In light of the ongoing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic in India, the Maharashtra state government earlier cancelled the Class 10 (SSC) board examinations. As per reports, the SSC Board exam 2021 in the state was earlier scheduled to be held from April 28 to May 21, 2021.

Now, the education minister of the state has announced that “Board exam results for Class 10th will be based on exams conducted in Class 9th and 10th (internal marks). We will try to declare the results by the end of June“.
The assessment criteria will be based on a total weightage of 100 marks. The distribution of marks weightage has also been updated as per the latest reports. Marks of internal assessments conducted in Class 10, marks of practical exams conducted in Class 9 and the marks of Class 9 exam forms the assessment criterion.

|Class 10 Internal Assessments||30|
|Class 9 Practical Exams||20|
|Class 9 Exam||50|
Evidently, as per the new assessment criterion, the maximum marks weightage is attributed to the Class 9 exams. Based on these three assessment criteria, the result of the SSC Board exams 2021 in Maharashtra will be decided. The state education minister has reportedly announced that “those who are not satisfied with the results can write CET exams later“.
As per latest reports, the CET exam will be held as optional for a total of 100 marks. The exam will be conducted for a duration of 02 hours while the question paper will consist of MCQ type questions only. Such examination will be held as optional only after the COVID-19 pandemic situations have improved.
