Procedure for Change of Subject/Additional Subject

During the admission period of five years, you can change one or more subject(s), provided the total number of subjects does not exceed seven. However, such a change is permissible within four years of your registration, so that you can appear in Public Examinations within the validity period of admission. No change/addition of subjects will be allowed for the first forth coming examination. Subject(s) passed cannot be changed.

For change of subject/additional subject, you are required to submit your application on plain paper to the concerned Regional Centre of the NIOS through your AI along with the prescribed fee as given below for all categories of learners:

  • For Secondary Course Rs. 600/- per subject
  • For Senior Secondary Course Rs. 600/- per subject

The fee should be paid through a Bank Draft drawn in favour of "Secretary, NIOS" payable at the concerned Regional Centre. No application in this regard will be accepted in the NIOS Headquarters at Delhi. The concerned Regional Centre of NIOS will confirm such change or addition of subjects at your mailing address under intimation to your AI.

Do keep in contact with your AI and ensure that the desired changes have been made.
