Change in Heavy content of Marathi Syllabus
184 views

To improve the falling pass percentage and encourage students to opt for Marathi as their second language in junior colleges, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Education (MSBSHE) has proposed to change the 'content-heavy' Marathi syllabus to focus on practical application such as conversational skills and grammar.

The state board is mulling over dividing the subject, offered as a second language at the junior college level, into Applied Marathi and Marathi Literature. Applied Marathi will aim at turning students into proficient Marathi speakers. Students will be free to choose either one of these subjects. "We are waiting for approval from the state government before introducing these changes. If the board has its way, we will be ready to implement this from the next academic year (2012-13)," said S Dhakne, secretary of the state board. Over the past few years, there has been a downward spiral in the pass percentage for Marathi and also in the number of students opting for it as their second language at junior college level. In 2011, the pass percentage of students in Marathi (second language) has fallen to 96.32%, from 97% in 2010.

"Students, especially from the English medium, find it hard to score more marks as it requires a lot of rote learning. It is also lacking in practical application. As a result, every year, we see a fall in the number of students opting for this subject," said a senior education official.
