Students who could not clear the Class XII examinations (Feb-March 2017) conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) will get another chance to reappear for the examination, and avoid wasting an academic year. According to MSBSHSE officials, students who failed in the March 2017 exam can appear for a supplementary exam in July.
Gangadhar Mhamane, Chairman, MSBSHSE said, "Students who failed to clear the papers will get another chance to appear for the exam starting July 11. The time table for the exam will be announced on June 1.”
This year, out of the 14,29,478 students who appeared for the board exams, 1,50,072 students failed. However, the average passing percentage of Maharashtra stands at 89.50 per cent.
The board’s decision to conduct re-examination in the month of July-August was first taken in 2015 when education minister Vinod Tawade stated that students can write papers in July-August instead of September-October, to ensure they do not miss out on an academic year.
Officials said, dates for filling exam forms and other information about the examinations will be made available on the board's website for the next seven days. The board has set up a helpline for the students and parents, whereby respective guides have also been appointed.
