F OREWORD With gradual and steady evolution since its inception on 23 November, 1989, the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) has made its presence felt not only throughout the length and breadth of the country but also in the international arena. It provides a wider choice of the courses of study upto pre-degree level through Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode of education. There are more than 6000 study centres of NIOS in India for delivery of its programmes like Open Basic Education, Secondary Education, Senior Secondary Education and Vocational Education. Some study centres of NIOS are in foreign countries also. In order t o cater to the educational needs of varied clientele, NIOS has planned to set up quite a large number of study centres in India and foreign countries. With such a vast organizational frame of NIOS, it is natural that prospective students and students enrolled in NIOS make various types of queries about admission, courses of study, support services and examination system at different levels. The institutions/ organization applying for accreditation from NIOS as study centres seek various types of information from time to time. Although, NIOS has set up a user friendly Learner Support Centre (LSC) through which callers can get details about NIOS programmes and activities, yet it has been observed that many queries continue to be replied/ clarified by the constituents of NIOS. Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj, Director, Department of Student Support Services, NIOS took a significant initiative to compile a Handbook on Frequently Asked Questions about NIOS and its programmes. He has consulted all Departments and Units of NIOS in this endeavour. I also appreciate Sh. U.N. Khaware, Former Secretary, Sh. C. Dharuman, Secretary & Director (Evaluation), Dr. Kuldeep Agarwal, Director (Academic) and officials of Vocational Education Department for supporting this initiative of Department of Student Support Services.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
