New Delhi, 28 May 2021 – Maharashtra Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad has announced that the Maharashtra Board Class 10 exam results will be declared by the end of June 2021. The marks will be calculated on the basis of the internal marks scored in Class 9 and Class 10. She further added that scoring and tabulation for Maharashtra Class 10 board students will be assessed “based on school-level assessment results out of 100 marks for each subject.”
Making the important announcement for the Maharashtra Class 10 board students, the Minister tweeted – “Given the pandemic situation & following the cancellation of state board exams for Class 10, the government has permitted the board to pass ALL Class 10 students studying in schools affiliated to it, with internal assessments being done at school level.”
Gaikwad has also announced that the Maharashtra government has decided to provide financial assistance to the students who lost their parents to COVID-19.
Until now, the Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad has held two meetings to come up with a criterion to evaluate the Class 10 students. One meeting was held with an educational research organization and the other was with principals and vice-principals of junior colleges. She said that different perceptive and valuable suggestions were made during the meetings regarding the evaluation process.
For the marking policy for Maharashtra Class 10 board exams, Education Minister Gaikwad explained –
“Final results will be based on subject-wise marks scored by a candidate in:
* Internal written evaluation conducted during the year (30 marks).
* Homework / oral exam / practical / internal assignments as per board’s policy (20 marks).
* final results of Class 9th (50 marks).”
She further added that undoubtedly, an ad-hoc arrangement had been made in an attempt to incorporate some semblance of ‘normal times’. The assessments for calculating Class 9 board exams for the state will have taken place entirely during pre-COVID times.
