The Council of Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Sunday extended the last date for students to register for the improvement and compartment examination of ISC 12th and ICSE 10th.

The compartment exam for both class 12th and class 10th will start from August 16, 2021. Interested students can register on the council’s official website, The exams will be held offline.

The improvement exams are for students who were not satisfied with the marks they were awarded in the ICSE 2021 or ISC 2021 exam. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the marks were awarded using an alternative scheme for evaluation. This was done as the exams could not be held this year.
