NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling)

In what is constituted to be another FIRST for your school, we are pleased to inform your good self that Manchester International School has now been affiliated to NIOS (National Institute for Open Schooling)!

Our school has endeavoured to establish the open schooling facility to the students and has thereby ensured that our students make the fullest usefulness avail of this facility in the future. 

The NIOS Board is duly constituted under the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India. This is the third largest board following the CBSE and the ICSE and has an equal leverage to that of CBSE and ICSE. With 2.2 million enrolments, NIOS becomes the world’s largest open schooling system.

NIOS conducts its main exam twice every year, hence becoming a boon for students of other recognized boards within three months of their results being published. It also gives a possibility of carrying forwards the marks of the passed subjects from the failed mark sheets of students. The main advantage of passing Secondary (Grade 10) or Senior Secondary (Grade 12) through NIOS, instead of appearing from the same board, is that the student will be saving a year in his education.   

Another examination schedule under Stream 4 & 5 under the NIOS enables students to reappear for their examinations. Under these streams, examinations are conducted every month, except in the months of Oct – Nov and Mar –April, thereby conducting examinations 8 times in a year, excluding the two main examinations.

Students who pass out of NIOS are qualified to seek admissions in All India as well as State Medical, Engineering and various competitive examinations such as IIT, JEE, NEET and other professional courses on all the universities across the country and many prominent universities overseas, as well. They are also authorized to seek Government jobs, be it state government or central government.

We herein appeal to our parents to make optimal utilization of NIOS, which will remain a boon for our young champions.
