The Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government on Monday announced that it has decided to postponed the Maharashtra Board SSC (Class 10) and HSC (Class 12) board exams 2021 amid the alarming spike in coronavirus cases across the state. This comes days after the Maharashtra government announced that it will promote class 9 and class 11 state board students without exams.
Making the announcement, Maharashtra Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad said that the class 10th board exams will likely be held in June while class 12th students will have their exams in May. She said that fresh dates will be announced by the state board accordingly.
Gaikwad said that the Maharashtra government will also ask the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), IB and Cambridge boards to “reconsider their exams dates” amid the alarming spike in coronavirus cases across the state.
