As the result of Class 10 students was declared in Maharashtra, students of Class 12 or HSC are waiting for the announcement of their result.
Although the official announcement of the date and time of the result is still awaited, Maharashtra school education minister Varsha Gaikwad on July 2 had said that the results of Class 12 HSC board students will be declared by July 31.
Apart from that, the Supreme Court of India had ordered all states across India to declare the Class 12 results latest by July 31.
The Class 12 HSC board examinations were cancelled due to the Covid-19 second wave in Maharashtra.
As per the GR released by the state school education department, the assessment policy says, "For the theory portion of Class 12 exams, 40 percent weightage will be based on marks scored in unit test or first semester exams or practice exams of Class 12, 30 percent weightage will be given to marks scored in Class 11 and 30 percent will be based on the average of the best three performing theory papers of Class 10".
This assessment policy was decided after several rounds of consultations with various stakeholders. Gaikwad had said, "Given the pandemic situation, state board is permitted to pass all students. The policy is based on the evaluation method similar to the one devised by central education boards to maintain uniformity in Class 12 results".
She had also informed that the Junior colleges and higher secondary schools have been directed by the state school education department to form a result committee headed by the college principal and comprising of six teachers.
For students who are not satisfied with the final results of Class 12, there will be two opportunities available under the upgrade scheme in the adjoining examinations conducted by the state board when the Covid-19 situation gets back to normal, Gaikwad had said.
