Maharashtra board exams to be held in offline mode

Amid the students protest for conducting board exams online, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education announced that offline exams would be held as per schedule in the state, with strict COVID protocols.

The news: The written theory exam will begin at 10:30 a.m. instead of 11 a.m. like every year. Students will get the exam papers in their hands ten minutes prior to the exam.

  • Sharad Gosavi, Director, Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education said, “To avoid overcrowding of students, the number of exam centres have been increased with every school being made into an exam centre, i.e students will be allowed to give exams at their own school.”
  • In case a student misses the examination due to COVID, he or she may be given a second chance at a later date. The board would be releasing detailed guidelines for the same at a later date.
  • Additional time would be given to students, 30 minutes or 15 minutes depending on the total marks of the theory paper. This is being done because students have lost writing practice.
  • Violent protests had erupted in Mumbai four days ago after students took to the streets to protest against the decision of the Maharashtra state education board to conduct offline exams for classes 10 and 12.
