Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has declared examination dates for Higher Secondary Certificate examinations (HSC) and Secondary School Certificate (SSC) 2018 on Monday. The board officials, however, said that this is a tentative timetable declared in advance to help students prepare for the examinations accordingly.
As per the notification by the state board, HSC Class 12 exams will begin from February 21 and will continue till March 20, 2018. The SSC exams, on the other hand, will be conducted between March 1 to March 24, 2018, and will be conducted across nine divisions of Pune, Mumbai, Nashik, Amravati, Aurangabad, Kolhapur, Latur and Konkan. The detailed subject-wise and date-wise report has been uploaded on their website, the board officials said.
Gangadhar Mhamane, chairman of MSBSHSE, said, “This timetable is a tentative one and the final printed ones will be issues by the schools and junior colleges. All the students are required to confirm the dates and timings of all the exams. In case, they have certain views regarding the said dates, they can send written letters to the board within 15 days.”
The board officials said that the timetable has been uploaded on the website for the students’ convenience.
For practical and oral examinations, the statement added that the board would separately communicate to the schools.
Stating that students should not be misled by unauthenticated information, he added, “We have put down all the needed information on the website, so students need to treat that as their source and not social media, private websites or any other platform.”
This has been stated in view of the 2016 incident in which almost 40 students missed their Geography paper in HSC exams following wrong information circulated on WhatsApp.
