Maharashtra SSC Result To Be Based On Class 9, 10 Internal Marks: Varsha Gaikwad
Maharashtra Board will release Class 10th SSC results by June-end. The Class 10th board exam results will be announced on the basis of internal marks obtained in Class 9 and Class 10.
Maharashtra Education Minister on Friday announced that SSC (Class 10) result this year will be declared based on the marks obtained by the students in Class 9 and Class 10 internal exams in the absence of physical board exams. Exams for Class 10 students in Maharashtra were earlier cancelled looking at the prevailing situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and also taking into account the safety and well-being of the students and staff members.

The Maharashtra government told the Bombay High Court earlier this week that the Board will make a decision on the evaluation criteria for SSC or Class 10 students soon.
A “fair and accurate” assessment criterion will be formulated after meetings with stakeholders, School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad had earlier said.
The minister had said marks will be awarded to students based on ‘internal assessment’ or ‘objective criterion’.
The court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Dhananjay Kulkarni, challenging the government's decision in April to cancel SSC exams due to a surge in COVID-19 cases.
Representing the government, P B Kakade said the government is yet to devise a formula to evaluate students (in the absence of the exam), and a decision will be taken in two weeks.
