Be sharp and fast with eye on the exam.

Don’t waste a minute.

Be practical during this period, topics/ concepts that you have failed to grasp. Leave it.

During this period, it is very much important what NOT to study. Accept it and leave it.

Stage 4: 3 hours Exam

Before the exam, take a deep sleep. Good sleep is very important.

NIOS Students: Feel Proud

No educational institute gives you guarantee of your life and of your career

It is generally seen students of any open or distance education carries a feeling that their education is not at par with formal education system. They feel depressed, isolated and hence do not concentrate on studies. But they forget that the Board under which they are carrying out their studies is recognised by the Government of India and its certificates and degrees are recognised.

With respect to jobs and ones life. Students should remember that no educational institute or university gives you the guarantee of your life and your career. Success in ones life and career is wholly depends on ones hardwork. Only hardwork counts in life.
