ICSE, ISC improvement and compartment exams to start on August 16
The ICSE (Class X) and ISC (Class XII) improvement and compartment examinations for this year will start on August 16, the ICSE council announced on Friday evening.
“The ICSE & ISC Year 2021 Improvement and Compartment Examinations will commence from 16th August 2021,” Gerry Arathoon, the chief executive and secretary of the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, said in a statement.
Students can register for the improvement and compartment exams till August 4. The exams will be held offline.
Students who have relocated to other cities during the pandemic can seek a transfer of centre later to write the exam at a venue closer home. The requests for transfer of centres have to be forwarded to the council through the CAREERS portal.
“The module for submitting the requests... will be activated after the candidates have been registered for the said examinations,” said Arathoon.
The candidates who have sent a dispute resolution request can apply for the improvement exam. The dispute resolution is “only for the correction of calculation errors”.
“The candidates who are not satisfied with the Result awarded to them using the CISCE’S Scheme for ICSE & ISC Year 2021 Examinations, may get themselves registered for the ICSE/ISC Year 2021 Improvement Examination,” said Arathoon.
Unsuccessful students are allowed to appear in the compartment exams provided they meet certain criteria of the council.
The council had cancelled the ICSE and ISC exams because of the pandemic.
