  • There are many institutes offering 12th class by correspondence course. As you are near Bangalore you can try some institutes in Bangalore. IGNOU is offering 12th correspondence course. You can search the website of IGNOU.
    You can even appear PUC as a private candidate or you can write open university entrance test and directly get admitted to graduation.

    always confident

  • NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) is the agency for correspondence course for class 12.

    You have to go to the NIOS site and register online for admission and you will get all the details of fee structure and examination schedule for the exam of class 12. You have to choose 1 or 2 subjects from Group A (languages) and 3 or 4 subjects (science and arts subjects) from Group B, C, D, E and F. You can see the details of these group in the NIOS site.

    The eligibility is 15 years of age and pass in class 10.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

  • You have chosen the EBACS (Economics, Business Studies, Accountancy, Computer science) in 11th and would like to take 12th standard in a correspondence method. 12th standarad is a very crucial step in the education pathway of a student. A good college, good marks etc help you to get enrollment into a good good UG course. A correspondence option at this stage would not be a wise decision. After 12th for you, you would be looking at B.Com, BBA, ICWA etc. Sometime back private PUC students face rejection for enrolment for UG courses in Bangalore university, you can please check that also.(

  • It is always better to have a regular school certificate for class 12 completion but as you have narrated your story and you are not getting admission anywhere then instead of wasting a year it is better to complete class 12 by correspondence course.

    The best option is doing this from NIOS (The National Institute of Open Schooling). NIOS is a national board of education under the Govt of India and it administers examinations in correspondence mode for Secondary and Senior Secondary examinations similar to the CBSE.

    You can select the appropriate subjects from the options available in NIOS syllabus and appear in the next examination as per their schedule. You will get an opportunity to appear in the next NIOS exam sometime in March/ April 2020.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Class twelve course is crucial in many ways and should be done in the regular classes because of following reasons -
    1) EBCS as described by you in short means Economics, Bussiness - study and Computer - science and each subject being complex in nature, you need to have a personnel guidance of a regular and competent teacher able to sort out your confusion in your day - to - day studies.
    This will help you to develop a strong base in these subjects when chosen in future.
    2) The combinations as suggested by you may not match with the cirriculam of IGNOU and moreover in the event of doubt clarification, you need to seek some other outlets meaning thereby you need to go through the tutions from some experienced teacher to strengthen your basics.
    Hence it would be better to choose a regular course from a recognised school for the better concept.
    If at all, you are interested for NIOS ie National Institute of Open Schooling, you can register yourself in the site and choose the subjects as per your wish, however you need to select two language papers including English being essential and then opt for three subjects. You need to complete 15 years of age on 31 st July of the current session.
    The courses of IGNOU can be selected comprising two year course starting from class eleven and ends at the full coverage of class twelve. The course - structure is definitely of high standard and you will receive quality subject materials from IGNOU for your preparation.
    Recognition of the course is at par with the certificates provided by any recognised Board of Higher Secondary Schools.
