and August. However, the eligibility criteria for taking the compartment examination is different for class 10 and class 12.
Eligibility Criteria For Compartment Exam
Class 12 students who failed in one subject are allowed to take the compartment examination. Candidates whose names are listed cannot apply for more than one subject. Students will be provided with three chances to clear their compartment exam. The first one will be in July/August, the second and third will be in the months of March and July, respectively. However, students who failed in two or more subjects have to appear for the exams held in the next year.
While coming to class 10, students whose names are placed in the 'Improvement of Performance' list can appear for the examination. Only the ones who have passed their board exam but are not satisfied with their marks are eligible to apply for the improvement exam. However, if a student has failed in the exam and is not in the list of those eligible for the improvement exam, they cannot appear for the exam.
