The students usually study and take exams under the supervision of same board each year. The practice could be fine but just keep in mind that you have the option of changing your educational board after submitting an NOC to your desired board. You should be aware of the fact that this decision can have its own consequences. Some boards are easier to pass the exams and others are harder, comparatively.

The students can choose one of three available groups for the intermediate class which are science, commerce and arts.


Science subjects are hard to study and harder to pass if you do not do it with passion and interest. The science subjects offer three further groups to opt one. These groups include pre-engineering, pre-medical and intermediate with computer science (ICS).
