For Online Admissions under Stream 2 ,3 and 4
Streams 2,3 and 4 of online admission have been specifically designed for the learners who want to appear in NIOS examinations at the earliest available opportunity. Therefore, due to shortage of time, NIOS will not be able to provide the following to the learners seeking admission under Stream 2 and 3:
Study Material,
Personal Contact Programmes (PCPs) and
Tutor Marked Assignments (TMAs)
Accordingly, NIOS is not charging any money for study material, for conducting PCP and TMA for these two streams of learners for the entire period of enrolment of five years. However, the learners can access the study material by downloading it from the NIOS website ( www.nos.org or www.nios.ac.in ) or on payment basis (as per Table-6A) from the Regional Centres/NIOS Headquarters.
Since these learners have chosen to appear in NIOS examinations at a short notice, they are required to pay examination fee compulsorily at the time of admission and will have to fill up the examination form/information at the time of seeking On-line Admission.
The learner, at the time of admission, has to mention all subjects chosen by him/her for appearing in Examinations in the Admission Form including TOC, if needed.

All other facilities like 9 chances to appear in examinations, change of subjects etc., will be provided to the learners of Stream 2 and 3, as available for learners seeking admission through AIs and Stream 1 of On-line Admission.
