Maharashtra SSC Result 2021: The Maharashtra government is likely to decide on the evaluation criteria for Maharashtra SSC result 2021 soon. The Maharashtra government told the Bombay High Court on Thursday that a decision for class 10 students evaluation criteria can be expected in two weeks. The state government is under discussion with various experts and stakeholders on the same issue. A “fair and accurate” assessment criterion will be formulated after meetings with stakeholders, School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad had earlier said. The minister had said marks will be awarded to students based on ‘internal assessment’ or ‘objective criterion’.
Earlier, Maharashtra's government had cancelled the class 10 exam and postponed the class 12 exam. It was announced that the decision on HSC exams will be taken in June after considering the Covid situation in the state. Whereas for class 10th/SSC, Maharashtra Board is expected to release the criteria soon.
Bombay HC questions the decision to cancelling 10th exam
Bombay High Court criticized the Maharashtra government over the cancellation of class 10/SSC board examinations. The High court stated that it was making a mockery of the education system by cancelling the board examinations. The High Court bench consisting of Justice SJ Kathawalla and SP Tavade was seeking a reply to why the state board decided to cancel the board exam. The court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Dhananjay Kulkarni, challenging the government's decision in April to cancel SSC exams due to a surge in COVID-19 cases.
Representing the government, P B Kakade informed that the government is yet to devise a formula to evaluate students (in the absence of the exam), and a decision will be taken in two weeks. Earlier, The State Education Minister, Varsha Gaikwad, called for two meetings, one with an educational research organisation and the other with principals and vice-principals. Also, Ms Gaikwad had said the government will also come up with criteria for First Year Junior College (FYJC) or Class 11 admission, as the Class 10 exams have been cancelled.
