Students appearing for the secondary school certificate (SSC) examination will have to secure a minimum score of 25% in the maths and science written exams this year. Till last year, the aggregate scores of the internal and theory exams were considered for passing, now, students will have to compulsorily pass in the written exam as well. The SSC exam will start from 1st March. While the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, which conducts the SSC exam, claimed to have announced the norm at the beginning of the academic year, however, several city schools are confused with over the new directive. “Most students score well in the internal exams”, said a senior official. “They believe that the aggregate score in the written and internal tests will help them clear the SSC exams. This increases the success rate as the schools assess the internal tests”, he added.
However, this year, “out of the total 120-mark written exam for maths, students have to get a minimum score of 30. In science, students will have to score a minimum of 15 marks (in the board paper of 60) to clear”, a senior official said. Sarjerao Jadhav, the state board chair person, said, “Students manage to clear the exam when both the written and internal scores are counted together. However, from the next year, students will have to get a minimum passing percentage in all the written papers. This year, the policy is applicable only to maths and science. Schools have been informed about it from the commencement of the academic session”. Several city principals mentioned that “an aggregate would be considered for passing”. However, Rekha Shahani, principal of Kamla high school in Khar, said, “The board has elaborated on the marking pattern, when the syllabus changed this year”.
