  4. Sir,
    I've completed my +2 this year (2018-March) and have passed all subjects with above D+ grade. Due to some reasons I was not able to register for Improvement Exams 2018 which is going to be held few days after. I want to improve my score.

    Will I be able to register for +2 Improvement Exams 2019 if I've already passed all of the subjects ? If then how many subjects will I be able to appear in 2019 ?

    Thanks In Advance.
    And waiting for the fastest reply.
