Maharashtra HSC March 2013 Time Table Changed

  • The HSC chemistry paper, which was slated for February 27, will now be held on March 26. 
  • The Biology paper has been postponed from March 4 to 17
Mumbai, Maharashtra: The HSC Board exam time table was issued quite long time before, in the month of October, 2012. After a certain time of discussions based on the demands from HSC science students and teachers across the State, the Maharashtra Board has announced the change in the Data sheet for Class 12 board examinations, which are scheduled to start from 21st of February, 2013 onwards. 

The dates of Biology and Chemistry papers has been changed after teachers and students had pointed out that more time is required to study these two subjects. After raising this argument, students across Maharashtra wrote to the Education Minister based on which a debate was held at Mantralaya on Thursday and the new time table was announced. 

Many officials from the state board and the education department had taken part in the debate. Later, the final decision was made that these exams shall be held on Sundays as they did not want to disturb other examinations. 

On confirming the demands Krishnaroa Patil, in-charge secretary of State board assured that there had been several representations from teachers and students saying the syllabus were vast and the earlier time for preparation was not enough. 

Mumbai Junior College Teacher's Association said "The state upgrade the syllabus to match up to the CBSE curriculum but didn't check if teachers could finish the course or not. The board has also done away with external examiners for practicals. The board must make changes or will boycott". 

However, the teachers will be taking out a march to the Mumbai region board office on the coming Monday.
