If you have failed in the 10th & 12th class from NIOS OPEN SCHOOL / CBSE/ STATE BOARD. So you can apply for nios admission. if you are 10th or 12th class failed students or have an original mark sheet of the failed & compartment you are eligible to take TOC in the nios board.

Let’s discuss what TOC (Transfer of Credit) means in the context of NIOS OPEN SCHOOL. TOC, which stands for Transfer of Credit, is a facility available only to students who have not failed in all subjects in their 10th and 12th classes from any recognized board. Students can opt for TOC for subjects they have passed in their previous board results. TOC can be chosen when the same subject is mentioned in the NIOS subject scheme. Before applying for the TOC facility, students must check the NIOS subject TOC scheme and the list of board names accepted by NIOS for TOC.

This feature is provided by NIOS OPEN SCHOOL BOARD, allowing you to transfer your marks. If you have not failed or received poor marks in any recognized board’s exams, you can seek admission to NIOS BOARD and utilize the TOC facility. TOC is available for up to two pass subjects.

Now, suppose you have failed in one or two or three subjects in your 10th or 12th exams. In this case, the marks of one or two subjects will be transferred to your NIOS mark sheet. If you pass all in allover results in your previous board, you won’t be eligible for the TOC facility for two subjects. Instead, you can apply for an improvement exam.

The benefit of this facility will not be available to the students who have failed in 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or 11th class or crossed five years after failing in the 10th or 12th class.

A learner should seek Transfer of Credits (TOC) at the time of admission in the subjects which are included in OPEN SCHOOL scheme of studies.

The facility of TOC will be permissible under the following conditions:

  • The learner will have the option to get the credit transferred up to a maximum of two subjects from the parent Board, provided these subjects are passed with at least 33% marks in the last five years (i.e., passed during 2020 or later).
