About The Curriculum
Jasudben M.L. School is affiliated with the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), a Delhi-based Board that has been created to cater to the needs of a heterogeneous group of learners. Established in 1990, NIOS is an independent board, which believes in ‘Sustainable inclusive learning with universal and flexible access to quality skill development’. NIOS follows its own curriculum, culminating in an examination. Successfully passing this examination provides for a certification that is on par with Std. XII passing out certificate. This is an alternative option to the formal system of education and offers opportunities to large sections of young students to be eligible for college admissions.
Jasudben M.L. School in Khar introduced NIOS for Std. X in 2015 and for Std. XII in 2016.
JML school is one of the few institutions in Mumbai offering the NIOS system to students who are in need of an alternate system of examination.
Over the years, the NIOS section at JML school has attracted students from a host of other institutions and schools. With a relevant and sound curriculum, the NIOS system encourages and empowers students to get on par with their peers, thereby also making them eligible for the college application process.

Eligibility for NIOS Std. XII: The Student must have passed Std. X from a recognized board and should be completing 15 years of age by the 31st July in the academic year in which they will be appearing.
