      Hello Ravi,
      Greetings from Eduncle!
      You can appear in CBSE Class 12 Improvement Exam only if you pass the exam but obtain less satisfactory marks in it and on the other hand, compartment exam is for those who fail in the class 12 exams. Such students can boost their scores through both exams.

    I appeared for the CBSE examinations this year and I am not satisfied with the way i have done it .
    Will i be around to appear for the improvement exams this later year itself
    I doubt whether i would be able to get the threshold marks required for jee mains and bitsat this year. So I’m planning to appear for them the next year too. If i score better marks in the improvement exams will that be considered. I also read that for the jee main if one is appearing for the improvement exams one needs to appear for all 5 subs ? Is that true? What happens if i only appear for PCM?
    Please clear my query

    I have given my CBSE class 12 exam in this year, 2018 only. If I get passed but don’t get satisfactory marks in any subject, will I appear in the improvement exam this year, 2018 or next year, 2019? I’ve seen that the eligibility criteria given above on “eduncle” is written for 2017 and 2016 passed but not 2018 passed. I’m confused a bit now.
