You can take your Intermediate certificate if your done with your higher studies or else you can take your bank passbook for replacement of 10th certificate and Birth certificate is not required if you had Full DOB in Aadhar card

10th marksheet is for ECNR Passport and birth certificate is for DoB.

If you have any such document that carry your DOB like Aadhar card, PAN card, DL, voter icard etc. it can get substituted as DoB certificate.

Similarly, if you have any educational document higher than 10th mark sheet, that will go for ECNR passport.
