The National Institute of Open Schooling, more commonly known as NIOS, was set up in 1989 to offer open and distance learning to students who are unable to undergo training through the formal educational system. The Board allows the flexibility of choosing subjects of choice for students during the course of study and it also provides each student with nine chances to attempt the examination over a span of five years to clear the examination successfully. NIOS has partnered with agencies across the country to set up learning centres for its students.
