Several HSC science candidates have some more unscheduled changes coming their way. The state board will be forced to re-arrange some junior college centres for class XII science students after it realized that students of Classes X and XII will appear at the same centres on the same day March 12. The changes will affect some colleges but students will be informed in advance. This has set alarm bells ringing the authorities don’t want a situation that will contribute to copying or an HSC student helping an SSC student so venues will have to be changed for some Class XII students. Last week, several students were given multiple exam centres. On March 12, HSC science students will appear for biology paper-II, while SSC candidates will appear for science.
SSC and HSC papers rarely clash on days, but if they do, the timings are mostly different and not the same subject. On March 12, both exams will start at 11.00 am and end at 1.00 pm (biology paper-II, HSC) and 1.30 pm (science and technology, SSC). Schools/junior colleges that are centres for SSC and HSC science papers have been told to inform their capacity for both exams. Under the rule, we have told centres to check if they can have one student per bench. We will rearrange those that do not have the capacity. Students will be informed in a few days, said Ishwar Pawar, education officer, Kalyan (W). Pawar added that main centres under his jurisdiction have agreed to accommodate students On their campuses. State board officials claimed that SSC and HSC exam dates or timings never clash. The time-table is designed so that students in SSC and HSC have exam dates on alternate days. In case of a clash, some centres will have to be rearranged, said a board official. Ravindra Bhise, secretary, Mumbai division, said, many centres will not be hit. We have had discussions with the deputy director and education officials. Since the date clashes, some centres with less capacity will be told to hold the exam in neighbouring schools. Students in affected centres will not be inconvenienced and will be informed much in advance. Rukmini Mardhanan, chief conductor and supervisor, Birla College (junior section), Kalyan, said, we have been told to accommodate students from sub-centres as biology paper-II of HSC clashes with science of Class X. Two students cannot share a bench for the same subject. As we are a main centre, we have to accommodate all science students in sub-centres at our college. Students will be given prior intimation. Generally, 800 students appear at that centre, but that day, there will be around 1,400 and all buildings on the campus may be used.
