The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) have appointed psychologists and counsellors to help Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and Secondary School Certificate (SSC) students cope with examination stress. The Pune division of the state board will start help lines through which students can be counselled next week. The Mumbai division of the board has already started a helpline. Shahaji Dhekane, secretary of MSBSHSE said, we noticed that students have to face a lot of stress during examinations. So we thought we must provide them with some help to tackle it. The experts that we appoint at the Pune division will also help students from other divisions, except Mumbai. The state board operates a helpline every year during the exams, but these help lines are meant only for administrative queries.
This year, a separate helpline will be opened for personal help where psychologists and counsellors will be available for 24 hours till the exams are over. Also, personal contact details of these experts will be made available to students for future reference. Nikhil Deshmane, an SSC student said, “It is a good arrangement made by the board. It will definitely help us. Till now we could call only if we had problems with a hall ticket or exam centre. Now, we will get personal help”. While the MSBSHSE seems to be satisfied the State Parents Teachers Association (PTA) wants the board to take more efforts. Arundhati Chavan, president of the PTA said, “They should involve us in the process. We understand student’s problems better. If the responsibility is given to us, we will ensure better implementation of this project. Also, we can then do follow ups”.
