The Maharashtra state board of secondary and higher secondary education has decided to reduce the marks weightage for mathematics for std IX and X, from the existing 150 marks to 100. The change for std IX will come into effect from the 2012-13 academic year and for std X, from the subsequent year. Sarjerao Jadhav, chairman of the board said, the first batch of std IX will appear for the 100 mark maths exam to be conducted in March 2013. In the February 2014 std X board exams, the same batch will appear for the 100 marks maths paper. But students appearing for std X board exam in February 2013 will write the 150 marks maths paper.
The state government has decided to revise the marks weightage to bring parity with the CBSE examination pattern. This will help the government resolve issues like the best five calculations, which had caused controversy, he added. The revised 100 marks examination would comprise 40 marks each for the algebra and geometry written exam. The remaining 20 marks would be for internal assessment. Students would have two and a half hours for the 80 marks written exam, Jadhav explained. City-based educationist Kedar Takalkar said, the board has reduced the marks but not the syllabus. This will result in more burdens on students for lesser marks. It may affect the student’s preparation schedule for the exams.
