Sir, my son failed in Computer Science (written exam) in CBSE' 2012 Science with PCM. He did not opt for compartment exams. Now he wants to re- appear as a private candidate in CBSE' 2013 exams with 'Engg. Drawing' as an optional subject. Is it possible? I am not clear because I read your reply to an approximately similar question of a candidate, in which you have told that-
1. "Private candidates shall not be allowed to offer for their examination, a subject (even if the subject is recognised for the examination) which is not being taught in an affiliated School."
2. "Private candidates shall not be allowed to offer such subjects for the examination which involve practical work except in the case of candidates who had failed earlier and who had put in a regular course of study at an institution affiliated to the Board in the previous academic year. However notwithstanding this condition, female candidates may offer Home Science with practical."
Thanks & Regards.
