STATE education minister Vinod Tawde has announced that those students who have been unsuccessful in their HSC class 12th examination can take a retest of HSC exams in July-August. Earlier Exams for repeaters were conducted in month of September-October because of which entire year of students would get wasted, as admissions for Graduate courses would already be over. This move initiated by Vinod Tawde will help students in saving their year from getting wasted.
Total No of Students Appeared for Maharashtra HSC Board 2016: 13,19,754
Total No of Students Passed in HSC Board 2016: 11,42,882
Total No of Students Failed for in HSC Board 2016: 1,76,872
“The supplementary exams of students who fail in HSC and SSC board exams are conducted in September-October,” said STATE education minister Vinod Tawde.
“By this time, admissions to all junior colleges are over and students have to wait until the next academic year to secure admissions,” he added.
“This leads to a lot of pressure among students who waste an entire academic year. The SSC re-exam worked well and over 35,000 students have benefitted. Hence, we have decided that from academic year 2016-17 the facility will be extended to HSC students too. It will help them to save a year and progress academically,” said STATE education minister Vinod Tawde. Students will be provided career counselling and it will not be mentioned as ‘failed’ in the marksheets of these students. Instead, it will state – ‘passed for July re-exam’ or ‘passed HSC for career counselling’. Tawde said the immediate re-exam will continue every year.
The examination to begin from July 09, 2016 is for those students who could not pass the March 2016 exams. The students who want to improve their pass percentage can also appear for this supplementary exam, the notification said.
