Maharashtra government plans to implement new rules for Secondary School Certificate exam
In Maharashtra, there will be a new rule allowing students to choose five of the six subjects in which they score well for junior college admissions. The Maharashtra State government has proposed this plan to of ‘best of five' to the students appearing for Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exam (10th class of state Government).
The students will have a choice to drop any subject among four, namely Mathematics, Social Sciences, Science and Hindi, where they fear of losing score. However, the languages - Marathi and English - will be compulsory.
It has been reported that parents and schools are positive about the formula which would bring parity for students seeking admission to junior college (class 11th). The Government had invited suggestions and objections on the issue. The state board recently approved the formula and sent it to the Government for finalization.
The formula was proposed considering similar systems in ICSE and CBSE boards, due to which SCC students were losing admissions in good colleges. In the past online admission procedure for junior colleges was not very easy; the Government is taking all measures to avoid a similar fiasco this time around.
The school teachers are getting trained for the system so that mistakes can be avoided while filling the online forms. However, it has been made clear that only schools would be allowed to open admission centers for filling up forms and not any private organization.
