    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.
