    Is there any 2 year diploma which is equal to 12th class qualification?


    Looking for a diploma certification program which would be equivalent to 12 class qualification? Find out from this Ask Expert page whether such a diploma program is available in India.

    I want to know if there is any two year diploma which would be considered equal to 12th class certification. Can any student apply after that for exam like IIT, NIT, AIPMT?

    No, Diploma courses can't be compared with X+II level. Diploma is a separate branch of study in respect of technical education. A person can take admission in a Diploma course after completion of Xth standard examiniation. The duration of Diploma courses is three years. After completion of Diploma course in Engineering, a student can take admission in second year of Bachelor of Engineering course, in the same branch of study.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    Diploma is a 3 years course and cannot be equivalent to 12th. You can take diploma course on basis of your 10th and later you can join engineering as a lateral entry I.e., you can join engineering directly in the second year.

    There is no such diploma consisting of two year duration and passing out such diploma would make one entitled to a pass equivalent to class 12. Presently, there is a provision of taking admission of three years diploma course in different streams such as Electrical, Civil, Mechanical, Computers etc after passing out of class 10 from a recognised Board. Such certification is not meant passing equivalent to class 12 of any recognised Board.
    These diplomas pave the ways for opening of the jobs in the technical areas and on the strength of this diploma, they enjoy promotion in their fields and even they achieve the status of executives with the passage of time.
    The other option before such aspirants is to take admission in Engineerinng - degree course in the second year of four years course in the streams which they had already taken in the diploma - course. Admission would be made available as per the norms of the admission - procedure to be finalised by the admission - commitee.

    As answered by others there is no diploma course equivalent to 12th standard. But there is a diploma course that can be pursued after completion of 10th standard.

    If you are not interested in studying 11th and 12th then you can take admission in any polytechnic college or university and pursue the stream of your choice. You can also opt for higher degree if necessary after completion of your course. This course is unique for the duration of time it takes to obtain the diploma certificate. Within 2-3 years of time span this course can be completed. This course is mostly recognized for technical degrees.

    This is the best way to get diploma without studying 11th and 12th standard.
